Players' & Coaches' Bible-based character development
We conduct weekly Bible-based character / leadership studies for student / athletes and coaches. We go through different material each semester. We are currently finishing up a study on leadership called Habitudes by Dr.Tim Elmore an associate of the John Maxwell Leadership Team.
One-on-One Life Change
We meet one-on-one with student / athletes and coaches to encourage them and guide them as they go through difficult times. We share with them the value of having Christ in their lives and answer questions they have about Christianity and their faith.
Mentoring of Athletes
When athletes are struggling, whether academic, in relationships, or athletically, we make ourselves available to mentor them in a one-on-one setting. We provide a safe outlet for them while many are away from family for the first time in their lives.
Coordinate Community Outreach
After doing some leadership and character development with the student/athletes, we take them to local schools to share their stories with the students and encourage them to make the right choices. To date we have take athletes to dozen schools and youth events and impacted over 2,500 youth.
Lance coordinates chapels the night before each football game. Sometimes he speaks and other times he brings in guest speakers to motivate the team and coaches. He also coordinates chapels before many of the home baseball games.
E-mail Devotionals At the beginning of each week, Lance writes a devotional that he sends to our financial and prayer supporters via e-mail. Along with the devotionals, they also get a weekly update of what happened the previous week and the plans for the current week.
Throughout the year, we invite different groups of student/athletes to our homes for dinner and fellowship. It's a great opportunity for them to get away from campus, enjoy a home cooked meal, and see a positive example of marriage and family life.
Speaking at Churches, Retreats, Camps, & Schools
The staff of WhoUWith? are available to speak at events for churches, schools, and other ministries. Every summer Lance speaks at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes National Camp and also at various retreats throughout the year.
