Edison FCA

Edison FCA was great today! Thank you to CPC youth Pastor Justin Herman who shared with the students today! Only one more huddle left this year.

Mission Viejo FCA - Break Free Ministries

Yesterday at Mission Viejo HS FCA we were blessed to have Josh, Eddie, and JoJo from Break Free Ministies come share their gifts with us! The talented breakdancers put on a show for the 100+ students in attendance and everyone enjoyed it. After dancing Josh got a chance to share some of his story and about the love of Jesus and our need to really KNOW him! It was a great huddle!

Mariners Christian School FCA Huddle

Last Friday OC FCA hosted a collaborative FCA huddle for the 6th 7th and 8th grade students at Mariners Christian School! FCA staff along with 12 FCA student leaders from some local high schools had a blast passing out t-shirts, playing games and challenging each student to get involved with FCA when they enter high school! Grace and Alexa Boyer shared about being student leaders @ Mater Dei, and what each student could expect when they became leaders. Then Laney Barkley closed the day of with a story about how being an FCA leader on her campus is a great way to reach people that may have never known about Christ. She shared about how being an FCA leader has left a lasting impact on her campus!

Our hope as a staff is to encourage each of these students to make an impact for the Kingdom as they enter high school! Please continue to pray for the great work that MCS is doing raising up future leaders for Christ!

Egypt is a dynamic speaker who had the attention of everyone in the room, parent and student alike, from the moment he stepped on stage! Egypt challenged us all to think about hte choices we make everyday form a Godly perspective. Thanks Egypt!

The Wright Man - STV

April 2011

Author’s Note:What started as a lump in my throat eventually worked its way down into my stomach as I read the ESPN.com headline. Something to the effect of, “Wainwright injures pitching elbow.” “This can’t be good,” I thought.

Just a few weeks earlier, I had interviewed the Cardinals ace for our April cover story, and, as soon as I read the news, I knew we were going to have to make some adjustments to the magazine, which was already mid-production. But that internal knot wasn’t just the result of professional nerves; it was also the product of personal compassion.

The human side of me felt awful for Wainwright, who is a solid, sold-out man of God. The last thing I wanted was for him to get hurt. I wanted him to keep pitching well and thriving on the mound, using his gifts to bring glory to the Lord, which is something he loves to do.

After interviewing Wainwright over the phone while he and his family were driving to Florida for spring training, I’d written a story focusing on the lofty expectations he was shouldering this season and how his faith was helping him stay focused. Thus, when I learned that Wainwright would be having season-ending Tommy John surgery, I had to shake my head at the irony. All those expectations were going to go unmet—at least for now.

Sky High Leader Night

On Friday night 21 of my FCA student leaders from Edison, Huntington Beach, Mission Viejo, and Crean Lutheran high schools got together to hang out! We went top a house and ate pizza and got to know each other and then we headed out to Sky High to have some fun! It was a great night of bonding between leaders at all the schools and it was simply fun! Here are some pictures from the night!
