Andrew McClanahan and Brett Campbell, Greater Kansas City Area Representatives, hosted an E3 Discipleship Training last August. From long-time Huddle leaders to individuals just now starting FCA on their campuses, over 40 coaches, athletes and volunteers attended. The leaders felt encouraged about the ways God moved in the hearts of those who attended.
Kallie Muck, Head Lacrosse Coach at University of Saint Mary (Leavenworth, Kansas), participated in the training along with one of her assistant coaches and two of her team captains. With a heart for the mission of FCA and an understanding of the E3 strategy, Muck left the training feeling encouraged, motivated and eager to begin implementing aspects of E3 with her student-athletes.
“Every day I try to find small ways to engage, equip or empower my student-athletes,” Coach Muck said. “I have implemented a handful of tactics discussed at the training to do this, such as asking more intentional questions!”
Coach Muck wasn’t the only one impacted by the E3 training.
“My two junior captains were challenged to think about their relationships with the Lord and what kind of witness they give to their teammates,” Coach Muck said. “It also created opportunities for us to have very intentional and deliberate conversations about how our faith impacts our behavior and actions within sport.”
After the training, Coach Muck and her assistant coach began attending church together and discussed plans to begin a Bible study with the lacrosse team.
