It has been an exciting year for our ministry, as we highlighted in our previous Mid-Year Member Recap blog. The Lord has impacted each of our Academy participants, staff, and members in unique ways, and it is exciting to see how their experiences with USG have impacted their careers and walks with Christ. One of our members, Antonio Borjas, has an exciting testimony from our New York City Impact Weekend this past April!
Antonio has been a member of Uncommon Sports Group since the spring of 2021. At the time, Antonio was working with the Fresno Grizzlies, a single-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, in a ticket sales role. This past April, we had an Impact Weekend in New York City, NY, and Antonio was an attendee with our group. During our Friday night social at Bowlero in Times Square, Antonio connected with one of our USG members in New York, Nina Petersen, who works for Madison Square Garden in sales. Antonio had a desire to work on the east coast and his connection with Nina opened an opportunity for Antonio to interview with Madison Square Garden for an Inside Sales position.
After leaving our New York City Impact Weekend, Antonio went through the interview process with Madison Square Garden and was offered the position. He later accepted the position and is currently living in New York City and working for MSG!
For our ministry, this is an exciting testament to the Lord’s faithfulness and that He is working through the various opportunities that we offer! Antonio’s attendance on the New York City Impact Weekend was the first domino to fall in the process of getting hired to work at Madison Square Garden. We are grateful to our faithful network, like Nina, who have taken the time to go to bat for our members who are job hunting. We are also thankful to members like Antonio who are faithful in participating in our fully funded opportunities, which our faithful God uses to open doors for spiritual and career growth.
