I knew all about salvation and what Christ did for me on the cross, but I never made it personal. I acted like a Christian and talked like a Christian, but I wasn’t saved. When I was in 8th grade, through a series of circumstances at school, the Lord brought me to a point where I was face to face with my sin. I remember thinking, “How could anyone ever love me?” Then it clicked. God loves me, He loves me so much He sent His Son to die for me. It was then that I made it personal and accepted Christ as my Savior.
I met Rachel in 2007 at Camp CoBeAc where we were both summer counselors. We were married in 2009. The Lord has blessed us with three boys – James (5), Christian (3), and Nate (1). Our family loves outdoor activities, but we also like to cuddle up on the couch and read a book together.
Huber played Junior Varsity and Varsity soccer during High School in Pennsylvania, and also played college soccer before graduating with an undergraduate degree in Camp Administration in 2001. The Lord moved Huber to California for five years where he taught elementary school. During this time, he was able to coach several different sports through the YMCA and in a local youth soccer league, as a referee and coach. Huber moved back to Pennsylvania to teach in a Christian school and coach youth soccer while working on a graduate degree. In 2010, he finished a Master of Science in Sport and Athletic Administration and began working as a Director for a local YMCA. He moved his family to Maranatha in 2012, and has served since as the Director of Student Activities and Intramural Sports.
As a coach, I want my players to learn the game, work hard, and play on purpose. Paul echoes this philosophy in I Corinthians 9:24-27 where he encourages the Corinthians to work toward an incorruptible goal, to do everything for a reason, and maintain a testimony that reflects Christ. That’s what I want for my players on the soccer field and in their lives. We respect the game, we work hard, and we play smart not just to get the win, but also to develop character and God-given talents and abilities for His glory.
