Overview

Evangelism has many forms for today’s Christians. Some use tracts, others use memorized plans of salvation. Betty Wiseman uses a basketball. Sports evangelism has become increasingly popular in Third-World countries. Betty Wiseman, a Hall of Fame coach, is a walking, talking, dribbling testimony of this. She has led sports teams to numerous countries in South America and Europe and used a bouncing ball to tell a lost world about the love of Christ. Through her globe-trotting adventures, you will see just how simple sharing your faith can be when you use something you so dearly enjoy as a catalyst for evangelism.
