Former San Diego Christian College Goalkeeper Kaitlyn Ogle has agreed to join Surge International in order to serve the Lord overseas through soccer. Ogle will be in Austria to serve in a variety of ways, with the possibility of signing a professional soccer contract.
“SDCC soccer has taught me dedication, determination, hard work, and has given me the will to never give up and an unending passion for the game of soccer,” said Ogle. “I know that there are many challenges that lie ahead of me, but I also know that with God on my side, all things are possible.”
Ogle, a recent SDCC graduate from Chino Hills, was second in the GSAC in saves with 92, and led the conference in saves per game with 6.4 per game her senior season. Ogle also ranked 39th in the NAIA in saves per game. In addition, Ogle was a two-time GSAC Scholar-Athlete and an NAIA Scholar-Athlete.
Ogle added, “Surge International offers many opportunities to serve including: large scale evangelistic festivals in poor and war torn countries, homeless outreach, prison ministry, student ministry, refugee outreach, outreach to drug addicts, soccer relief work, church planting, youth soccer tournaments and clinics, school assemblies, and leading small group Bible studies.”
“I would love serving in all these ministries, but I feel I have a calling to work with the children, whether that is serving at youth soccer camps or school assemblies.”
SDCC Head Coach Carlos Calderson praised Ogle, stating, “Kaitlyn is exceptional, both on and off the field. She was a leader with her hard work, service to others, and overall attitude. She will be missed at SDCC, but I know the Lord will use her for His glory through Surge International.”
