Our Mission evolved to using the game of basketball as a platform for ministry. Our Vision is to multiply a fruitful and sustainable ministry around the world. We offer free bibles, backpacks, T-shirts, hoodies, youth basketball camps, clinics, public speaking engagements and four $500 academic scholarships to Northridge and Portsmouth High Schools.
