sports reach provides a clear and effective way to make a meaningful impact
Like you, we desire to be a good steward of resources. At Sports Reach, we’re not just about sports; we’re about building relationships through sports to spread the good news of Jesus “to all the world” (Mark 16:15).
we want you to be involved. With Sports Reach, you’ll:
- Get monthly updates on our ministry efforts,
- Have the opportunity to join us on trips as leaders or coaches,
- Have an invite to our annual banquet, where you can learn more about the ministry’s impact on athletes, coaches, and beyond.
Sports break down language, culture, and religion barriers, unlike any other platform. Our athletes, coaches, and leaders are invited into many countries and prisons that don’t welcome just anybody to play ball, share their faith, and invite others to have a life-changing relationship with Christ. We want to invite you to join this mission.
“Sports Reach is a phenomenal outreach program that travels everywhere to try to bring people to Christ. I was in prison, had I not been I probably wouldn’t have found the Lord. My life was headed to destruction. These guys give up their life on the outside to come in and try to reach people with lost souls. For years I ran and ran and ran, but October 16, 2009 I gave my life to Christ. I’m so grateful to that, that I can say I’m standing here a free man because of Sports Reach.”
– Jimmy Powell, Former Inmate
GIVE SPORTS REACH A BUMP (OR TWO)
COMMIT TO $38/MONTH
Join us in celebrating 38 incredible years of spreading the Gospel through sports with The Bump. We challenge you to step up to the plate and give Sport Reach a $38/month bump (or a one-time donation of $456).
In baseball, the game is won one play at a time. Similarly, as you journey down the road of life, a single little bump may not seem like a game-changer. But think about it this way: Just as a series of little bumps on the road can add up to a significant jolt or the culmination of a single hit, stolen base, and perfectly executed double play can secure the win, your contribution, when combined with others, makes a big difference!
Prayerfully consider joining our mission this year by giving us a bump, or two!
Your $38/month Directly Supports Our 2024 Missions
Your contributions in 2023 enabled us to touch lives across continents. We were blessed by trip leaders, coaches, athletes, preachers, prayer partners, and donors who made it possible for us to bring glory to God in Cincinnati, Detroit, the Phillippines, Jamaica, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Azerbaijan, and more!
We are excited about what surprises God has in store for 2024!
In 2024, we’re excited to reach even further. Here’s a sneak peek at our upcoming missions:
✓ January: Softball outreach in Florida prisons
✓ May: Basketball missions in Uruguay and Brazil
✓ Summer: Camps across Tennessee, Texas, and Alabama
…the list goes on.
