The Major Sports Events Chaplaincy Committee takes very seriously its role in recommending sports chaplains to organising committees. Our selection process gives a high priority to appointing experienced chaplains with a servant heart so as to ensure that athletes are served and protected. In providing chaplaincy to those in sport we want to ensure that they are pastorally cared for and provided for.
I have competed for the USA swim team in 2 Olympic Games, 2 World University Games, and 1 Pan American Games. At each of these major sporting events I was so encouraged by the sport ministers who were either from my country or who I already had a previous friendship with. Meeting personally with my chaplain from 1991 to 2000 at these various Games was a big part of my success. Our times together were short and personal but so helpful.
