Is Your Church Thriving?

We understand the deep desire for a healthy and thriving church. Figuring out the right things to do and where to invest your efforts can oftentimes feel overwhelming. By leveraging the power of sports to create gospel and connection opportunities, we help bridge the gap between the church and young families.

Creating new opportunities to grow engagement and impact lives

Over 218 million people participated in sports in 2018 alone. Families across the country fill the fields and courts each Saturday, watching the games of their son or daughter. What if those families were coming to your church campus to practice and play games? Few ministries help revitalize a church like youth sports. 


With an Upward Sports league, you will have numerous opportunities for ministry touchpoints throughout the season, including registration, evaluations, practices, game days and an end-of-season celebration. You will also see volunteers from your congregation serve that have never volunteered before.

Simply put, sports have a way of bringing people together.
