Play for God “It All Starts With God's Vision!” God is the Head Coach. Life is a gift from God. God has a purpose and a plan for each of our lives. Just like the game of basketball starts in the center of the court, real life begins by putting Jesus Christ in the center of your life. Put both feet inside God’s game court, trust God to coach you, and let Him be the referee. Play the game of life to win God’s approval and shoot for His righteousness
Work Hard for Jesus. Do your part. Let God's Grace help and guide you every step - pray constantly, read your Bible every day, and put in practice everything you learn.“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” Colossians 3:23
"I can do everything through him who gives me strengths." Philippians 4:13
Have Fun with Jesus while Working Hard “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but IN EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. “
When we know God loves us, and He is in control of our life, we can enjoy the abundant life He has for us and not worry and stress out, but tell all our worries to Him, and He will show us how to deal with them and He will work everything out for our good.
Never Give Up on Jesus. ” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you might be able to discern what is the will of God, what is good, acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2
The world will bombard us with different views and ideas, we have to keep our eyes and minds on Jesus to keep from watching and listening to ideas contradicting the Bible. We can't give up on the values we learn from the Bible just because of the wordly views.
Balanced Your Life for Jesus-live in balance with people around you. Be a team player. “Which commandment is the first of all? You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
Receive Jesus 10 commandments lead us to the Cross. "All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God". Romans 3:23 "I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me." John 14:6
Jesus wants to be your Savior, Lord and friend. Receive His Invitation.
Volunteers (up to 30 per show):
We have many volunteers involved in the show. Volunteers come up and help us with two ball dribbling, spinning one and two basketballs, dribbling and passing games, and eating a pudding while a ball spins on a spoon. Also, a volunteer gets to spin 5 basketballs at once... Kids and Adults LOVE being involded in the show!
We are still getting compliments about your performance. You touched a lot of hearts and lives that night. We are estimating that there were 1,200 people there. Many of whom were not saved.
You'll always have a special spot in our hearts. If there is ever an opportunity for you to come back, I hope you will.

Ilze succeeded in inspiring children and adults in a personal and practical way when she came to our Awards Night. Not only were her ball handling skills the best I've ever seen, but her message was one that has stayed fresh in my mind months afterward. Immediately from the beginning of her program she explained how her relationship with Jesus is the most important thing, and how she has discovered the necessity in depending on Him for everything, every day. Her actions and words encouraged us all to not give up even when things get difficult. Her presentation of the gospel was simple, yet not watered down. She was a pleasure to work with, and you too would benefit from bringing her to your group."
