We are very appreciative of the efforts of the NABC Ministry Team. Each year coaches write me expressing their deep appreciation that the NABC cares about the well-being of coaches including their spiritual growth. At a time where there is so much pressure for coaches to win at any cost, it is so very important to have one’s character and decisions rooted in faith that God will bless the work of our hands and grant us favor with all who cross our path.
