What happens when a successful NFL running back and his entrepreneurial wife take an oversea’s trip and hand out Bibles to India’s children and youth?
They want to do more in the only way they know how; by going big and by being bold.
“This is where the real work of the Kingdom comes in,” says Matt Forté, who stood out as dual-threat running back and receiver with the Chicago Bears and New York Jets. “What can honor God more than placing His life-saving Word in the hands of a child?”
A longstanding voice for Christian causes, the 2008 second-round draft pick and ten-year NFL veteran knows only the Word of God can truly change a young person’s situation. Matt and Danielle established the “What’s Your Forté?” Foundation in 2013 to help at-risk teens find hope and a future (www.whatsyourfortefoundation.com). Along with working alongside her husband in philanthropic endeavors, Danielle has also developed her own thriving clothing line called 828 clothing (www.828clothing.com), and is now stepping into her new role as an IPEC-certified 828 Life Coach. Danielle’s company is named after her favorite verse, Romans 8:28.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NIV)
And now, the world will see the Forté family on a very different field.
Matt and Danielle have joined the Biblica team to help further the cause of Bible engagement in some of the world’s hardest places.
“We need to see the work of ministry going far beyond just our neighborhoods and our cities. We need to do our part of God’s Great Commission.” Danielle adds, “Biblica’s global efforts to ensure people read God’s Word in their own heart language is where we want to invest our time, talent and resources. There is still a lot of work to do and we are asking you to join us!”
Matt and Danielle’s new roles include the launch of a strategic campaign to reach vulnerable children in South Asia through multiple digital channels, including social media and podcasting.
