Today was a day that I will never forget. We launched the ever FCA Faith and Family Chapel at Arrowhead Stadium prior to the Chiefs noon home game against the Rams. It was one of the most incredible ministry experiences I've ever witnessed. To our knowledge, this is the first fan's chapel service of any NFL team! Here's to making some history!I was nervous about the turnout because we only really promoted it on WEDNESDAY of last week (like a few days prior to the game). But God brought people and they heard about it via social media and came anticipating God to move in their hearts.
One of my favorite parts of the service was talking to people before the service. There were two ladies who sat on the third row who got there at 8:15am! They wanted to make sure they got a good seat! We didn't start until 9:30! That's awesome! I met people all over the country who were visiting Arrowhead for the first time and came because they wanted the full game-day experience. And boy did they ever!
Worship was amazing led by Marvin Mumford and after a quick time of my preaching, Mike DeVito did an amazing job of sharing his personal stories of what it takes to live in the second mile! Mike did a GREAT job. At the close, I gave an opportunity for people to give their lives to Jesus and we had 8 people give their lives to Christ! I told them that they walked into this stadium a "dead person walking" and they are leaving "alive in Christ"!
The Hunt family (owners of the Chiefs) attended as well as Chiefs President, Mark Donovan and VP, Bill Chapin. Here's what Mark Donovan had to tweet out:
Needless to say, we are off to a great start. Next week is going to be just as good as we welcome Carey Casey, CEO of the National Center for Fathering as well as the former Chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys and KC Chiefs. He's an unbelievable speaker and one that you won't want to miss. See you then!
