An avid supporter of Seacoast Church, owner of Automaxx of the Carolinas, Johnny Dangerfield has now spent more than three years supporting the organization’s sports ministry.
A non-denominational church located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Seacoast Church supports a variety of projects and initiatives, including its own sports ministry. Backed by individuals such as Johnny Dangerfield, Seacoast Sports has continued to go from strength to strength in recent years.
“It’s part of what we call Christ-centered fitness,” explains Dangerfield of the church’s sports ministry. “In the wider sense, Seacoast exists to help people find God, grow their faith, discover their purpose, and make a difference.”
Seacoast’s gratitude toward Dangerfield is clear, especially surrounding his contributions to Seacoast Sports. “Johnny Dangerfield has been a godsend for the sports ministry here at the church,” explains Seacoast director Wes Koch.
Koch goes on to reveal that he first developed a relationship with Dangerfield through the church’s regular men’s hiking trips. “When I mentioned that I was the director for the sports ministry at Seacoast, Johnny was quick to respond,” he adds.
“I said to Wes, ‘If it has to do with God’s kingdom and athletics… I’m in!'” Dangerfield points out.
Indeed, true to his word, the Automaxx of the Carolinas owner and boss has become Seacoast Sports’ most trusted and active supporter, according to Koch, having now contributed for over three years. “Johnny consistently goes further than asked, and delivers more than we deserve,” says Koch of Dangerfield’s continued efforts. “What’s more, he does so with a true servant’s heart, asking for no personal recognition in return.”
The Seacoast director also points out that Dangerfield is quick to offer any assistance which the church requires from his Summerville-based automotive dealership.
“Johnny Dangerfield,” says Koch, “also puts in countless hours of his own personal time by making phone calls, arranging meetings, and organizing sponsors for our events and the sports ministry.”
Several of the sports ministry’s athletes are now Automaxx of the Carolinas customers, as is one of Seacoast’s pastors. “The service which they receive at Automaxx is second-to-none, and Johnny enjoys being personally involved in making sure that everyone has a fantastic experience, and that they’re treated fairly,” adds Koch.
Seacoast Sports brings a message of salvation to more than 600 athletes each year and has brought countless people toward a relationship with Christ, according to the Seacoast director. “There’s no way we could do what we do at Seacoast Sports without the help of Johnny Dangerfield and Automaxx,” Koch suggests.
“I count him as a blessing from God,” he adds of Dangerfield, wrapping up, “and someone I can rely on for anything. Thank you Johnny, and thank you Automaxx!”
