It is a very important matter to obey the Lord's teaching on discipleship. Much of this burden rests on the local church,yet we have been burdened to do all that we are able to do in order to fulfill the Great Commission.
Training Camp, a 112 page discipleship book, was written with sports fans in mind. This book is available to all of those young people and adults that make a decision at the tournament.
Ministry Expenses: There is no set fee or official requirement for this ministry to come serve in your church. We depend on the free-will expense gift from the church to help cover the cost of travel, equipment, and normal operating expenses.
Evangelist's Income: The income of the evangelist and his family comes from mission support and a free-will love offering taken by your church. This is not a requirement for our ministry to come serve with you.
