Steve Sanders spoke at Zach Dorazio's 1st Annual sports camp on July 20, 2016. Steve spoke on the importance of developing a relationship with Christ at an early age, Character Matters and Education First. The youth there were between the ages of 6 to 14yrs old. The event was held  at Cuyahoga Hts. High School, where Zach is an alumni and FCA grad. It is good to see one of our own continue to build into the next generation.
