Ministry Testimonies

University of Alabama Campus Ministry

“Jeremiah Castille is probably the single most influential man I have ever met, as far as someone who has challenged, inspired and helped to mold and shape me into a man of God.  His foundation has reached out to many on the campus of the University of Alabama, both athletes and common students, in order to show them the love and power that faith in Christ brings.  Mr. Castille is someone whom I am eternally grateful to God in introducing me to and allowing me to build a relationship with.  I only wish I had met him much earlier in my life.”

“God brought Jeremiah Castille into my life when I was a law student at the University of Alabama.  God allowed me, through Coach Castille, to receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of the power and speaking in tongues.  Coach Castille taught me about the necessity of praising God and how to praise God through dancing, clapping, shouting, singing and other biblical ways of praise.  Through Coach Castille, the Lord birthed in me a ministry to help people get saved and discipleship that is the focus of my life as I live as an attorney in Opp, Alabama.  I love Coach Castille and appreciate the individual time he has invested in me to see fruit produced for the Kingdom of God.  I can’t think of anybody else that has impacted my life more for Jesus.  He and his wife Jean have had me and my two brothers Walter and Allen and other young men into their home for Bible study, prayer and fellowship on several occasions and Coach Castille has lead retreats that have impacted our lives tremendously.  Coach Castille has spent hours of his time one-on-one teaching me the Word of God.  The Lord continues to use Coach Castille in my life as I am blessed to be able to call him and meet him from time to time.  Coach Castille serves a Spiritual Father to me to this day and Lord-willing will continue to be one in the days ahead.“

“Everyone knows of Jeremiah Castille, the former All-American, Alabama Legend and NFL football player. But, I have come to know Jeremiah Castille personally and I know him as a true man of God. I believe that the Lord has done a tremendous work in his life, his family’s life and in the life’s of many of the children that he seeks to help. He ‘walks the faithful walk’ and helps others do the same. He is a true leader and I believe that he sets the example by seeking the Lord and HIS will thru the Jeremiah Castille Foundation.  The Jeremiah Castille Foundation is something that I believe in and have worked many hours in trying to help build. I have seen firsthand the need of many children and have seen Jeremiah Castile personally fill that material, mental, emotional and spiritual need. One example was in October 2008, Jeremiah spoke to about 430 children in an assembly at JD Davis Elementary School in Columbus, GA. Many of these children are in broken homes. Jeremiah mentored to them and encouraged them greatly. Further, his Foundation gave each child a backpack and school supplies. This meant a lot to the children and their parents as many could not afford them otherwise.  Because of my aforementioned thoughts, it is my intent to work towards helping to build the Jeremiah Castille Foundation for the rest of my life. I believe in its purpose, its goals and most of all, Jeremiah Castille.”

“I have had the honor and privilege of working closely with the Jeremiah Castille Foundation for more than a year. In that time, I have found Jeremiah Castille and those working with him to be passionate and uniquely qualified to accomplish their mission to reach at risk youth. Their unwavering commitment to excellence and the cries of their hearts have made it easy for me to join them as a kindred heart and by sharing resources to succeed.”
