"For am I now trying to
win the favor of people, or
God? Or am I striving to
please people? If I were
still trying to please
people, I would not be a
servant of Christ."
Success v. Significance
Every year, in early August, the football world descends upon Canton, Ohio. It is a weekend to
celebrate the success of the best of the best in the football world as a select few are permanently
enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As NE Ohio FCA, we strive to make sure that athletes
are not just striving for success, but more importantly, that they are striving for significance. This is
the vision behind the FCA Champions Breakfast, hosted annually during Hall of Fame Weekend.
This year, we were fortunate enough to have Coach Tony Dungy and Hall of Fame Player Anthony
Muñoz join us to share their testimonies. There were 300 coaches, athletes, and community
members present to hear each of their journeys not only to success, but to significance through their
relationship with Jesus Christ. It was an amazing morning, highlighted by 17 first time commitments
