Meet Our Team
Tracy Hanson
Retired LPGA Professional

"I have joined the Faith & Sports Institute Team of Advocates because they are intentionally working to integrate faith and sport at a holistic level for athletes and sports leaders. FSI is on the cutting edge of creating space and resources that will change the landscape in providing spiritual training, along with emotional and mental care in the sports world where athletes and leaders are anemic and in crisis."

Rev. John H. Vaugn
Executive Pastor, Ebenezer Baptist Church

"[Through the FSI] I was excited to find others who are on a similar journey of exploration, learning, and teaching. For those who have been and/or are engaged as a player, administrator, or fan, we understand the ways that our connection to sports touches and moves us at some deep levels. There is a spiritual dimension to sports, and I am eager to join FSI on the journey to uncover the transformational possibilities it provides us."

"Sports ministers deeply and lovingly invested in my spiritual growth and their discipleship thereby enabled me to live and work in sports in a manner worthy of the gospel. Working with FSI is an exciting opportunity to pay that gift forward and equip more individuals for this vital work."
