For two weeks, his name had been plastered all over Boston University’s campus. Stickers, posters and t-shirts asked: Do you agree with Anthony? Yet the real question around campus was, who is Anthony?
That question was answered on September 29, when Anthony Moccia, a Boston University student studying Public Health and goalie for the varsity hockey team, stood up to share his story of transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Anthony Moccia quickly became a friend to everyone in the room. He shared about his experience growing up in a Catholic church, going through middle school and high school, struggling with friendships and relationships, playing hockey for BU and eventually receiving Christ as his personal savior. He shared what it means for him to have a personal relationship with Christ and how that has changed and grown as he has gone through college.
One attendee responded to Anthony’s story on a comment card, saying,
“Anthony's talk was incredible and relatable. It was nice to hear from someone who understood coming from a non-Christian viewpoint but urging open-mindedness.”
“Anthony's message showed that everyone is truly on a spiritual journey, but through it all we need Jesus in our lives to guide us. His story makes me want to strengthen my spirituality.”
Several athletes in attendance expressed interest in becoming part of a small group or talking to someone about their spiritual journey.
