Chaplaincy and Counseling

Dec 04, 2019

Sport, especially the sport of soccer, is increasingly filled with more and more pressure. Pressure to perform, pressure to leave family, pressure to succeed, and more. Part of the work of Soccer Chaplains United is to look to care for the entire person that is involved in the game — whether an athlete, a coach, executive, or staff member, and even fans — our aim and mission to provide chaplaincy and counseling support that can care for the entire person and their family.

In today’s From the Touchline episode, Rev Brad and Counselor Brooke Ewert have a recorded conversation about chaplaincy and counseling and some of the different approaches and challenges that come with trying to work together and connect the two.. Brooke is the Director of Counseling for Soccer Chaplains United and also has her own practice, Rocky Mountain Sports Counseling. Rev Brad Kenny is the Founder/Executive Director and Lead Volunteer Chaplain for the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer.
