Team Statistics

80% of inmates will not attend a formal religious program, but they will attend an athletic event in large numbers. SPM uses athletics to fuel attendance at these events, but our true purpose is to reach men and women with the Gospel ofvolunteer_img Jesus Christ, allowing them to experience the transforming power of God’s love.

For that reason, the Team Statistics listed do not show free throw shooting percentages, or batting average. These statistics reflect the “success” of our teams in drawing people to Jesus and leading them to the foot of the cross.

Team statistics include how many men or women attended a particular event, how many of them stayed to hear the Gospel presented clearly, the number of inmates who made a profession of faith at that event, and the number of Gospels we distributed at that event.

Our Sports teams are made up of all volunteer athletes who love the Lord Jesus Christ and strive to represent Him in everything we do. These teams minister seasonally to inmates around the country in basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball.
