Spiritual Life Week

IMG_0005

Rich Green, pastor of Compass Christian Church in Dallas, TX, spoke to our MS and HS students during the fall Spiritual Life Week (August 29-September 2).. Rich has been married to his wife, Patty, for 35 years and has three grown children. He’s a grandfather of one with three grandkids on the way! Rich has been involved in sports ministry most of his life, and has spoken in NFL, NBA and college chapel services. Rich’s connection to Morrison is through our HS Principal, Doug Bradburn. He and Doug worked together at a large HS in Indiana for five years. Doug was his son’s HS football coach.

During Spiritual Life Week, Rich challenged students to become a Champion of God. His heart’s desire was to teach students that God’s presence is a reality; it’s not just a feeling.  He wanted students to know that God is pursuing them and wants to partner with them as they strive to be Champions of God.
