A handful of the JFCA Saints Baseball team, in particular Charlie Moore, Ryan Plunk, Zach and Braden Heacock, and Nate Jenkins, took time out of their weekend to volunteer with Noonday Baptist Church’s youth baseball ministry. Noonday Baseball is a developmental rec ball league that has a very large ministry outreach to underprivileged kids in the community. The Saints helped the 9-12 year old participants learn pitching and catching skills and discussed staying positive in a sport where failure is a regular occurrence.
Pat Jenkins, father of returning Saints catcher Nate Jenkins (Jr.) helped with the event and had this to say about the Saints, “All of the kids left the event as better ballplayers and with a heightened awareness of Christ’s love because of the Saints.”
