Coach Freeze Inspires Oxonians at OUUMC Lenten Luncheon

As part of the Oxford University United Methodist Church (OUUMC) 2016 Lenten Luncheon Series, Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze spoke to a large crowd about “God’s plan for you.”

Freeze was introduced by Matt Luke, co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for the Ole Miss football program.

With over 200 Oxonians representing various churches in Oxford, Freeze told the crowd that he worries every day about giving his best in leading young men. He told them how God’s plan for his life and his family has been great, and it has been a joy.

“God has a specific plan for your life, live out where you are in Christ,” Freeze said.
