Coach Will is excited to begin her first year of coaching at Spurgeon College. Coach Will played four years at Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Intercultural Studies with a focus on teaching English as a Second Language. A recent graduate of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with her Master’s Degree in Theological Studies, Coach Will now joins our athletic department as they strive to build the Kingdom through athletics. “In recent years, God has given me a passion for discipling and training young women and I believe soccer is an incredible opportunity to do just that. I look forward to coaching and encouraging this team of ladies as we enjoy the sport of soccer. God has used soccer in my own life to teach me and transform me, and I am excited for the opportunity to help build a program that incorporates the competitive sport of soccer, and each player’s relationship with Jesus Christ.” Coach Will is looking for student athletes who are leaders, coachable, competitive, and most importantly who love Jesus and desire to serve and glorify Him.
