I Am a Real McCoy

Posted by Editors Choice in Inspirational, Real McCoys, Sheaves for Christ. Comments Off on I Am a Real McCoy

13th January

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.

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.
