One of the most important elements of the OKC Ambassadors program is the accountability partnership.
During the summer, each player is partnered up with another player in an attempt to hold each other accountable in their daily walk with Christ. Each player is encouraged to challenge their partner with reading the Bible each day, keeping relationships in check, and making sure that they are always a great Ambassador for Christ everywhere they go.
This is probably has the most impact in how this one single summer changes the lives of these players..
Think about it… these baseball players see each other every single day for two straight months. They get to know each other really well. They know their strengths and they know their struggles. This is where the brotherhood really begins to develop inside of our ministry. This is why we have so many Ambassadors who are still close to their brothers, even 10 years down the road.
Proverbs 27:17 – “Iron sharpens iron, just as one man sharpens another.”
This is exactly what we are doing here. We are sharpening each other in a semi-contained environment, so that when we send our Ambassadors out into the world after our summer is over, they are prepared and equipped to spread the Gospel!
It is hard to describe the closeness of a brother when you are in the darkest time in your life or the most confusing time in your life and you have someone standing right there with you helping you go through the deep valley. That is what these accountability partners are designed to do.
Please join me in praying for our 2018 OKC Ambassadors team. We are sorting through a lot of player applications and we are seeking God’s will in putting our roster together for this year. Please pray that even now God would begin to prepare the hearts of the young men who are going to be used to spread the Gospel around the world during the summer of 2018.
