The Sports Commission is a group dedicated to fulfilling the Great Commission through the platform of sports.
What is the Sports Commission?
People from all sports, backgrounds & walks of life that want to make an impact for Christ. They desire to use their talent, gifts, influence & sports platform to share the gospel & make an impact in this life. This could include but is not limited too: players, coaches, trainers, pastors, administrators, directors & so many other titles that in some way are involved in sports ministry.
What is the purpose of the Sports Commission?
The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20): And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
With the rise in popularity of youth sports on up to the massive followings at the college/professional levels it is clear that the sports world is a mission field globally. There are many talented & gifted believers involved in sports that also have the ability to be amazing witnesses for Christ. Does this sound like you? The Sports Commission was created to encourage, equip, sharpen & connect us together. The interest in sports has only increased & yet statiscally there is a decline in the attendance & interest in traditional church settings. The sports commission fills in that gap to 'go outside the walls' and meet people where they are at in the sports world with the Gospel.
When do we meet?
Scheduled meetings will happen via online or zoom meetings. The host is Phillip Morrison from the Basketball Ministry, Hoops for Christ, and there will be multiple guests that contribute in online meetings. If you sign up, you will be informed & invited to these meetings & future events. The goal is to branch out in time to have conferences, events & workshops in various chosen locations.
