DANIEL AND MEREDITH SHRADER
Daniel grew up attending small and mostly dysfunctional churches. As a physics major in college, he was wrestling with life's biggest questions: Where did we come from? Is there a God? Does he care about us? Why is the church so full of hypocrites? He found the answers he was looking for in the Bible, and gave his life to helping others understand the same amazing truths that gave him peace. He graduated from East Carolina University with BS in Physics, and moved to Russia with Campus Crusade for Christ to share the good news of Jesus with college students.
After a couple of years in Russia, he met his wife Meredith, who was serving on a two month summer mission trip. They have been married 10 years and have two beautiful children - Lily, age 7 and Hosea, age 3.
Daniel graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in May of 2010 with an M.Div. in Christian Ministry. Since then his mission has been to equip and mobilize churches and church leaders to bring life back to dying and dysfunctional churches like the ones he grew up in. He's excited about the work the Lord is doing in East Tennessee at West Hills Baptist Church!
The purpose of SPORTworks Ministry is most clearly summarized in the second Faith Direction as noted in the Mission Statement. “This ministry’s purpose is to prepare young men & women to serve and multiply for a lifetime as spiritual leaders wherever in the world God calls them.” Many student-athletes have leadership qualities already evident in their lives. Regarding athletics – they know where they are going and they are confident of getting there. They understand sacrifice and suffering for personal glory and gain. They are wholeheartedly obedient to whatever it takes to obtain it. Good or bad, they are role models. What they need is the understanding and motivation to use their gifts and their position of influence to glorify the One who has gifted them. Mentoring to this end takes place during much one on one time spent in a variety of situations. Group activities for fun, fellowship and teaching take place on a weekly basis. Chapels are set up with teams and counseling sessions occur frequently with individuals. A variety of Bible studies are available for coaches and student-athletes. This ministry models, motivates and teaches. Jesus Christ, as our Lord, Savior, and perfect model, will always be the focal point.
