"I am convinced that the youth of today wil discover Jesus through sports ministry. Given our setting, I couldn't think of a more powerful way for lives to be impacted than through athletics. The platform of sports acts as a bridge to connect people, and once relationships are established, the love and grace of Jesus has the power to change lives. Our initiative within Athletic Missions send student-athletes and coaches to partner with what God is doing all over the country and the world. This dream has come fully alive as we have seen God make an impact in the lives of everyone involved. Host partnership is the key, and we are extremely grateful to work alongside such amazing partners." -Chris Klotz, Athletic Missions Coordinator
