Only God could author a story like Push The Rock’s, which spans 20 years of ministering to people through the shared experience of sports. YOU are such an amazing part of this story, and we are excited for your continued partnership.
It’s from that strong, God-written story that we can even think to pursue our most expansive growth plan in our 20-year history: Equip > Expand > Engage
This is a God-sized vision. Through prayer, God’s leading toward these aspirations below is clear, and we believe he is calling us together to accomplish this in the next four years.

The E3 Approach
We feel a strong tension between our earthly desire to accomplish goals and God’s sovereign timing. Yet, in every case, God’s timing wins and we will prayerfully seek that in every step.
So, on one hand, we have a strategic plan in place and an outline of $3 million that it will take to accomplish this God-sized vision. We can’t wait to share more of those plans – which extend beyond Zambia – in the coming weeks and months so that you, too, can catch this vision.
Yet, on the other hand, God has guided and redirected so many times when we didn’t see His plans. So we will wait on His timing for funds to come in before we build. And, in some cases, where He opens new, unexpected doors, we will shift course.
This vision for growth changes nothing about our core mission: to proclaim the life-changing message of Jesus Christ through the pursuit of excellence in sportsmanship and athletics. Our staff is 100% committed to this vision, and we could not be more thrilled to work alongside them.
So what’s your team position?
Today, we are asking you to make a commitment to ensure that we can achieve the vision God has laid on our hearts. With your contribution, we can do any of the following:
