Our first Impact Weekend took place in April 2021 in Miami, Florida! We started off the trip at Hard Rock Stadium, where we received a tour and met with members of the Miami Dolphins organization. They shared about their faith and career and gave great advice on living out their faith in the sport industry.
Our second day was full of tours, guest speakers, and networking! We started off the day at FIU football, where we toured the facility, ate Miami pastries, and listened to his faith journey. We then headed north to Boca Raton to see Florida Atlantic University's men's basketball facilities and hear from past USG mission trip member and present Director of Men's Basketball with the Owls, Ben Gonzalez. The day then ended at the Marlin's game, where they defeated the Giants in extra innings.
Day three was our last day in Miami, and we started off with breakfast on South Beach. We then hit the beach to evangelize to those enjoying the beautiful day. We engaged in many conversations about Jesus and planted seeds in their hearts. Our group ended the trip with some time at the airport, eating dinner, and saying our goodbyes.
"I really grew this weekend spiritually and professionally through everyone on the team and we met throughout the weekend. Everything we did, saw, and experienced helped me grow more than I ever thought I could in one weekend. I'm so thankful to be a part of the USG family!"- Kevin McNamara, Accounts Payable Clerk with the San Diego Padres
