Keepers of the Flame: Men's archery senior Hunter Jacobs
March 28, 2016 | Lynchburg, Va.
Hunter Jacobs, a senior on Liberty University's archery team, realizes how essential keeping God in the center of his life — and the focal point of his sport — is to success in competition as well as the classroom and workplace.
He applies his favorite scripture verse, found in John 14:12 — "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father" — to his daily walk with Christ.
"Any talented player can do great things, but if they choose not to follow Christ, they're not going to do anything but just the average," Jacobs said. "They can do greater things if they choose to follow Christ's path."
