"For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope"
When you look back at what God has done historically, you can build expectation about what He can do for you. When you see how He consistently blessed Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, you know that if He blessed a father, son and grandson, He will bless you, your children and your grandchildren, too. When you look back at how He delivered the children of Israel from the bondage of Pharaoh and brought them miraculously from their past into the full potential of their future, you recognize that He can destroy every shackle of sin and set you free from every bondage and addiction that binds you. And you can, with comfort, declare that whom the Son sets free is free indeed.
When you read about the manna and the water from a rock in the wilderness, about Jericho’s walls that came down with a shout, and how a giant was defeated with David’s stone, you can trust God enough to declare in faith believing, “Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.” When you read how Jesus Christ touched multitudes of the sick and healed them all and how He fed the masses with a sack lunch, you know that our God is full of power and able to provide more than you could ask, think or imagine.
Cornerstone Youth Sports (CYS) is a ministry outreach to all the youth of San Antonio. Our sole objective is to lead athletes and their families to a Saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. CYS leagues and teams provide a safe, fun, competitive and distinctly Christian environment where kids can learn about sports and Christ through mentoring and instruction.
CYS also provides a competitive and Christ-centered sports outlet for boys and girls ages 4 to 12 years old. We currently offer soccer, football, baseball, basketball and volleyball programs. Proverbs 22:6 states that we should, “train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”. Practices, games and related activities will exist in an environment that develops Christian character, personal success skills and athletic ability in each child. CYS looks forward to the opportunity to coach your child and encourage them to become all that God created them to be!
For no greater foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11 NIV
Everyone who competes in the game goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that doesn't last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 1 Corinthians 9:25 NIV
We offer many sports and camps for any athlete. When you play with us our aim is to impact not just the athlete, but the family as well.
CORNERSTONE YOUTH SPORTS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
Cornerstone Youth Sports Athletic Director
Alex was born and raised in Shreveport Louisiana. At the age of 20, Alex became ordained to minister, to which he put to use by returning to his alma mater, Calvary Baptist Church, as a football coach and part of their pastoral staff. In three short years, Alex graduated with a bachelors in Marketing from Louisiana State University of Shreveport. He then decided to pursue football. His love for football started in Highschool, when his head coach was Dough Pederson (the five-season head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles). Pederson became a mentor to Alex and even invited him to intern coach with the Eagles during their 2017-2018 season. He accepted and in that same year the Eagles went on to win the Super Bowl and becoming 2018 World Champions.
Alex has intertwined his experience with ministering and coaching together, believing that coaching football and mentoring high school players are one in the same. Lee moved his family (wife Brea, and daughters- Phoenix 4, and August 2) to San Antonio in August of 2018 and is now the Director of Cornerstone Youth Sports (CYS) as well as an offensive assistant coach on the varsity football team at CCS. While holding these positions he uses his influence to show the players that as they engage in a battle of sorts on the field at every game, that as they put their bodily comforts on the line by working out daily and showing up in order to become strong, that as they courageously confront their fears of losing or making a mistake, that as they learn to play their own significant part in a united struggle to overcome a common goal. He believes this also can show them that they’re not just developing skills to win a game, they are developing the skills needed to be successful in life. He focuses on his relationship with the players and leading by example. His goal is to create crowns and not trophies as not everyone he is coaching will be the next Patrick Mahomes, but almost 100% of them will be husbands and fathers.
