Team 413 Video - A Worthwhile Ministry!

Buzz this
As I've noted before, Fred and I have been involved with a ministry called Team 413.  The  ministry was founded by Chris Gillespie in 2003 (at right with his new puppy, Willie!).  Its mission is to spread the gospel to elite athletes, and those who follow them.  Their primary means of outreach are Team 413 shirts.  On the back of each shirt is Philippians 4:13: "I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me."  This verse has been an encouragement to me as well as others as we're out there in those last miles of innumerable marathons!  It is a conversation starter for believers and non-believers alike cheering on the marathoners on the sidelines!

A gentleman named Mark Starner has a ministry called Good News Films; he just produced a very neat video highlighting this wonderful ministry.  Please take a look (and look for Fred and me with Chris!):

I am honored to be a Team 413 Ambassador!

They are currently in the middle of a fundraising campaign called Faith on the Run Tour 2010. I would encourage you to donate to this wonderful ministry; you can do so here.

Chris just completed his first book, 'Gracerunner - Faith on the Run.'  I will be reviewing it soon (I promise, Chris!); stayed tuned for that!  If you can't wait, and would like to order your copy, you can email Chris at

If you are interested in ordering a Team 413 shirt, you can email Chris' wife, Kiki, at  She will be happy to assist!

Please pray for this ministry as it continues to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8)!!
