College ‘Dunk team’ has Eaves, FBC youth flying high
Athletes from Liberty University bounced off trampolines to hang from the net, somersaulted 15 feet up in the air and wowed a crowd of about 300 in the church’s student gym Wednesday, Oct. 4.
The SOAR [Soul’d Out And Ready] Dunk team uses trampolines to do acrobatic maneuvers as part of a traveling Christian youth ministry, dazzling crowds of all ages — and the crowd of children and teens at FBC obviously were amazed.
After the team performed for about 30 minutes, they asked for volunteers.
“It was electrifying,” said Marcus Eaves, FBC student pastor. “I was amazed that a human being can get that high in the air. To see people dunk and do incredible tricks is pretty amazing, especially when you see it in person. It makes you want to try it.”
“I thought it was a fantastic thing that the church was able to bring them here. It was awesone,” said John Scavone, a home-schooled freshman.
