SPORTS MINISTRY AT GRACE
CREATING GAME CHANGING ATHLETIC ENVIRONMENTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES.
At the heart of sports ministry at Grace Church is a simple phrase, “greater than a game.” We strongly believe the lessons we learn through sports are reflective of those we learn in life. Sports do not change our character, but reveal it. Dealing with disappointment, handling success, working together, managing pressure, decision making, maximizing opportunities, preparation, taking responsibility, overcoming adversity, and strengthening weaknesses are just a few of the life lesson examples we encounter through sports. As a result, we want to not only sharpen an athlete’s game, but also their life.
