Steve Connor, a specialist in sports ministry, shows us why sports ministry is a great idea for today's church.
This is not just a book about how to get people feverishly active in all kind of sports - it is a thoughtful look at developing a carefully balanced approach as part of your church strategy.
Steve shows you how to get the whole church 'onside', develop the workers and make an impact in your area.
He shows the history of sports ministry and its biblical foundations. He not only tells us WHY we should do it - he then goes on to show HOW to do it and gives us different programme models to follow or adapt.
Sports ministry does not just stop on the 'field of play'. Steve then shows you how to bring the activity 'indoors' by integrating people into the life of the church.
Unleash the huge potential of Sports ministry in your area with 'Sports Outreach'
