OUR MISSION: to present the good news of Jesus Christ and develop disciples of our Lord by building Christ-centered relationships using the sport of basketball.


IN CHRIST: Christ's ministry was centered on relationships - it is our goal to do the same in a fun and exciting way. We return to play in each city year after year in hopes of strengthening the bonds of friendship that have formed over a long period of time between News Release Basketball and the clubs, hosts, and people that we meet.
"...Because I live, you also will live. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him." – John 14:19-21 

THROUGH HOOPS: Basketball games, basketball camps, basketball clinics...as well as youth rallies, church meetings, Bible studies, music, individual faith-stories. In everything we do we use the talents and passions that God has given us to share His love with others. 
"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." – 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 

TO THE WORLD: it is as simple as it looks - we desire to share how Christ has changed our lives with the whole world. 
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." – Matthew 28:19-20
