We're excited to welcome Danielle Van Liere to the BVSA Family! Danielle is from Jacksonville FL, and played NCAA Division I collegiate soccer at the University of Florida (3 years) and Lipscomb University (1 year). She will graduate in May 2020 from Lipscomb, with a degree in Kinesiology.
Danielle gave her life to Christ her freshman year in college and she has never looked back. In the summer of 2019, going into her senior year at Lipscomb University, Danielle felt the call from the Lord to go into missions. A few days later, she was introduced to BVSA and knew this was the door the Lord had opened.
Danielle has been a soccer player all her life. She was not a believer going into college at the University of Florida, but through some teammates and on-campus ministries, she came to know the Lord at the end of her freshman year. She then spent the next year and a half at UF ministering to her teammates and staff whenever the opportunity came, sharing the light and love of Jesus to whoever would listen. She then transferred to Lipscomb University in January of 2019 for her senior year. Throughout her years at UF and Lipscomb, the Lord was stripping her identity of soccer and performance and molding her heart to love people and live for the higher purpose of the gospel. By the time she felt the call from the Lord to go into missions in the summer of 2019, she knew that this was what she was meant to do.
Soccer was God’s platform for calling Danielle out of darkness into the light. With BVSA, Danielle now gets to step into her passion for seeing lives transformed by Jesus through the platform of soccer! Danielle will be training in one of our Central American academies in 2020 before departure for her longterm destination. With her love of God, passion for the nations, and impressive soccer background, we know she will be a tremendous asset to any academy! To support Danielle, please see the links below.
