Our commitment to our ministry partners...

» To work diligently to touch the lives of people for Jesus Christ.

» To regularly let you know how God is blessing the ministry.

» To be financially faithful with the funds given for my ministry.

» To share prayer concerns with one another.

Thank You!

This ministry would not exist without the prayers and support of those who love the gospel and see the platform of sport as an effective way to minister the gospel of Jesus Christ to a worldwide audience. We greatly appreciate your support to accelerate our mission of building spiritual movements everywhere through the platform of sports.


The Century Club has been established to help provide funds for AIA Sports Performance ministry events. Your donations will be used to further develop this ministry. Would you prayerfully consider making an annual donation of $100 or some other amount to our department to assist us in meeting these needs? Join the Century Club here!

Examples of our needs include:

  • Scholarship fund for those who wish to participate on a project with AIA Sports Performance, but do not have the financial opportunities others do.

  • Ministry Fellowships and Prayer Breakfasts at continuing education meetings.

  • Athletic Training and Strength & Conditioning Equipment.
