Christians Can Win

Description

Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, helps us see that being a Christian and being successful are not mutually exclusive.

"Football is a profession that is judged by performance and results," says Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. “However, those things come and go so quickly that, as a coach, I have to base my career on something more."

Tony Dungy is admittedly a devout Christian and relies on his belief in God to strive for excellence.

"I think it's great to be able to show the world not only that African-American coaches can do it, but Christian coaches can do it in a way that, you know, we can still win. I want to show people that being a Christian and being successful are not mutually exclusive. When people ask me, ‘How do you stay so calm on the sideline?’ I have to tell them it is Christian maturity and Christ working in me. It’s not natural. It didn't happen overnight. It was a process. I know how powerful God’s spirit is. I know He can change people. And I know that He will do that if we allow Him to. A personal relationship is the only way I've found true peace, joy and forgiveness."
