What Happens When You Get out of Your Comfort Zone and Serve Other People – An Interview with Former UK Baseball Coach Keith Madison

December 14, 2017 by Alton Webb

After retiring from a successful career coaching baseball at the University of Kentucky, Coach Keith Madison found himself at a loss when he was asked what he was going to do next.  In this interview, Coach Madison shares with us how a gravel road and big hands taught him a valuable truth about God, the five words players say that mean the most to him, and how God prepared him for work in the Dominican Republic.

Perhaps what’s most important is that Coach Madison shares how he stays close to God.
