CSU Holds First FCA Rally of the YearSeptember 7, 2010
By CSU Sports Information
CHARLESTON, S.C. – The athletes and coaches of Charleston Southern gathered together on Monday night for the first FCA rally of the season. After a quick dance contest between assistant football coach Gabe Giardina (who won) and assistant women’s basketball coach Sloan Calvert, Summit Church pastor Jon Davis gave a powerful message from Mark 5.
Davis gave the analogy of a football coach organizing lockers by positions, putting offensive linemen next to defensive backs in order to stretch relationships and forcing associations with people that you might not have much to do with. In Mark, you can see where Jesus did the same thing.
Showing that Jesus sent a formerly demon possessed man out in Decapolis to share his testimony, he proved the difference that one man with a simple message could make. The next time that Jesus visited the area, instead of one follower, large crowds gathered to hear the Good News.
Davis finished the meeting with a challenge, asking the crow “Will you be Jesus’ missionary here at CSU? All you have to do is the same thing that the demon-possessed man did and tell them what the Lord has done for you.”
