Colonial Sports exists to glorify God by using sports to teach life principles and Biblical truths that point athletes to His Son, Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 12:1-2 - Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
“75% of people in America participate in, watch, or read about a sporting event of some type every day.”
Colonial Sports Ministry capitalizes on the popularity of sports as a platform for exposing our sports saturated culture to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that sports is a valuable asset that God would desire us to use for the advancement of the Gospel.
In addition, according to the AACAP children on sports teams better learn skills involving interaction with peers. They learn values such as teamwork, cooperation, learn how to handle both victory and defeat, and learn how to handle a competitive environment. These are all life principles that we find are learned at a unique level on the playing field.
We find it clear in Scripture that every believer should be involved in ministry activity for the furtherance of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Sports ministry cannot function without the help of our volunteers and coaches! Explore this possibility by emailing Peter Bonner at Pbonner@colonial.org
