At Virtual Kicking, we are dedicated to developing the whole athlete.  Spiritual growth is a large component of the process.  Many of the top specialists in the NFL are very outspoken about their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.  Many of us are at different stages—some have never read the Bible, others have never been to church, while others practice their faith every day.  This is for everyone, no matter your place right now.  Through this platform, Virtual Kicking wants to provide resources/tools for anyone wanting to start or grow a relationship with Jesus Christ.
