Chosen Attribute: Serving

Why is this attribute important to you?

In my walk with Christ, I have found that serving is one of the biggest attributes in building a lasting relationship with Christ. Serving and helping others is one of the most rewarding things I have ever experienced and there is nothing that compares to helping another.  


What is your favorite scripture verse?
"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:13

Engraved into the palm of my hockey glove with permanent ink, this verse has been one that has always stuck with me. Christ is the most powerful thing on this earth and with Him on our side it is incredible the power we are given by His words. Whenever I have doubts in my everyday life, I always turn to this verse as it reminds me how weak I am by myself, though with Christ anything is possible. 

What else should we know about you?
Kevin came to know the Lord after a friend of his, Gerrit Davis, invited him to church.  Ever since that day, Kevin has been completely consumed by His word. Kevin has been involved in helping to lead different youth groups, as well as getting involved in Young Life.  On the ice, he played two years in Dallas for the Junior Stars, before joining the Bandits.  He is an offensive defenseman and has helped the team put together a 14 game winning streak.  Kevin grew up in California and plans to play college hockey while studying Sports Medicine.   For your dedication to Serving your teammates, your friends and family and your Lord, FCA Hockey is proud to recognize Kevin as the February “FCA Hockey Heart and Soul” Athlete of the Month.

I had the pleasure of serving at a Younglife camp along side of Kevin for 2 months. His passion and love for god spilled out of him daily and everyone saw it. he was a man of faith and had no problem sharing it with anyone that would listen.

I haven't been able to watch hockey on TV for forever been surviving on Yahoo! and Versus online broadcasts and whatever live streams I can scrounge up. Three cheers for the Jan. 1 game! No wonder Fleury was pissed when he got injured.
