The game of basketball is one of manyÂ giftings God has given this organization. Through it, we are able to engage young people and building relationships. As a result, basketball has opened numerous doors for the work we are doing in Africa. Basketball academies are used as outreach programs which teach foundational skills, provide camps, develop leadership, and share the Gospel. This is accomplished with the help of our local partners Hoops Care International and Athletes in Action. Our founder, Jake Sullivan, is invited to run basketball camps and trainings in numerous countries, giving him the opportunity to share the Gospel with both athletes and coaches.
The apostle Paul said â€œâ€¦I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of themâ€¦ I have become all things to all people that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.â€ ~ 1 Corinthians 9:19-23
