Twins Faith Night a Hit

Twins Faith Night a Hit


Despite losing Saturday, Twins players still participated and praised God at Faith Night.

An estimated crowd of 4,500 fans stayed at Target Field after the Twins 4-1 loss to the Houston Astros to hear testimonies from Brian Dozier, Eduardo Escobar, Blaine Boyer, Kyle Gibson and Torii Hunter.

The event was presented by Praise FM and hosted by the station’s executive director, David McIver, who also works with the baseball chapel serving the Twins. UNITE Twin Cities led worship music, including a stirring version of Amazing Grace that featured Dozier on guitar.

“This was a great night of celebration, worship, inspiration, challenge and unity,” Minnesota FCA Director Glenn Martin said. “I am thankful to David McIver, Praise FM, the Minnesota Twins and those players who spoke for making Faith Night possible.”


The players shared their faith stories, including how God has led them to this point in their lives.

Their stories were different.

Escobar said he’s come to faith in Christ within the last year, thanks to the support of his wife, teammates and pastor Luis Mendez of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis.

The event ended about 11 p.m.

Martin walked away inspired and impressed.

“Because of their profound influence, it is critical that through FCA we continue to impact the lives of coaches and athletes,” he said. “If anyone doubts whether it's important to invest in coaches and athletes, they only need to look it what happened (at Faith Night).

“While Faith Night was a big event drawing thousands of people to listen to professional athletes, coaches and athletes in middle schools, high schools, and colleges and universities have a similar influence and impact, on a smaller scale but just as significant.”

I wish I could have been there to hear the testimonies of the Twins players. I was wondering if there was a video or taping of it? I would love to be able to see it.

Kudos to Praise FM, FCA, the Twins -- and special accolades to David McIver -- for bringing "Faith Night" to Target Field! The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few...
