How I came to know Christ: After a career ending shoulder injury playing professional baseball, I met my Lord and Savior. It was at a church in Albuquerque in 1989 when I first heard the gospel. I realized that I was a sinner, and that I needed a Savior. God used my baseball injury to get my attention, and my life has never been the same since that night I responded to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Why I work for FCA: This is where God has called me working with coaches and athletes.
Goals and vision for this year with FCA: My goal is to see coaches and athletes reached for Christ and for them to use their platform of sports to grow His kingdom here in Utah.
