Founder, Jeremiah Castille

"Jeremiah Castille is probably the single most influential man I have ever met, as far as someone who has challenged, inspired and helped to mold and shape me into a man of God. His foundation has reached out to many on the campus of the University of Alabama, both athletes and common students, in order to show them the love and power that faith in Christ brings. Mr. Castille is someone whom I am eternally grateful to God in introducing me to and allowing me to build a relationship with.
"God brought Jeremiah Castille into my life when I was a law student at the University of Alabama. God allowed me, through Coach Castille, to receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of the power and speaking in tongues. Coach Castille taught me about the necessity of praising God and how to praise God through dancing, clapping, shouting, singing and other biblical ways of praise. Through Coach Castille, the Lord birthed in me a ministry to help people get saved and discipleship that is the focus of my life as I live as an attorney in Opp, Alabama. I love Coach Castille and appreciate the individual time he has invested in me to see fruit produced for the Kingdom of God. I can't think of anybody else that has impacted my life more for Jesus. He and his wife Jean have had me and my two brothers Walter and Allen and other young men into their home for Bible study, prayer and fellowship on several occasions and Coach Castille has lead retreats that have impacted our lives tremendously. Coach Castille has spent hours of his time one-on-one teaching me the Word of God. The Lord continues to use Coach Castille in my life as I am blessed to be able to call him and meet him from time to time. Coach Castille serves a Spiritual Father to me to this day and Lord-willing will continue to be one in the days ahead."
But, I have come to know Jeremiah Castille personally and I know him as a true man of God. I believe that the Lord has done a tremendous work in his life, his family's life and in the life's of many of the children that he seeks to help. He 'walks the faithful walk' and helps others do the same. He is a true leader and I believe that he sets the example by seeking the Lord and HIS will thru the Jeremiah Castille Foundation. The Jeremiah Castille Foundation is something that I believe in and have worked many hours in trying to help build. I have seen firsthand the need of many children and have seen Jeremiah Castile personally fill that material, mental, emotional and spiritual need. One example was in October 2008, Jeremiah spoke to about 430 children in an assembly at JD Davis Elementary School in Columbus, GA. Many of these children are in broken homes. Jeremiah mentored to them and encouraged them greatly. Further, his Foundation gave each child a backpack and school supplies. This meant a lot to the children and their parents as many could not afford them otherwise. Because of my aforementioned thoughts, it is my intent to work towards helping to build the Jeremiah Castille Foundation for the rest of my life. I believe in its purpose, its goals and most of all, Jeremiah Castille."
In that time, I have found Jeremiah Castille and those working with him to be passionate and uniquely qualified to accomplish their mission to reach at risk youth.

Faith before Football: Jean Castille and her husband minister to a growing circle of family and friends [cached]

Founder, Jeremiah Castille

Jean's family with husband, Jeremiah, extends beyond their six children to include friends and mentees who have shared their home and their hospitality over the years.
A new friend helped her develop an even deeper connection to God?-?Jeremiah Castille, then a high school senior planning to head to the University of Alabama to play football.
"Jeremiah came along and was able to encourage me in my walk with the Lord," Jean says.
That commitment is a foundation of the partnership Castille has with her husband. The summer after the Bible conference?-?and two weeks before Jeremiah began football camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?-?the couple married.
While Jeremiah was busy with his football career, Jean was busy raising a family.
Castille's children attended Briarwood Christian School in Birmingham, where Jeremiah coached track and football, but off and on over 12 years she home-schooled each of them. "I felt like it was important for each of our kids to spend time with me," she says, noting that in the 1980s it was still an unusual choice to homeschool.
Raising six children was a tough task, but the Castille sons and daughters attest to their mother's strength. Son Simeon, who also played in the NFL, jokes that he was the worst of his mother's children.
"On average she would have to spank me three times per day," he says.
"(Jeremiah) knew early on that there was a call in his life," Jean says.
The Castilles' ministry began to grow organically, with weekly Bible studies in their home, marriage counseling sessions with friends, mentoring at-risk teenagers, who Jeremiah often met while coaching youth sports teams.
Often, Jeremiah would invite a young man to stay at their home, removing him from the kind of tough situation in which he himself had grown up.
Jeremiah is also chaplain for the University of Alabama's football team.
"Tennis has been a great way for Jeremiah and me to bond together," she says.
Making their marriage a priority is important for the Castilles. "We got married with the intent of being married forever," she says.
"Jeremiah and I love people," she says.

Founder, Jeremiah Castille

ALEXANDRIA - Former University of Alabama football player Jeremiah Castille came to this community's high school Wednesday to recognize someone who's risen above adversity, as he did in his childhood.
He found that person in 14-year-old 8th grader Grace Gill.
Castille awarded Gill a $1,000 scholarship to the college of her choice on Wednesday after delivering a motivational speech to the high and elementary school student body.
Though her mother and father and teachers have known for weeks that Castille was coming, the award was a surprise to Gill, and came after a year of tribulation for the girl and her family.
Castille did that, he said Wednesday, because of the discipline and willpower that came from his faith in God.
"The reason I'm here today is, we're going to recognize someone who's had some adversity in their life," he said. "She made it into a stepping stone."
Castille called for Grace.

CULLMAN - Last Saturday at Heritage ... [cached]

CULLMAN - Last Saturday at Heritage Park, Jeremiah Castille led the second day of his annual Character Camp. Castille, who has been the chaplain of the University of Alabama's football team for 14 years, infuses the football camp that he runs with an emphasis on having quality character and virtue.

However, Castille Character Camp is not Vacation Bible School with footballs. Jeremiah Castille pointed out that all the coaches for the camp played or are playing college football, except Gold Medal Olympian Willie Smith, who coached agility at the camp.
On Friday, the campers had a day of conditioning, and on Saturday they focused more on football skills and techniques. "I was impressed by how hard they ran," said Castille about the campers on Friday. "Because in the past we've had campers who don't try as hard."
Great group for Castille Character Camp 2015 @ Heritage Park in Cullman, AL.

A former player for the University of Alabama and Paul "Bear" Bryant, camp leader Jeremiah Castille is well qualified to deliver the orations to campers.
Usually, Castille runs his Character Camp throughout the south, but this summer, only camps in Cullman and Decatur were scheduled. Although he said he wished there were more campers this year, Castille was proud of the effort the campers demonstrated when performing the various activities.
"I think a reason for the effort is that we have repeat campers," Castille said. "They know kind of what level we're expecting. Castille was also careful to emphasize the quality of the coaches that were helping with the camp. "You're not going to find better quality anywhere," he said.

Former high school and University of Alabama football teammate Jeremiah Castille joked about his old college roommate. The two played for legendary University of Alabama Coach Bear Bryant.
"We called him the Tasmanian Devil," Castille said. "Coach Bryant used to hold him out of practice because he was hurting all of our players."
Castille even told stories of Lowe crying because he couldn't practice.
"The whole time I was just wishing I wouldn't have to practice," Castille said.
"God had to make you 5-foot-7," Castille said.
