The word is getting out about something really special that is happening at Britton Christian Church. About one year ago Steve Porter and I took a group of kids to play tennis at the Oklahoma City Tennis Center. Steve’s idea has turned into one of the most exciting ministry opportunities happening at BCC.
As time passed, the word began to spread, new coaches and kids joined us, we received a grant from the USTA to buy racquets, balls, and portable indoor nets for cold weather, and now the BCC Tennis Academy is making a huge impact on the lives of about 30 kids from our community. It is amazing how the Lord has taken an idea, provided help through coaches like Jessica Reineke, former OU Women’s Tennis player, Elna Wilson, former Mississippi State Women’s tennis player, Rob Braver, former OU Men’s Tennis player, and the list keeps growing. Along with these dedicated coaches we have lots of help from parents and other adults who give their Sunday afternoons to cheer for the kids, pick up balls, and provide help in whatever way is needed. We are having tons of fun and celebrating God’s amazing work among our kids.
