For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. Athletics serves as one of the greatest connectors in the world. It is one of the only things that breaks down all walls of ethnicity, status, age, and religion. It builds community and allows us to be in relationship with one another. I believe that the Lord allowed us to have athletics so that we may know him deeper and use it to make disciples of Jesus. We are on this journey together trying become more like Jesus, invite people into his kingdom, and we are thankful that he allows us to use things we are passionate about to do so.
