The History And Purpose Of Christian Families Today

www.christianfamiliestoday.org [cached]

For three years Greg Brezina was a successful linebacker with the Atlanta Falcons, but at home he was a failure.
Two weeks after reaching rock bottom in his marriage, Greg received Christ at a NFL Chapel Service, and God began restoring his relationship with his wife, Connie. As a result of their restoration process, the Brezinas spent the next nine off-seasons of Greg's football career serving families, even bringing some of them into their home to help them understand how families are to function biblically. Upon retiring from pro football in 1980, Greg and Connie founded Christian Families Today (CFT), an interdenominational non-profit organization. Greg Brezina's Testimony Become a Ministry Partner

For twelve seasons Greg Brezina was a linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons.
Around the National Football league he was known for his aggressiveness. He made the Pro Bowl in 1970 and in 1978 was named the Falcons' Most Valuable Player. However, off the field his personal life was in trouble. He had no interest in God. He had a drinking problem and he and his wife Connie were close to divorce. But in 1971, prior to a game with the then Los Angeles Rams, Greg made a commitment of his life to Christ.

Greg Brezina, a linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons from 1968-79, coordinates the football clinics and has been involved with the Week of champions since the beginning.
Brezina says the clinics average about 60 kids, ages 8-13, with most falling in the 10- to 12-year-old range. "The athlete is taught one of two things," Brezina said. Brezina said the goal is to teach the kids to be champions physically, psychologically and spiritually. He said they hope to teach them to take care of their bodies and learn to eat right, to stay in shape physically. Psychologically, the kids are encouraged to do well in school and develop their minds. And spiritually, the kids are taught to draw inner strength from their faith in God. If a child learns those things, Brezina said, what happens on the field will come naturally. Brezina said, that years from now, he hopes these kids will remember what the coaches tried to impart on them in the coming week. "I learned how to be a champion physically, psychologically and spiritually," Brezina said. "If (one of these kids) says that 20 years from now, we've been successful." Part of what makes the clinics work is that they are taught by current and former athletes and the kids recognize that these coaches have been where they dream of being. "This is the only clinic I know about in the country that has the caliber of coaches that we have," Brezina said.
