Sports Epidemic is a 501(c)(3) NonProfit organization committed to share the Love of God with the world through Sports Outreach. Our desire is for people to know and love God, to love their neighbors, and enjoy relationships with one another through sports outreach. We reach out to our community and the world through sports clubs, camps, clinics, short term mission trips, and community outreach events.
Sports Epidemic began operations in Oct of 2017.
Founder and President
"The inspiration for Sports Epidemic began when I was serving overseas in Stuttgart Germany. I found myself totally overwhelmed by a sense of God's incredible compassion for people and the realization that so many people lived their lives without knowing the Love and Hope that God is holding out to them every day. Maybe some would never step foot in a Church to hear about God's greatest gift, Jesus, but perhaps they might come to a sports event or club and hear the words that could change their lives forever."

Our Foundation: The sole basis for our belief is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired, without error, and the final authority for living. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
The Trinity: There is one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - each possessing all the attributes of deity. (Matthew 28:19)
The Father: God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation comes only through God’s grace - not human effort - and must be received personally by repentance and faith. (Romans 3:23-26 / Romans 5:1)
The Son: Jesus Christ, second Person of the Trinity, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on earth and
voluntarily paid for our sin by shedding His blood and dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between us and God. He will return to earth. (John 1:1 / Matthew 1:18-25 / 1 Corinthians 15:1-8 / Acts 1:9-11 / Hebrews 9:27-28)
The Holy Spirit: We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:15-26 / John 16:5-16 / Ephesians 1:13-14)
