Helping kids get a real kick out of AYSO

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- LDS Church member Chris Mendenhall was featured in the Los Angeles Times' regular 'Up Close' column for his work as a volunteer for the American Youth Soccer Organization, Region 678, which includes 2,150 youth playing soccer on 211 teams, involving some 4,000 parents, who volunteer to help run the organization. Mendenhall is the Regional commissioner for Region 678.

Mendenhall is a Loan Officer for LA Mortgage, Inc. But to judge from his experience, he spends a lot of time on soccer and other sports. He has served in the AYSO's management since 1992, and has also been a coach in several different sports, and had 7 different volunteer positions with the AYSO besides management positions.

His LDS Church service has also been extensive. An RM, Mendenhall is currently a seminary teacher, but has also served as physical facilities representative, young men's committee member, ward executive secretary and as a member of his stake high council.

If you had any doubt about his membership in the Church, just look at the personal motto that he gave to the Times, "When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are in the service of your God."
