On August 15, the Hamilton Ticats took on the BC Lions and trampled them. For over 300 attendees, that wasn’t the highlight. After the game, many stayed to hear from five Ticats players, like Luke Tasker, as they shared their faith stories of how Jesus impacts them. Churches from around the Golden Horseshoe and even across the US border joined in this memorable event. Afterwards, children of all ages got to kick field goals and run passing routes like their CFL heroes.
The key goal of this event was building memories together. Children and their family members shared experiences that they normally wouldn’t have. Each family was offered a book called “Heart of a Champion“, which was donated by Athletes in Action as a way to continue their faith conversations.
It’s our prayer that these faith conversations will lead to a deepening of each participant’s relationship with Jesus in the coming weeks.
