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 of 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.

Travel…Preach…Repeat

It may seem like we are stealing our ministry mantra from the back of a shampoo bottle, but in this case the process is more similar than you might think.  Our Citrus Country 3 crusade was so successful that we are jumping back in with both feet and heading to the same area of Florida…in just two weeks!

Yes, from June 23-27 the Saints will be conducting the SONshine State crusade in central Florida.  We will be ministering in four prisons in four days – two that we visited in April (Polk CI and Hardee CI) and two that we have not visited in more than 15 months (Sumter CI and Zephyrhills CI).   You might ask why we would go right back to the same area, so I’ll answer the question in advance…they asked us to!

We received a tremendous response from the previous crusade, including an email directly from one of the wardens to our Director!  The entire region was buzzing with news of our visit, so we decided to “reward” them for hosting our team by jumping right back into the experience again.

We ask for your continued prayers for all involved, including:

– the 14 Missionary Athletes who will make the trip

– the families they are leaving behind

-the inmates that we will encounter on the yard

-the staff at each facility

-traveling mercies

-health/safety for everyone

Most importantly, pray that the gospel is preached boldly and penetrates the many hearts that long for a Savior!
