I Am a Real McCoy

I AM A REAL MCCOY. Being a Real McCoy is more than going to a big city, enjoying the cold weather, and seeing the leaves change color. Even though that is an amazing perk, being a Real McCoy is more than just a getaway or label.

During a camp service in Kerrville, Texas, my friend Isabella Reynolds was speaking about Sheaves for Christ (SFC) and how she became a Real McCoy. Her testimony inspired me to do the same for the kingdom of God—to raise money for Sheaves for Christ and reach those I don’t have the ability to reach. It was a challenging task for me but not impossible. I got started as soon as I returned home and asked my pastor about his thoughts of my passion to give to SFC. I wasn’t sure if I would be able … Read More »

I rolled out of bed at 5:40 a.m., rubbing my blurry eyes, and thinking about…well, honestly, the first thought is always the snooze button.  But once that internal battle was over, I pondered the idea of sacred softball.

Do you know that of those 12 teams, only 3 were UPCI church teams? The other 9 were primarily composed of guys that played on the city leagues in the surrounding areas.  Guys who brought their … Read More »


The Real McCoy Weekend

20th November

Before I actually went on this trip I had no idea how incredible the Real McCoy weekend would be. Getting beat at demolition ball AND laser tag by the GYD executives was only part of this incredible weekend. I had the opportunity to meet nine other young people who know what fundraising is all about. Seeing Brother Mann, Brother Williams, and Brother Francis, along with their families, outside of a church setting was truly an interesting yet amazing experience. I had the chance to see that although they may be the head of the youth department for the UPCI, they know how to have fun and are “down-to-earth” individuals who inspire you. One of the highlights of this trip for me was seeing what Sheaves for Christ really does. We had the opportunity to meet up with Brother … Read More »
