On November 4, I was privileged to participate in the Chaplains Roundtable event sponsored by Our Daily Bread at Traders Point Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana (USA). Around sixty people attended from Indiana and surrounding states, men and women who serve as sports chaplains in high schools, universities, in motor racing, the National Football League, the NBA Developmental League, and in the Women’s National Basketball Association.
Troy Murphy, chaplain to the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, spoke to us at the beginning and end of the event with wisdom and passion. Jim Stump, sport chaplain and mentor to countless young men across over forty years at Stanford University, did a workshop where he shared the power of one to one mentoring and I did a workshop about www.globalsportschaplaincy.org and how we can use it effectively in our ministries.
The kind people of Our Daily Bread, Bill Houston in particular, were outstanding in every way. They provided materials, managed logistics, and dealt with all the technology to make everyone’s presentations look and sound good.
Another Chaplains Roundtable will be held on Tuesday Dec. 1 at South Church in Lansing, Michigan (USA). To register or for more information, simply log onto http://chaplainsroundtable.weebly.com/coming-events.html. Please consider attending this event for the training, networking, and mentoring.
