FCA Capital One Bowl Breakfast 2011
The 2011 Capital One Bowl Breakfast did not disappoint as we were stirred up to pursue Christ in our lives beyond the game of football. 482 people attended to hear testimonies from players, coaches and chaplains of the Universities of Nebraska and South Carolina. 128 of our local coaches and football players attended and no doubt were impacted as they listened to those whom they admire. Simply put, the mission of FCA was in full action; to present to the Central Florida coaches and athletes and all whom they influence the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
We heard from Chaplain Adrian Depres, Conditioning Coach Dan Austin and Offensive Guard Kaleb Broome from the University of South Carolina. From the University of Nebraska Assistant Coach Ron Brown and I-Back Curenski Gileylen shared of their faith and love for God. It was overwhelming how the Lord reminded us through the testimonies of both Coach Ron Brown and Junior Kaleb Broome whom had been adopted of our ultimate adoption by our heavenly Father.
We finished with Keynote Speaker Ken Smith who shared a story of a young autistic boy who was in his church’s play. Because of his disability, the only role he had that the teachers thought he could not mess up was to deny Joseph and Mary from the inn. All he had to do was say “there is no room in the inn”. But this young boy just could not do it! Instead of denying them he said, “Jesus must have a room…you can have my room”. Clearly the play was thrown off track, but the young boy got it completely right; we should always make room in our “inn” for Jesus.
