Testimonial “The greatest benefit to the team is the Christian-centered ministry that envelopes envelopes training. The ministry is given with a light touch, but enough to demonstrate to the players the importance of Christianity in their lives. At the end of each training session the player gather for 5-10 minutes lesson. Sports Quest was great at weaving sport & the theme into a life lesson. These sessions were so interesting that I didn’t want to miss them. I know that they were beneficial to me & my son! Our boys were typical young men that made good and bad decision as they grew up. But I feel strongly that Sports Quest had a positive impact on their development. Our players were  “gentlemen competitors” that showed respect & sportsmanship to opposing players, coaches, & referees. They acted in a mature manner that only got better with age. While good parents played an important part, I strongly believe this mature way also came from years of seeing the actions and hearing the messages of Sports Quest.” Michael Ross – Assistant Coach, TUFC Westside ‘95 Boys
