FCA Wrestling’s ministry allows me to serve Christ in a sport I truly love. It allows me to be a part of a ministry that helps develop young men and women and coaches in their faith walks. Being a part of this ministry in this sport shows God’s goodness in allowing me to see His hand at work—not only in the U.S.—but now throughout the world.”
