Founded December, 7th 1988 by Russ and Sue Carr.


Our mission is to recruit, train, equip and deploy committed Christian leaders in the effective use of sports ministry for the purpose of sharing the Gospel and to alleviate human suffering.

Every day people suffer, but we don’t believe it should be that way! Therefore, responding to God’s call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with those less fortunate, Sports Outreach employs an effective holistic model to change the world by restoring hope and transforming lives!

Working side by side with those we serve, Sports Outreach shares and demonstrates adaptability and resiliency that empowers and equips individuals, families, and communities to overcome adversity, reduce suffering and be transformed.  

Will you help us change the world by sharing the compelling love of Christ, restoring hope and transforming lives?

Ways to Join the Mission


Sports Outreach is intentional to see that our mission, programs, and staff embraces and incorporates strategies that are: Practical. Sustainable. Burden Lifting.

(1)  Honor God in all that we do!

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.”  This is the great and foremost commandment.” – Matthew 22:36-38

(2)  Develop people both spiritually and physically!

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” – 2 Timothy 2:2

(3)  Be good stewards, for all things are gifts from God, on loan to us to help those in need!

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” – 1 Peter 4:10

(4)  Pursue excellence because God creates all things with excellence and therefore, we will do no less!

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” – Colossians 3:17
