When God first planted the idea of Play4Him in my head a few years ago, my plan was to just make a couple of team videos. I never intended to start a non-profit. I never intended to make so many individual videos. Or sell shirts. Or pass out player cards.

           But God had other plans.

           He brought so many people into my life at just the right moment to help me. He made it very easy for me to see that Play4Him was not started by me but by Him. There is no way that I alone could connect with all the talented and amazing people that have helped get Play4Him off the ground.

           With that being said, I would like to introduce someone that God has blessed us with and the newest member of the Play4Him team - Jon Root. Jon, who is currently the San Jose Sharks In-Arena Host and played football at Azusa Pacific University before recently moving to the Bay Area. He will be the Blog Coordinator, where he will make connections with Christian athletes around the country, interview them and write for our blog. He has a heart for Jesus and has a great desire to share his faith with others through his career in sports and entertainment. Welcome to the team, Jon!       

          I am excited to announce that we will be posting blogs. Hopefully this will be another way we can reach people for Jesus. Our hope is to not only reach those that do not know Jesus personally yet but also encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ in their walks with Him.
