ABOUT THE BASKETBALL DTS

 

The main focus of the BDTS is “to win men for the Master through the gym”. This is accomplished by playing pick-up games, running camps and tournaments for the purpose of sharing Jesus with others. During the school, you will have opportunities to play at inner-city courts as well as some indoor recreation courts throughout the city of Pittsburgh as well as international courts in order to see lives forever changed. 

Each week of your 3 month lecture phase is filled with class topics such as Hearing the Voice of God, The Father Heart of God, Inductive Bible Study and Missions. Although the Lecture Phase of the BDTS runs alongside the VAMDTS (Visual Arts and Media DTS), there is a separate focus on basketball used as outreach for the BDTS. Throughout this phase, you will be instructed on how to set up camps and run drills for your outreach phase.  

The outreach phase will be spent playing and teaching Basketball to all ages while using the game to share the love of Christ. Each day will be filled with pick-up games, clinics, and tournaments. The best part comes after when we get to share the good news of Jesus. We have such great responses from these outreaches that we have then been able to continue on in discipleship with these new believers!

 

THE INFLUENCE OF BASKETBALL


T
O WIN MEN FOR THE MASTER THROUGH THE GYM.

This was the response James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, gave when asked why he created the game. A Christian theologian, he invented basketball in 1891 as a way to keep kids off the street and bring them into the gym to build relationships and share the Gospel. After days of trying different combinations of soccer, football, and other sports,... basketball was born! 

Sports are a powerful thing! They bring unity and they bring division. That is not surprising considering the loyalty cities and countries feel towards their teams. Being one of the fastest growing sports in the world, has, a century later, changed the world. And although it was created to win souls for Christ, much is now fertile soil for greed, and pride. We want to change that! We want to bring it back to its original calling! We are calling you to join us as we use basketball for which it was invented,... winning people to Christ. 

Do you love basketball? Do you want a deeper relationship with Christ? Join us for this epic adventure. Your skills can make a difference in your world!
