Coleman Maxwell

My Name is Coleman Maxwell. I currently reside in Fort Worth, Texas with my beautiful wife of three years, Megan Maxwell. She is a neonatal nurse here in Fort Worth. I am the assistant Life and Character coach for TCU athletics. I was hired in September of 2014 and it has been great.

Before TCU, I was the assistant chaplain for Texas Tech’s football program from 2010-2012. During that time period, I grew exponentially passionate about seeing athletes communicating, living, and competing with the purpose of giving God the glory.

We ended up moving to Fort Worth for a couple of core reasons. My wife’s parents are located in the DFW area and the school scenario was better for my family financially. I had no idea that I’d have a solid opportunity to serve with FCA here in the DFW area. One of TCU’s co-offensive coordinators (Sonny Cumbie), who I was on staff with at Texas Tech, ended up getting hired at TCU about 6 months after I had moved up here. We had a good relationship at Texas Tech and he knew I was up here in Fort Worth going to seminary. He ended up mentioning my name to Chauncey Franks, Chauncey and I connected, and here we are now serving together and excited about what God is doing amongst the athletes here at TCU.

I look forward to the many relationships built with coaches, athletes, and families here in Fort Worth, Texas.

Natalie Mayo

My name is Natalie Mayo and I am originally from Edmond, Oklahoma. I grew up having a love for all sports and tried to play as many as possible. I played soccer at John Brown University and majored in Marketing, but my minor in Ministry is where I felt the Lord leading me after college. I moved to Fort Worth Texas to be close to family after college and was able to be a goalkeeper coach for a club team of kids. The Lord placed it on my heart after being in Texas for a few years to pursue vocational ministry. I applied and was accepted into the Watermark Residency Program. I have grown deeper in my love for Christ and so thankful for the opportunity to learn His Word and how I can apply it in ministry. My dream job has come true and I have the honor of discipling athletes to bring glory to God. I am so excited to see God move in incredible ways.
