push the rock
[pu̇sh t͟hə räk]
1. moving the ball (or the “rock”) quickly up the court.
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the rock eternal!
In 1997, two eastern Pennsylvania high school basketball coaches had a vision to leverage their passion for sports as an outreach tool to share the gospel. In the Bible, there are many references to God being the “rock” of our salvation, and that Jesus Christ is the “Rock” and foundation of how God will build his Church.
That single week of basketball camp has grown into a global multi-sport ministry operating in 6 different countries. Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Spain, Zambia and the United States all share the experiences and proves that sports quickly break down any barriers, while providing an effective platform to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
Over the past 25 years, we are thankful for the opportunity to partner with local churches and like-minded Christian organizations to impact more than 125,000 people globally. Our vision continues to focus on using sports to impact the world for Jesus Christ, one life at a time.
