After serving as a volunteer with FCA, TJ joined FCA as a staff member in 2011. TJ's first passion is Jesus Christ but he also loves students and athletes. Serving as chaplain, T.J. serves SDSU players and coaches, and their families in whatever capacity they need. Through leading Bible Studies for coaches and for athletes, pre-game chapels, coordinating the Jackrabbit FCA Huddle and one on one counseling, he desires to be a blessing to the Jackrabbits. The foundation is what he calls the “ministry of presence,” whether encouragement, counsel, or simply a sounding board, players, their parents, and coaches know that God has placed him here to be a resource for them.
