We like to say at The Sports Outreach Group that we are one ministry with two passions. Our passion at CSO is to work with local churches to help them utilize the tool of sports to reach and redeem people and sports. Churches that do this have what we call Gospel-centered Sports Ministries.
At The Sports Outreach Group, our other passion is sports chaplaincy. The piece of the Sports Outreach Group that leads us in that passion is the Sports Chaplain Network (SCN), headed by Ken Cross.
In the following video, Bob Dyar, President of The Sports Outreach Group and Lead Chaplain at Joe Gibbs Racing, outlines the chaplain ministry at Joe Gibbs Racing. In addition, several of the employees of Joe Gibbs Racing talk about the impact of this ministry in their lives.
This story is another example of the incredible tool of sports – when they are placed in the hand of God. He is using the sport of racing to connect with men and women at Joe Gibbs Racing in a moving way. To read more about this movement, click here.
Let me ask you – What might it look like for you to place your sports into God’s hands? How might he use your in and through those sports to reach and redeem people? How might he use those sports to reveal your own heart and deepen your walk with him?
