Asbury Athletics Communications asked Muncie the following questions for her student-athlete feature.

What does serving, training, and competing for the glory of God mean to you?

Serving, training, and competing for the glory of God means getting to use the gifts that He has blessed me with to not only perform well on the soccer field, but also to help others. Both help me to pursue my calling of making God known to those around me.

Who are some of the coaches, faculty and staff that have impacted you at AU?

Coach Zach has impacted me in pushing me to train the hardest I can so that I compete the best I can. Jennifer McChord has been a great support and role model in my spiritual growth.

How have you grown spiritually during your time at Asbury?

I have grown a lot spiritually so far during my time at Asbury. I have been surrounded by some really amazing people who have pushed and challenged me to expand and grow my faith in different aspects. God has also used some different seasons to reveal new things about His character to me. The Outpouring kickstarted a fire inside of me to go even deeper in my knowledge, faith, and love of our Lord and Savior. It was something I will remember for the rest of my life and will forever thank the Lord for that time.

What advice would you give to new student-athletes coming to Asbury?

Some advice that I would give to new student athletes at Asbury would be to really embrace the culture that Asbury sports teams have to offer. Striving to compete for God’s glory every time you step on the field or court. Also, don’t be afraid to make friends outside of your teammates, there are a lot of awesome people on other sports teams and non-athletes. Having a variety of different people influencing you helps to grow and push you.
