Staff Spotlight: Lauren Cleope

I participated in the Chicago Eagles Summer Academy in 2014. God rocked my world that summer and I immediately knew this is where the Lord was calling me into ministry. In 2016, I moved to West Chicago to join the Eagles residency program. That year launched me into sports ministry head on and full throttle forward. I had found a place where Jesus and soccer met. I During the year, I coach our U19 girls team, which some of the girls I’ve been with for the last four seasons now! And during the summer, I am a part of the Summer Academy staff. I found God in college soccer and have seen the impact He has made on my life during that time and I just love all our college players that participate each summer. What a joy to walk in faith with them. I have seen the value in building relationships and discipleship for His Kingdom. You can also find me snapping photos and capturing all the fun and sweet Eagles memories along the way.
