Team On A Mission

justinukraine.jpgBelmont University’s Paul Chenoweth reflects on a different aspect of the Bruins men’s basketball team as they head to the NCAA tournament: “Their achievements in the classroom, on the court, and in the real world are a true reflection of Coach Rick Byrd, his staff, and a commitment to Belmont’s Mission. Several times in yesterday’s game, the Belmont team playing on the court was full of last year’s Sports Evangelism Team who traveled to Ukraine. I cannot begin to describe the depth of caring, compassion, and spirit that Deb & I witnessed personally during that trip…the passion and intensity of their play yesterday might give you some idea of how these men live all aspects of their lives.” Pictured: Belmont Bruins basketball player Justin Hare visits an orphanage in Ukraine.
