Changing the world through sports

925 has without a doubt changed my life. College athletics is the most challenging thing I have ever done in my life, and with being so focused on what was around me, I lost what little relationship I had with Christ. Having a fellow teammate invite me to 925, and continue to invite me even when I made half hearted excuses as to why I couldn’t come, allowed me to realize how much I needed something bigger than myself. I needed something to give me faith, trust, and love again and the Lord is the answer to all of that.

The first night I decided to make myself go, I was so anxious, but seeing all my peers going through the exact same things I was in school, sports, and life made me so comfortable. I was able to really focus on the message and take in every word without feeling judged or self-conscious. I now have an amazing relationship with christ that I am still developing every day. Without 925 I would not have gotten back to my faith at such an early and pivotal part of my life. I have developed closer relationships with my teammates and have had deeper conversations than I have ever had. 925 allowed me to connect with people who I could truly relate to and the leaders were able to help me to connect to something so much bigger and deeper than just being an athlete.
