#12. Trey Burton, Chicago Bears tight end
Burton played for the Super Bowl champion Eagles last year and threw a touchdown pass in the big game. He was also one of the teammates at pool side while Marcus Johnson was baptized. He said of those fellow believers, “We have a bunch of guys whose hearts truly want to see a change, not only in the locker room but big picture would be the city of Philadelphia. The need for Jesus here is huge and we’re just trying to do our part.”
That group made fellowship part of their weekly schedule.
“Monday Night is our couples Bible Study. Thursday night at the team facility, we’ll do our weekly team Bible study. That’s been really fruitful,” said Burton. “Saturday before meetings we’ll have another chapel, and depending on what city it is in, we’ll try to get a speaker in. After our meeting Saturday Night, that’s really our discipleship time. We go into one of the guy’s hotel rooms and we have a pointed scripture that we’re reading for the week. That’s really where we’ve seen the most growth. We just have a bunch of guys saying yes to what the Lord is calling us to do and this season we’re in.”
