CHARLESTON, S.C. – As they do the first Monday of each month, the Charleston Southern athletics department gathered in the Brewer Center on campus for the school’s FCA rally. This month’s guest was Darrell Coulter, a former football great and current pastor in the Charleston area.
Coulter was a quarterback at Burke High School in Charleston before going on to a hall of fame career at Morgan State. His powerful but humorous message challenged the student-athletes and coaches in attendance by asking “What are you not willing to give up for Christ?”
Noting that a lot of people want their lives as Christians to be easy, Coulter emphasized that Christians are not called to live easy lives, but to sacrifice for the greater good.
“What good is a 20,000 member church if that church is not changing the community,” ask Coulter. “That kind of church is not the church that is talked about in the Bible.”
The gathering started with a Simon-says competition, won by baseball player Brandon McKinney, whose reciting of the books of the New Testament earned him the championship.
