Core Values: Radical Discipleship; Uncomfortable Outreach; Intentional Mission

Contact Pastor Chad

Pastors Chad & Mike recognized a need in the community for low-key, family friendly basketball program. Beginning in 2016, Upward Basketball combines bible study, evangelism and basketball for unique ministry. In 2019 there were just over 300 athletes in the program on 32 different teams. Each team practices for one hour per week and plays one game on Saturday. In the middle of practice, the teams will break for a 10-15 minutes character lesson based on a bible story. Between games, the athletes gather at center court for an evangelistic message.

Core Values: Radical Discipleship; Uncomfortable Outreach; Intentional Mission

Several years ago, before Upward Basketball, Upward Flag Football hit the area as an outreach and mission ministry. Operating as a partnership between Broadfording Church and Maugansville Church, the mission is to use the influence of sports to reconcile the lost to God. Each team practices for one hour per week and plays one game on Saturday. In the middle of practice, the teams will break for a 10-15 minutes character lesson based on a bible story. Between games, the athletes gather at midfield for an evangelistic message.
