“Inspired by Ephesians 4: 22-24 and Colossians 3: 8-15, I want to help these guys see how they can change their lives. The ‘put off’ and ‘put on’ from the Scripture noted above, is a visual of taking off an old worn-out garment and wearing it no longer and putting on or sinking into clothing; a new garment, to clothe oneself. Putting on a new man in Jesus.”
“We will custom fit individuals with lightly worn business attire that is appropriate for a professional business setting. The awardee’s name will be sewn into the coat. Properly fitted clothing helps with confidence and putting forth the correct image. Whenever available, shirts, ties, shoes, belts, or socks will be awarded as well.”
Paul McKeon is also the Founder of the Midlands Combine. On Saturday, May 1st at the SOAR Athletic Complex, up to 100 male and female competitors will put their speed, strength, endurance, and agility to the test. The Midlands Combine features 10 athletic events which serve as a customized Pro Day. Competitors will be able to register for the individual competition, which will require participation in all 10 events, or team competition, which enables teams of 2-4 to divide up the 10 events (the top score from each event will be recorded). Team competitors can compete in all 10 of the events or only 1 depending on their strategy and numbers. But, the ultimate purpose is to raise money and awareness of the life-changing work of Transitions Homeless Center and SOAR Columbia.
