Rick and Susie Maupin- Little Rock Arkansas
Rick and Susie Maupin were called to Missions out of Grace Evangelical Church in 2020. Rick serves and ministers to high school coaches at 4 schools as part of his FCA Central Arkansas organizational reach. Their vision is to reach the next generation by serving as conduits to the Gospel, encouraging disciples to make disciples so that the youth can be reached for Christ before they graduate. Rick says: “because most coaches have a huge influence on their student athletes—many an even greater influence than their parents—I would minister to them and assist them in ministering to their student athletes who would, ideally, reach their schools for Christ. This opportunity includes the privilege and joy to serve to and through our son, Brian, who coaches football at one of the schools I will be serving. To God be the glory. This is a vital work among influential Gospel gatekeepers to reach the next generation for Christ”
