"Chapels are a great spiritual input in my life especially since I miss church so much.
It is great to be refreshed by the word of God as well as have a place where my teammates
can connect and know that someone outside the team cares about them."
James Reimer, San Jose Sharks
"I believe the free services HMI has provided to ECHL member teams has been extremely beneficial to those clubs
who have participated. Many of our coaches and players face various individual and collective challenges during
the hockey season. We have found that the HMI Chapel Program provides many benefits, including the immediate access
to chaplains that provide a wide range of emotional and spiritual support to players, coaches and their families."
Brian McKenna, Commissioner of the ECHL
"Hockey Ministries has really helped me become closer with God. It's very hard to make it to
church regularly being away from home and playing junior hockey with our schedule. I would definitely
recommend every hockey player who has an opportunity to experience this to give it at least one shot."
Alex Carpenter, WCHA
