SERIES 4 RECAP: “Attracting & Ministering to the Older Athlete” Webinar
Is your church looking to increase your reach in the community to include the older athlete? This older athlete is the middle school, junior high, and even high school athlete that is looking for a place to continue to play, a safe environment, and be with their friends. Your church sports league is the place where they feel welcome as a younger child, and offering an older age division or league continues the ministry impact. Join us to hear from Dr. David Pierce (IUPUI) as he shares national data on the older athlete and sports trends today. We will also have 3 Upward Sports league directors share their experience leading and ministering to the older athlete in their sports ministry.
