PCWC Sports Ministry, More than winning
A Christ-Centered Sports Ministry – Athletes for Christ
"For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things..." (1 Timothy 4:8)
PCWC Mission: To see unbelieving athletes become committed followers of Jesus Christ.
Motivation: Changed Lives
Main values: Faith – Growth – Fruitfulness
The Sports ministry at Praise Cathedral Worship Centre (PCWC) is rooted in our belief that all areas of life are sacred and everything we do must be under the Lordship of Christ (Colossians 3:17-23). We believe God is delighted when we pray but also when we play. He has created us with abilities and desires to play and compete and thus we "worship" Him in our activity (Romans 12:1).
The Sports Ministry of PCWC gives the whole family opportunities for health, fitness, friendship, fun, competition, venue for outreach, and spiritual development in an inviting, Christ-centered atmosphere.
"We are more than conquerors through Him who loves us."
- Romans 8:37
It is the hope and prayer of the PCWC Sports Ministry that we provide excellent opportunities for fellowship and inter-personal relationships to occur and grow through our various sports and recreational activities.
In communicating a proper Christian ethic of sport and competition, we seek to improve the overall physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of each player. We seek to encourage each participant who does not know Christ to establish a personal relationship with Him. For those who already do know Him, we hope to help deepen their walk with Christ in fellowship with others.
Finally, we seek to increase each participant's athletic skills that they may be able to play on an outreach team and minister to others involved in sports throughout the community and the world.
