Announcing Nashville SC Chaplain Billy Cerveny
Soccer Chaplains United is pleased to announce the approval and placement of Billy Cerveny to serve as chaplain for Nashville SC. Billy is a long-time Nashville resident and a pastor at Midtown Fellowship Church. Before becoming a pastor, Billy was a Nashville singer and songwriter as well as a writer and television producer. He co-wrote the book “Take The Walk” with the band Hanson. He comes to Soccer Chaplains United after our 6-month search stretching back to August of 2017.
The placement has taken an extra amount of time as Nashville SC was recently awarded an expansion placement with Major League Soccer (MLS). The team will begin play in the United Soccer League (USL) until the team makes the transition to MLS at some point in the next couple of years. Billy will begin to develop the chaplaincy and care work with the Nashville SC organization this year.
I am very excited to serve the staff and players of the Nashville SC. It has already been a tremendous blessing getting to know the team and walk with them in these beginning stages. I’m very excited for what the Lord has in store this inaugural season.
As a chaplain, Billy’s gifts and experience in pastoral care and counseling will be well utilized as he looks to serve athletes, coaches, staff, and executives with Nashville SC. Billy and his family reside in Nashville.
