Jordan Medas to Lead Up East Coast

May 28, 2024

Today, I am really pleased to announce that volunteer chaplain, Jordan Medas, has offered to step into a role serving Soccer Chaplains United as the East Coast Chaplaincy Manager. With the appointment, Jordan becomes the second chaplain manager and pairs with Jubal McDaniel who serves on the west coast.

The chaplain growth of 2023 (8 chaplains and 40% growth) has led to an increase in the importance of supporting existing chaplains all while continuing to discover and develop new chaplains. While still fairly new role, the chaplain managers (both Jordan and Jubal) are tasked with 1) supporting chaplains within their particular timezones and 2) working to discover and develop out new chaplains for new chaplain opportunities that arise.

Despite being a Liverpool supporter, I’ve had to be ok with Jordan becoming a chaplain manager

Jordan joined Soccer Chaplains United in June of 2021 and served regionally in Orange, VA. In 2023, he transitioned to serving a youth club which has since become a Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsored club. Jordan’s role as chaplain as shifted and he has been freed up to work more with Soccer Chaplains United administratively and helping with chaplain support.

As Soccer Chaplains United continues to grow (about to break 30 chaplains) we are aiming to retain a high-level and standard which is guided by our common code of conduct and fairly strict, professional standards. Adding Jordan to help us manage the growth is a key part of seeing what God is doing through Soccer Chaplains United
