Upward Sports



Upward Sports is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for pre-K through 6th grade boys and girls. Through this sports program we seek to develop the self-esteem of each participant, while teaching sportsmanship, character, athletic skills, and respect for authority in every situation.


We offer Upward soccerbasketball and cheerleading during the year.


All Upward sports games are played at the church in our gymnasium or on our
athletic field located on the church grounds.


"Mr. Billy" Williams leads our Upward Programs.
