An Audience of One

An athlete participates in Athletes in Action’s Ultimate Training Camp

This fall, Nate has been helping Athletes in Action (AIA) determine how they can be even better stewards of the money God has entrusted to them for evangelism and discipleship.

AIA, a ministry of Cru, strives to see Christ-followers on every team, in every nation, in every sport—from high school to professional.

This past fall, Jesus has been opening doors for ministry at the University of Connecticut.

So far, the AIA staff at UConn have been able to connect with the women’s cross country team, the men’s track and field team, the women’s crew team, the men’s club lacrosse team, and the men’s and women’s swim teams.

Currently there are three Bible studies for athletes on the UConn campus.

Please pray for Maggie, a junior member of the UConn crew team. Nearly 20 of Maggie’s teammates have expressed interest in an investigative Bible study!

Because so many UConn women’s basketball players play in the WNBA, the UConn AIA staff are frequently asked to lead WNBA chapels before games. These chapels are 10 minutes long and may not seem worth the effort.

However, a WNBA mother recently said, “When I go to my daughter’s apartment, I see the reading material and devotionals she brings back from chapel on her kitchen table next to her Bible.  Please tell the chaplains that what they do makes a difference.”

You are making a difference in the lives of athletes! Thank you!
