Steve Prohm tries to integrate his faith in Jesus Christ into every aspect of his life, including his job as head coach of the Murray State men’s basketball team. Last year, the team studied the book of Nehemiah, and was inspired by the perseverance of God’s people as they rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. The Israelites battled through fatigue, discouragement and fierce opposition and successfully completed the work.
The theme for the Murray State team last year was “Stay on the wall. Do not be distracted. There is important work to be done.” The Racers wore practice T-shirts with the message—“Stay on the Wall”. Their inspiration led to a successful season, as they won the OVC championship and advanced to the NCAA tournament.
Your church has important work to do. Therefore, do not be distracted. Stay on the wall and get the job done!
