WHY SPORTS MINISTRY?

Sports are one of the most universal languages in the world. Sports have the unique ability to break down economic, political, racial, lingual, and faith barriers drawing people of all walks of life to the game.
At Sports Outreach, we believe that God is our GM (General Manager).  As a part of God’s team, we each strive to be the best coach of our own soul through the spiritual disciplines of studying the Word, praying, worshipping, and seeking God’s purpose for our lives. As sports ministers, our disciplines come in the form of a 3Ts and 3Ds model of ministry.


SPORTS MINISTRY MODEL


STEP ON THE FIELD

Coaches initially STEP ON the field with community members providing TRAINING in sports skills and character development, building TRUSTING relationships, and sharing the TRUTH of the Gospel.

 


STEP OFF THE FIELD

As relationships continue to develop, coaches STEP OFF the field to engage DEEPER into lives, to meet emotional, practical, spiritual needs through DISCIPLESHIP, and to equip individuals for the purpose of DEPLOYING the next generation of servant leaders.
