Letter from the Director

Dear Grace Brethren Youth Football Families,

We hope and pray this communication finds you and your loved ones well. If you are in a challenging time right now, please let us know what's going on by replying to this email. We will be glad to pray for you and will do our best to support you!

We wanted to reach out to encourage you and inform you about our chapter’s plans. Many of you have made GBYF your home because of our culture of faith, family, and football. At the center of this culture is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and our desire to bring Him glory in all we do. We intentionally use this program for the pursuit of excellence in sport, character building, and a platform for evangelism! As a chapter, we desire to serve all of our stakeholders well and accomplish our purpose of bringing glory to God! 

We consider it an honor and privilege to be part of this community and serve together with you. Together we have created a positive and developmental experience for our athletes, and a community servant program. Your participation in encouraging, cheering, supporting, sponsoring, volunteering, leading, following, donating, and coaching has made this league, our league, what it is today. We are so thankful for all of you, and consider you partners in this good endeavor. Please be encouraged, your participation has made this a life changing experience for some and incredibly meaningful for so many. 

While this pandemic and crisis has brought in a lot of hardship worldwide and locally, it has also brought new opportunities. We hope you are finding ways to use these opportunities for good. We believe God wants us to use these opportunities to strengthen our faith and relationship with Christ, our families, and our commitment to church. I’m thankful for the many of you who are on this path and leading through this crisis. We have a desire to support any of you who have questions about God, need help connecting with a church, or need assistance with family devotional material. If you need help in these areas or others, please contact Pastor Tim Howard at [email protected] or me directly at [email protected] . We would love to hear from you and will assist you in any way we can. 

Regarding football, knowing that everything could change at any time, we along with our league, the Gold Coast Youth Football League  (GCYFL), plan on playing this football season as scheduled. Our summer G-Football Camps are scheduled the first two weeks in July and GBYF football and cheer practice will start soon after in mid July. If anything changes, we will let you know as we know. 

Please connect with our league on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates and information.  We send this message with love, respect, and faith.  

God’s Favor, 

Josh Henderson
GBYF Director
