Our Mission

Promoting the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports.

Our Values

The Expectation of God Moments – We believe that God is at work all around us.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10

The Life of Integrity – We believe that how we live is more important than what we say.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

The Opportunity to Serve – We believe that it is a privilege to serve others.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. – Mark 10:45

The Discipline of Excellence – We believe in exceeding expectations.
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

The Priority of Children – We believe that every child is a winner.
In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost. – Matthew 18:14
