Sports and recreational activities influence large portions of many family and individual schedules. We can’t move too far in a community without seeing some kind of organized sporting event, a pick up game on the playground, a scheduled practice or hear about some camp focused on sports.
We hold in our hands an incredible opportunity to build relationships as we participate in sporting activities that we love and then intersect our faith with those relationships. Then through these activities, as we get to know and care about those we have fun with, we build a platform to share the Gospel and open doors to do work in His name.
Texas Baptists are involved in building those relationships through sports related ministries in their communities and across the world. You can find links to different Texas Baptist related sports ministries here: http://texasbaptists.org/resort-leisure-sports/. For more information on these ministries you can contact Bob Raus, Director of Resort, Leisure and Sports for Texas Baptists at 214.828.5122 or email him at email@example.com.
You can also find specific sports mission opportunities on Be On Mission by choosing Sports / Recreation under Category. You may also toggle between Open, Ongoing and Completed projects on the map by using the color pins above the search tool.
