Bill Jenkins ~ Area Representative
I was the kid that couldn’t find a place to fit in, until I was introduced to running. Then I became the athlete that thought winning on the track was the source of my significance. As I continued my walk into darkness I sought meaning in many things, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to the True Light of the world that my real significance was realized. There needs to be a bridge for kids like I was, a bridge out of the darkness, FCA is such a bridge.
FCA leads students out of the darkness that permeates our school system , into the Light that brings true meaning.
I grew up in Tampa, went to college at The University of Alabama on a track scholarship and had all the promise in the world, but addiction left me bereft of body, spirit and mind. Only by the Grace of God was I able to find my way out of that very dark place and by His Faithfulness have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of body, spirit and mind.Bodily,3 years ago I was blessed with the opportunity to donate a kidney for my mother, spiritually, my Savior now lives in my heart in a way that is true miraculous, and mind,..well that depends who you ask but I had the good sense to hear God’s still small voice as he called me into the ministry of FCA and I count it an honor to be home, on the mission field which is the Hillsborough County school system.
Proverbs 18:22 says “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” My ‘good thing” Tami and I have been married since 2014 and I surely see the favor He has granted me, with Tami and I walking hand in hand through the life the Lord provides for us.
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the Glory.
