What is Coaches Ministry?

In a word: Discipleship Coming alongside to encourage coaches in their walk with Christ, teaching them to coach using Biblical principles. II Timothy 2:2

Meet Jeff and Connie Brenning

Jeff recently retired after 34 years teaching math and coaching basketball. Jeff has been a part of the Westerville Coaches Ministry for the past few years. At first he was a regular attender to our Westerville Coaches Huddle, but now leads his own group. Connie has been a faithful/joyful coach’s wife and mother, as well as, a help at several Coaches Ministry functions.  They have been a vital part of the Coaches Ministry. We are very excited about the ministry God has planned for them as together we reach even more schools, coaches, coaches’ wives/families and athletes. Please pray for this dear couple as we work together in this valuable ministry to coaches.

Meet Daryl and Debbie Bell

Daryl & Debbie Bell have become an integral part of the FCA family. They joined the staff of FCA after coaching at Worthington Christian High School for 24 years. Daryl was the Head Coach of the Boys and Girls High School Track & Field and Cross Country Teams; Debbie served at his side. Daryl says, “Whenever you do something you love for years, it is hard to let it go, particularly after God provided so many wonderful memories of great times with great athletes and great parents.”

 After leaving WCHS the Bell’s decided to take a year to seek the Lord for new direction. After a year of prayer, Daryl had the opportunity to minister to 20 coaches at an FCA camp at the University of Findlay. The Bells then attended a Coaches Marriage Retreat where they met President of FCA, Les Steckel, and his wife Chris. It was further confirmation that they were made for this ministry.

 Coach Bell is serving faithfully in Central Ohio as the Director of Coaching Ministries and Debbie is his assistant. With FCA’s renewed emphasis on ministering to coaches and their spouses, the Bell’s believe God has called them for “such a time as this”. Coach Bell says, “We have rubbed shoulders with coaches for so long; we know what they think about the pressures to win, about the pressures their marriages undergo and the answers that can be found in God’s Word. We need to encourage growth in their knowledge of God.” Coach and Mrs. Bell are thrilled to share with other coaches in this ministry.
