Sports Leadership Commitment

Life change happens best in the context of relationships. This sport organization exists to worship God through sport. In other words, we strive to be the standout recreational activity in the Dallas area for the excellence, excitement and intentionality that we exhibit in every area. Serving in leadership role is a privilege and should be taken seriously. While we are all continually in need of God’s grace as we grow in our relationships with Christ, Scripture places a high calling on those in leadership. Before stepping up to lead others we must first learn to lead ourselves well by the power of the Holy Spirit. The following are necessary for someone being considered for leadership: 

  1. They exhibit the same excitement, and commitment to seeking the “lost”, the “blind”, and the “lame” as Jesus did as well as all those who call him Lord and Savior. (Matthew 28:18-20, Matt. 22:36-40, John 13:34-35)
  2. They are a member or in pursuit of membership at a church who biblically admonishes, encourages, and patiently helps stimulate a group of believers to love and good deeds. (Hebrews 13:17, 1 Thess. 5:12-14, Heb. 10:24-25) 
  3. They do not simply consider appearances (2 Cor. 5:16), but show more concern for salvation of ones soul than their own desires (Phil. 2:4); discarding their personal liberty in order to strengthen and care for a brother. (Gen. 4:9, 1 Cor. 10:23-33) 
  4. They live above reproach in their dating relationships, their use of alcohol, and their conduct on the field. Pursue Christ in the way you Mate; Partake; and Debate. (2 Tim 2:22; Col. 4:5,6; Titus 3:1-2) 
  5. The leader must be committed to the Scriptural principles laid out below: 
  • Devote daily to a personal relationship with Jesus (John 15:5 - "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”)
  • Pursue deep relationships with Christ followers, based on love and acceptance (Romans 12:10 - "Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor.”)
  • Offer and receive biblical counsel in all areas of life (2 Timothy 3:16,17 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”)
  • Engage intentionally with our ministry and the world to make disciples (Matthew 28:19–20 - "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”)
