Sam Sievers, Lenexa Baptist Church - Lenexa, KS
When the Church Stays Present
in the Community
“We were determined to do whatever it took to continue pouring into each child and family. We had to face head-on the question of how to love our community in the best way through everything that was going on. We knew that by continuing our league in whatever way we could, we would be opening the door to love families in a deeper way.”
But Sam believes that one of the most important things he learned is that true leaders don’t make themselves indispensable; instead, they focus on building up the community to further the mission of glorifying God and forming disciples. Sports is one way for leaders to build a Godly community. Sports serve as an effective method of breaking down barriers between all backgrounds and bringing new individuals into a community where connection truly begins. “We want to launch all families into the World, preparing them for what God has planned,” said Sam.
Everyone is created on purpose, for a purpose.
