Winter Olympics Chaplain to Speak on Campus Wednesday

Ms. Myrna Gregory has worked in the field of sports and recreation ministry, including Lifeway Christian Resources and Upward Sports.  As part of her responsibilities, she has worked in different areas of sports missions.

In 2005, she taught an Introduction to Sports Ministry course as an adjunct faculty member at Belhaven University.   In the area of volunteerism, she has served as a sports chaplain at the summer and the winter Olympics.

She most recently served in her 7th Olympic Games as a member of the International Sports Chaplains (http://ischaplains.org/About.html).   The purpose of the organization is “to communicate Christ’s love in the Olympic arena as they focus on sharing, loving, telling, and showing Jesus to the people assembled at the Olympic Games”.

On next week as the Sochi Olympics 2014 draw to a close, Myrna will be sharing some of her experiences from the Sochi Olympics at the new Football and Sports Administration Building (Old Red Cross Building) on Riverside Drive.

  • Thursday, Feb. 27th at 11 a.m.

The Sports Administration Department is glad to have this unique opportunity to have Myrna to speak to our students as it is part of their vision to expand sports administration reach in the $400 billion dollar a year global sports industry through sports ministry opportunities, sports missions and the Olympic experience.
