Olympics, Performance, And Rest

June 10, 2012

Senior leaders Eric and Candace Johnson interview Ryan and Sara Hall- professional runners with extreme passion for sports and for God's Kingdom. When Ryan was 13, the Lord told him "I've given you a gift to run with the best in the world but also to help others around you". Sara felt called to the mission field from a young age and feels like God has wired her to run. She believes running can be a ministry; we don't need to separate secular from sacred. They also shared their hearts about perseverance, identity and sonship within a career that is all about performance. Success is measured by being faithful with what you've been given, not how well you performed.

Ryan & Sara Hall

Husband and wife, Ryan and Sara Hall, are two of America's premier distance runners. Both were California high school superstars and All-Americans at Stanford University (where they met). Ryan has posted the best-ever American times in the Half-Marathon and Marathon and has represented the U.S. in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Sara has won several premier road races, including the Drake Relays Grand Blue Mile and the U.S. National Road Mile Championships. She has been a two-time world team member for the U.S. at the World Indoor Track and Field Championships. Guided by their faith, and seeking a way to use their athletic success in service of others, Ryan and Sara co-founded The Hall Steps Foundation in the fall of 2009, in order to fight poverty through better health.
