With summer wrapped up and fall beginning to find its rhythm, it can only mean one thing: recruiting season is upon us! This week, our team is recruiting throughout the great state of Arkansas. Cue excitement for fall weather, rolling hills, and leaves beginning to change color.

We kicked off the week with an inaugural spikeball tournament in Wilson Park! The competition was stiff; we had seasoned players and new inductees into the sport battling for a brand new spikeball set.

Guys Playing Spikeball

After a double elimination bracket and some tough rounds, we finally awarded not one but FOUR spikeball sets to the top two teams! Check out top two teams cheesin’ with their prizes – congratulations guys, y’all earned it!

We also gave away one more set to the winner of our social media competition, David Berryhill! Check out his winning instavid that uses both #pcapply and #ineedspikeball!

We will be recruiting at University of Arkansas until Wednesday, in addition to John Brown University on Tuesday, Arkansas State on Wednesday, University of Central Arkansas on Thursday, and finally Ouachita Baptist on Friday! Bring your friends and stop by our booth for more info on how you can have the best summer of your life at Pine Cove.

Finally, I wanted to encourage you guys with something the Lord has been teaching me this week, which stems from a quote from Elisabeth Elliot. She says, “Does the question of liberty and liberation mean casting off all restrictions? Does it mean doing what we feel like doing and not doing what we don’t? It means discipline. It means doing the thing we were meant for.”

With our culture continuing to tell us that freedom and liberty mean casting off anything that restricts us, take comfort in the fact that God has given us true freedom not in restrictions but in discipline, for He is the one that summons us to true freedom. Wherever you are, run wholeheartedly after Him and find the treasure that comes from drinking deep from His word regularly. Discipline does not equal law, discipline leads us to be able to find the full freedom from the one that designed us!

Stay tuned for more from Arkansas, and don’t forget to tell your friends to #applypc!
