Upward Sports at Geyer Springs

Promoting the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports


Upward Sports is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for K5 through 6th grade boys and girls that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in every child and also the sports specific skills to play the game. Here at Geyer Springs, our goal is for students to be introduced to the Gospel and be trained in their specific sport. In this program, every child plays!
