We know that it is sometimes tough to reach out to friends, co-workers, and neighbors and talk to them about faith. Sports With a Purpose is meant to provide regular opportunities to reach out to others, by using sports as a tremendous bridge-builder tool within our community. As an outreach ministry, we currently have co-ed teams, men’s teams, and would love to add to women’s teams as interest grows!

Sports With a Purpose is open to anyone from any campus. Currently, all leagues are in the Franklin area, however, we would love to expand to Nashville, Nolensville, and Columbia whenever someone is ready to lead a sport at their campus.

If you would like to learn more about this ministry, creating or joining a team, please fill out our interest form or contact T Lusk.
