Alternative worship draws students

tian churches are seeing an
increase in students. say
church leaders and members.

This style of worship
had nearly 2.5 million mem-
bers. as of the 2000 census.
Many are saying this num-
ber is rising due to political
and social change in the
world during the last four
years. as well as a desire of
churchgoers to have a more
casual worship environ-

“The growth has to do
with the fact that there is a
growing need for spirituali-
ty in college and 20-some-
thing groups." said the Rev.
Ron Chamblin. an associate
pastor at Northeast Christ-
ian Church.

The majority of nonde-
nominational churches of-
fer a contemporary worship

tional. their leaders say.
These churches are not
united under a common
faith or name. nor are they

said the Rev. Brad Stone. a
college minister at South-
land Christian Church.

“It's just the

“Some of the shift is be-
cause young adults grew up
going to church because of
your family. and you are out
making your first choices."

Stone attributed much of
the growth of nondenomi-
national congregations to
the broad scope of the
church itself.

“We're not stuck in tra-
dition and not stuck in out
side control.“ Stone said.

Stone said members

have told him it has a lot to
do with the changes in soci-
ety and the world.

“Change happens.“
Stone said. “People need
change because of how soci-
ety has changed. If your
methods don't change. you
will be passed up."

GAINESVILLE. Fla. — As UK head coach
Rich Brooks finished his post-game press con-
ference. Taylor Begley walked into the room.

“Here comes our points."
Brooks said of UK’s junior

Welcome to Ron Hudson’s

In the Swamp on Satur-
day. the highlight for UK’s of-
fense was Begley’s 51-yard
field goal. After that. it was
painful to watch UK‘s offense
stumble and stagger around
Florida Field.

On that first drive. UK
had four first downs. The
Cats finished the day with 10.

After that opening drive.
the Cats had seven possessions with five or
fewer plays.

And the plays they ran were hard to

Sideline pass. screen pass. quarterback
draw. punt. Or some variation of the same
plays with the same result.

"We can control what we do with what we
have." Brooks said. “Today there were some
situations we could have done lot better job
with what we have against what they have.

“We didn‘t make those plays.“

Those plays are the problems because the
Cats would not have gone anywhere even if
they managed to execute a little better:

Each week. Brooks and Co. lecture us
about the speed of the Southeastern Confer-
ence. They tell us how UK does not have the
players to compete with that speed.

Then they come up with an offensive
game plan that exposes that weakness on
every single play

Hudson. the UK offensive coordinator.
puts his players in impossible positions with
these plays.

There's receiver Glenn Holt. asked to
break at least five tackles to gain five yards.
There's quarterback Shane Boyd. asked to
carry the ball 14 times ,. more than all the
carries UK‘s running backs had combined.

These things are frustrating enough on
their own. but it's really hard to take when
UK‘s defense produces three turnovers and
manages to hold Florida to 20 points.

“We figured the offense was going to make
a play sometime." said UK senior cornerback
Earven Flowers.

They never did.

And it‘s hard to believe they ever will as
long as Hudson keeps calling twoyard routes
for receivers and off-tackle runs for Boyd.

Brooks is right. UK can control what it
has. which means Hudson must start design-
ing plays to fit these players. not the ones he
had back at Kansas State or the ones he
promises to recruit.

Hudson has to design plays suited to UK's
strengths. He has to let Boyd throw the ball
down the field every now and then. He has to
make adjustments when the same play fails
time after time.

()n defense. coordinator Mike Archer has
found ways to succeed. And Hudson keeps
finding ways to waste any opportunities the
defense delivers.
