“Thank you, God, that my life isn’t built on football...”
**- Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings Quarterback**
During his speech at Athletes in Action’s Super Bowl Breakfast in February, Kirk Cousins took the stage with his Bible in his hand. Raising it over his head, he continued,
“Because if my life is built on football, it would just crumble. I had made a decision, a GOOD decision, many years ago as a young man to build my life on this book...to make Jesus my master.”
After leading his team to the NFC Divisional Round in 2019, and receiving the highest guaranteed contract in the NFL in 2018 (as of signing) it would be easy for Kirk to find his value in football.
But Kirk knows his real value is eternal.
Kirk says giving Jesus control of his life was the best decision he ever made—better than the $84 million guaranteed contract he signed in 2018.
At Athletes in Action, we agree with Kirk—giving your life to Jesus is the best decision that anyone can make. We are all about reaching athletes with the gospel, helping them grow spiritually and using their platforms and influence to further proclaim the gospel.
But we can’t do this without your help, as a completely donor funded organization, we rely on the generosity of friends like you to exist.
Would you consider making a gift today to reach student athletes with the gospel? Today’s student athletes are the leaders of tomorrow.
With your support, the most influential members of their school, team or campus will be equipped to use their platforms and popularity not for their own glory, but for God’s.
Will you help reach athletes with the gospel of Christ?
All it takes is one student, one coach, one player to change their team, their school, their city.
