• Sports Ministry Management

    The sports ministry management program partners with the Bible major and Kuyper’s Business Leadership program with classes to holistically train and equip leaders to develop future leaders for the kingdom of God. Specifically, it prepares students to engage the current culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ using a variety of sporting activities that embody truth and love. This marriage of evangelism, discipleship and sports can occur in recreational roles, parachurch ministries, community youth agencies, international training organizations or missionary settings.

    Upon completion of the sports ministry management program, students will be able to:

    • State the biblical, theological, and philosophical foundations of sports ministry that are consistent with a biblical, Reformed worldview.
    • Demonstrate a missional attitude and heart for sports ministry in contemporary culture.
    • Promote incarnational relationships and a God-centered lifestyle for all sports ministry communities.
    • Evaluate and create methods, tools, and resources for sports ministry programs.
    • Analyze participants' mental and emotional capacities in pressure situations and implement tools to help athletes and participants in sports ministry to properly conduct themselves as followers of Christ.
    • Communicate the gospel using culturally effective methods to bring the grace of God into today's culture.
    Young people possess the potential to move and shake the economic, political, social and religious structures of our world. Who better to reach through sports to convey the reconciling message of Christ than those who are first-hand participants in the heart of our culture? This message offers eternal salvation as well as transformation for the whole person and the systems in which people live. Sports ministries that invite true discipleship go beyond counting converts to equipping them for hope-filled participation in the kingdom of God.
