Years Coaching: 1

Chosen Attribute: Serving

Why is this attribute important to you?

As a follower of Christ, I feel called to take a posture of servitude in my daily life. For the “Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Matt. 20:28). Imitation is the highest form of flattery, so if we are in fact followers of Jesus, then we will imitate Him in all means possible. This is certainly not limited to serving, but it is a way that God has led me to glorify His name.

What is your favorite scripture verse?  Why is this important to you?  

Right now my favorite scripture is all of Psalm 51. It is an incredible song in which David recognizes his sinfulness and his unworthiness, yet he still yearns to be in the presence of the Lord and tell everyone of God’s great love for us. David acknowledges the Holy Spirit working in his life by stating that “you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart” (v. 6). Even though David was a sinful man, the Spirit still spoke to him in order to grow closer to the Father. David then requests for God to create a pure heart in him so that he can go out and declare his praise for the Lord by singing out loud about his righteousness and giving his best offerings.

It is quite easy for me to relate to David since I have also fallen short of God’s expectations, yet He still speaks to me, still loves me, and I still want nothing more than to sing His praise. The greatest part of this story is what it tells us about God. God takes our weaknesses and intercedes to show His strength.

Through our failures, He is good!

What is your dream coaching job (if different than your current position)?  

I would enjoy coaching in college just as much as high school.

Share a recent coaching highlight that you have had.

This last year coaching and serving with our athletes has been a blast. We are fortunate to be a part of a Lutheran school, so we are able to participate in mission trips as well as having team Bible studies and retreats. It has been quite a fun experience to coach hockey through the lens of my identity in Christ.

Tell us a little bit about your coaching philosophy.  Why do you coach?  How does your faith play into your coaching?  Which coach has had the greatest impact on you and the way you coach?  What ways are you able to make an impact for Jesus at the ice rink?

I aim to provide a place where my players can develop their skills, learn team concepts, grow together in their faith, and have fun. Our guys have some great potential to further their hockey careers, so we want to make sure we give them every opportunity to reach their goals of junior or collegiate hockey.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
