In the Gospels, Jesus tells us to love God with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind. God cares deeply about all of our being, including our physical body. Physical fitness isn’t the ultimate goal of the sports and fitness ministry; the goal is to glorify God with every part of who He created us to be.
Sports encourage us to be active, to make an effort, to sacrifice, and to be disciplined. It teaches us to persevere. It works on our character. It gives us strength to serve the One who called us.
Unity and growth are at the centre of sports and fitness. Something powerful happens when a group of people choose to push boundaries and gather together with that goal in mind. Our goal is to make a relevant change in the world through this way of living.
“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”– Michael Jordan
