If you’ve ever been to a tournament, you’ve been able to witness God’s faithfulness in providing the right people at exactly the right time. I’ve marveled over the years at the number of times the Ballot Distribution team, lacking judges for ballots on the table, stopped to pray, and moments later, the necessary judges were available. The same is true for our national team. For the last two seasons, we’ve met regularly to pray for the needs of the league and our Affiliates and for the Lord to make His will known at the operational level for our team. He has graciously provided an opportunity for us to expand our ability to develop excellent educational resources for our students, parents, and coaches without sacrificing the introduction of NCFCA’s mission to new folks. Effective July 1, Mrs. Amy Joy Tofte (IL, Region VI) will begin service as our Director of Education while Mrs. Natalia Rosa (TX, Region XII) will continue to serve us exclusively as Director of Marketing. We are excited beyond measure to see what the Lord has in store through the diligent service of these two ladies and the rest of our staff. Thank you for continuing to pray alongside us for every detail of NCFCA’s day-to-day operations.
NCFCA’s mission is protected by the intense commitment of its Board of Directors. This group of dedicated volunteers is responsible for putting sound governance and financial policies in place that will allow the organization to continue to grow and thrive. Since NCFCA’s inception, we have been blessed with individuals who have given of their time and talents to serve us all, but more importantly, in service to Christ. During the National Championship, Board Chairman, John Blom (ID, Region II) welcomed Mrs. Ann Langdon (OH, Region VI) and Dr. Ravi Paul (NC, Region IX) to the Board of Directors. Feel free to take a moment to read their bios on the website and to drop them a note of welcome.
