Men’s Banquet with Trent Meacham

The annual FCC Men’s Banquet is coming up next week on Tuesday, April 30th. Tickets are $8 and are available at the church office or from any of the Disciples men. Dinner begins at 6pm and includes chopped steak with mushroom gravy, potatoes, green beans, salad, rolls and dessert. The program begins at 7pm and features Trent Meacham, a professional basketball player with the Boulazac Basket Dordogne in France and former Illini basketball star. Now, at the conclusion of his career, Trent has turned to inspirational and motivational speaking. On his website, he writes,

“In 2019 at the conclusion of my career as a professional athlete I decided to launch this website + newsletter as a place to go in-depth into what I learned through my experiences, successes and struggles as well as what I continue to learn in the realms of mindset, performance, preparation, competition, leadership, character development and more. As an average-sized white guy playing the game of basketball, I constantly asked myself the questions, ‘Am I good enough?’ and ‘Do I have what it takes?’” 

Trent is a Christian athlete and #1 in his life is his faith as a follower of Jesus. FCC is indeed fortunate to have him as our guest on April 30th. Read more about Trent Meacham at
