  • The Timothy Project, through Soccer Chaplains United, is returning to the Kingdom of eSwatini for the third year in a row!  Never heard of eSwatini?  That's because up until April 2018, the country was named Swaziland.  (The king renamed the country in honor of the 50th anniversary of gaining independence.)  Despite eSwatini being only the size of New Jersey, and almost literally halfway around the word, the Timothy Project has been connected in 2016,  2017, and now again in 2018! I will be going to eSwatini with a team from Mountain Springs Church in Colorado Springs in coordination with Beyond Survival.  Once again, we will be working with Adventures in Missions on the ground in eSwatini.  Adventures in Missions serves

  • The United Soccer League (USL) recently made an announcement of another expansion franchise that is set to join the league next year. USL New Mexico will begin play next year. The league held an introduction announcement today. USL NM will be based in Albuquerque, NM and will be the 4th expansion team for the second division professional league in 2019. USL NM joins Birmingham, El Paso, Austin, and Memphis as cities and teams that will begin play in 2019. But, more importantly, the franchise becomes approximately the 20th in the second division that does not have a chaplain serving the team. With soccer in North America booming right now, many cities are looking for opportunities to add a professional team to

  • My latest trip to Rio Grande Valley was another example of seeing the way that God works. My flight down to McAllen, Texas had a long layover in Houston. I reached out to former player, Jared Watts with whom I have a strong relationship and who shared his testimony with Soccer Chaplains United. Watts, traded earlier this season from the Colorado Rapids to the Houston Dynamo and myself hoped to maybe get an hour at a coffee shop during one of the layovers. what we both received was more than we both could have hoped for. An hour before leaving Denver, I texted Jared, Hey bro, just a reminder I've got a 3 hour layover today. No worries though. He

  • Timothy Project: Soccer Chaplains United team members had the joy this week to deliver soccer gear that will change lives forever. For the sixth year, Valor Discovery is sending a team of students to Zacapa, Guatemala.  Soccer Chaplains United has had the pleasure of supporting the team in the past and is pleased to do so again this year. It was a beautiful spring afternoon as the teenagers sorted and organized the donations to be taken to Zacapa.  Rev Brad Kenney spoke words of encouragement and blessing to the team on a driveway that was overflowing with donations, new and used.  The generosity of the local community is moving.  The students will be able to touch many lives with the

  • Announcing our latest App Update! Soccer Chaplains United App now features prayers in English and Spanish! We've just added a section entitled Prayers to the Media/Podcast section of our app. There are teams and places in the world where a player, coach, official, or a family member may not have access to a chaplain. Sometimes, it might be right before surgery. Sometimes it could be before a big game or moment — and someone just needs to know that God sees them, God knows them, God loves and cares for them. The Prayer section is designed to give encouragement and support to those who need it most. Soccer Chaplains United will continue to add and develop original content and are

  • Today marks my third trip this year to work with our Soccer United Chaplains that are spread throughout the United States. I head to McAllen, Texas to spend a couple of days with our newest chaplain, Isidro Piña, to the Rio Grande Valley Toros FC who play in the United Soccer League. Earlier this year, I spent a few days in Nashville and utilized the first-ever match for Nashville SC (a pre-season match) to do work with our new chaplain there. I also spent a day in Chicago with our chaplain for Moody Bible Institute before heading to Charlotte and using the first match of the season to do some work with our chaplain to the Independence. Why travel? As
