In any given month, 96% of the U.S. population will play, watch, or read about sports at least once. With such a strong following, athletes strongly impact our lives. Many times we watch these sports stars fall from glory, while many people are idolizing these sometimes faithless role models. The reality is, our society places athletes on a pedestal to live out their lives. We cannot be surprised when these men and women fall if Christ is not at the center of their lives. This is the bottom line: A society looking up to athletes as heroes must find heroes looking up to God.
We exist to boldly proclaim the love and truth of Jesus Christ to those uniquely impacted by sport worldwide by winning, building, and sending athletic influencers. As God has uniquely called us to minister to the athletic community, we desire to sow and proclaim the Gospel as widely as possible. Seeing that the Gospel is the power of God for salvation for all who believe (Romans 1:16), we endeavor to bring the good news to every college athlete and build spiritual movements of multiplication on campuses across the United States. So the question becomes, “Who will influence the influencers?”
