In August of 2013 YMI expanded its sports ministry program, forming a new division called Base Sports. Base's goal is to equip the local church with sports ministry tools that empower them to reach more people in their communities. They do this through providing training for the local church to equip its congregation, and young people in particular, to use sports to reach out to their community with the Gospel.

As we expand this aspect of our ministry, we are looking for people who are passionate about students reaching children with the Gospel through sports while also training local churches in this vital ministry.

In 2015, Base Sports added High Power Sports Camps and Clubs to its ministry offerings. This grew the ministry of Base, which is now international in focus. In addition to working with over 100 churches in the US, Base now has High Power ministry taking place in several countries in Africa and Central America. As a result of donations, we will launch High Power Sports Camps in South America shortly.

We expect more great things through this ministry as Base looks forward to 2016. This next year, Base Sports is looking to work with over 200 churches as we expand our High Power Sports Camp and Club ministry. As we work with more churches, more will be trained in this valuable ministry tool, leading to more young Christian leaders who can use sports to share their faith.

In order to make this possible, we need donors like you to give to this effort. For as little as $10 per month, you can join us and empower the Base staff to work with more churches, train more students, and reach more children during this launch year. Now, more than ever, sports are being used as a way to impact our world for Christ, and you can be a part of it by joining the Base Sports team as a Playmaker!
