At Fellowship Christian School, Reaching is our mandate...Serving is our objective.
We firmly believe that everything we do on the field of play should honor our Savior Jesus Christ. We have no greater responsibility than to lead our student-athletes into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, thus equipping them to be great witnesses to the rest of the world.
Fellowship Christian School's philosophy of coaching is grounded in three main principles:
First, the Christian coach views athletics as a ministry. The Christian coach is sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and prays for their athletes to develop a deeper desire for the things of Christ. The Christian coach also understands the great opportunity for active ministry as opponents, fans and community are watching to see if there is a difference in the Christian athlete. Christian coaches are to be used for God’s work in the lives of the athletes of whom they have been entrusted. They are ambassadors for Christ in our athletic community.
Second, the Christian coach views athletics as an arena for teaching the principles of God’s Word. Athletes are confronted with many types of situations that run parallel to life situations. These situations become perfect opportunities for teaching biblical principles. It is the job of the Christian coach to biblically direct athletes to build Christ–like character qualities and to encourage the athletes to express these qualities openly through the medium of athletics. The Christian coach is to primarily build eternal values in our athletes and, therefore, need to stress attitudes and actions in relation to God’s Word. Athletics is a microcosm of life. Athletics is life in miniature and the Christian coach is the leader.
Finally, the Christian coach understands the importance of winning from God’s perspective. Coaches spend many hours thinking of ways to help their team win games, but the Christian coach anticipates winning a lot more than just games. The Christian coach understands that true victory only comes when the athletes please the Lord with their effort, attitudes and actions. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible. (1 Corinthians 9:25) Examples of victory to the Christian coach include athletes demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit during normal and stressful situations, seeing team members develop a deep desire for the things of Christ, or having an athlete share their faith with boldness to teammates and opponents. The Christian coach wants their athletes to desire to please the Lord rather than people. Whatsoever you do, do it with your whole heart as working for the Lord, not for men.(Colossians3:23) The Christian coach wants their athletes to catch the vision that our Lord attends every athletic event and is their primary audience. Coaches are stewards of the many athletes of which the families have entrusted us. The Christian coach has been divinely placed as an extension of the family. It is, therefore, important for the Christian coach to be sensitive to our athletes as it relates to family and church activities. Although there are consequences for certain absences or choices, the coach always handles situations with consistency and the best interest of the athlete in mind.

Years Teaching & Coaching: 18 years, third year at Fellowship
Alma Mater: Bachelor of Science, Children’s and Youth Ministry, Liberty University, 2009. Master’s, Secondary Education specializing in reading, Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, Ariz., 2013.
Contact Information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Favorite Bible Verse: Jeremiah 29:11
Church Attended: St. John United Methodist Church, Sandy Springs
Family: Married to Rudd Holt IV with a son, Rudd V and a daughter, Kassidy.
Awards, Accomplishments: Has coached softball for more than 16 years, including 14 years at the men’s, coed and youth levels from 1998-2011. Holt spent six years as a JV and varsity softball coach at two Virginia high schools, including Heritage High School in Lynchburg, Va., from 1995-98, and E.C. Glass High School in Lynchburg, Va., from 2001-03.
Coaching Philosophy: I'm just as competitive as the next and want to win in everything, but life happens and we need to know we have done our best. To achieve our best we need to learn to love it and enjoy what we are doing. As a coach, my goals are not only to teach the fundamentals of softball but to teach the fundamentals to help athletes get through life's challenges. If we always win and out do the next guy, what have we learned? As a coach I feel we can have a stronger faith and trust when we work hard to help our athletes achieve their goals and the team’s goals. A coach is a mentor, and as a Christian we are to build disciples for Christ. We can build our athletes to play to win, but we need to teach them to glorify our Heavenly Father. As a Christian we are like a flashlight. Without the batteries, the flashlight will not work. As a Christian we need two things to keep our light shining: prayer and study God's word. We need to go light the world. As an athlete/coach we have an advantage over others to mentor the world.
