IN HIS OWN WORDS
Selfish ambitions are left at the door and these men compete to serve the Lord and each other on a daily basis. The IAm3rd philosophy isn't a special formula developed in an effort to increase the chance of winning the basketball game, but rather a way of life that fosters accountability and love between a group of men seeking to grow a little each day.
Being fearless means taking a leap, leaving your comfort zone, and not allowing your fears to limit your potential.
Describe your experience IWU...
Life-changing. My testimony grows each day that I am here. I'm entering my second and final year of the GA program and there just isn't enough time. I knew I would learn more about basketball, but I didn't realize how much I would learn about myself. My story is unique and this chapter is no different. God opened doors for me to be here and this program delivered in a major way. I am thankful for the relationships I have developed here and I am excited to see what happens for the upcoming season!
