Before leaving earth for Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ gave a "Great Commission" to His followers. He told them to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20)."
For 2000 years, Christ-followers have communicated His love and forgiveness. Communication works best in the common language of teacher and learner. Many speak the worldwide "language of sports." Sports are effective communication devices and vital points of contact with the lost world!
The purpose of this book is to assist educators in sports ministry instruction by encouraging and informing believers in Jesus Christ to obey the Great Commission through sports. Its intent is to stimulate a vision of sport ministry that will please our Savior!
