Radiant Sports and Fitness
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. We believe that the world’s image of sports and fitness puts man in the centre, but we desire to do sports with Jesus in the centre, letting Him have the place that He deserves in our lives.
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. We want to explore, go beyond our limits, and learn together as a team how to reach goals. We want to listen to God and learn how to do sports in a healthy way that is pleasing to Him.
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. We work together with staff and students in different areas including: sports and fitness, football, and extreme sports. Learning new techniques and skills from one another. We also use sports to do evangelism and outreach in our area.
