The Sports Ministry operates a summer athletic program for high school students. This program works in partnership with New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis, founder of Devoted Dreamers.

This program focuses on developing youth through coaching, tutoring and Bible study. Devoted Dreamers provides a safe, empowering and encouraging outlet for students to develop their character.


Students rise above ordinary standards to a level of excellence. After a short time, students involved in these ministries are more effective in their educational and personal pursuits, and they begin to value hard work and dedication which will carry them well into their adult years.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Jackson State University, Millsaps College and Belhaven University are

integral partners along with hundreds of ministry volunteers.

"I want to thank you for setting up the foundations of my faith today. I vividly remember the many devotions you gave that really made an impact on how I viewed God and my relationship with him. Coach, you have truly been a blessing and guiding light in my life."
