Gospel Award

Spiritual Growth is a core value of Genesis.  The leadership in the organization asked, “What is the most important thing we would want a Genesis athlete to know when they graduate?”  Paul provides an answer to this question in scripture. 

Paul shares with us in 1 Peter 3:15, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”  As a homeschool sports organization, we believe the most important thing is to know the gospel of Jesus Christ and be able to share this hope with others.

With this in mind, Genesis created a Gospel Award several years ago that can be earned by any high school athlete in Genesis.  We use Billy Graham ministries “Steps to Peace with God” material for gospel material.  Specifically, what scripture verses to use and what approach to use. 

 

An athlete can earn the Gospel Award if they meet the following requirements: 

  1. Memorize the bridge illustration and each of the scripture verses in Billy Graham’s “Steps to Peace with God (in the version of the Bible the athlete chooses).

  2. Share the gospel from memory drawing the bridge illustration and share each of the verses in "Steps to Peace with God' with the Director of Spiritual Growth for their sport.

  3. Share the gospel from memory with each of the verses above with his/her full team.

If an athlete is interested in earning this award, please have them reach out to their head coach.  Below is a list of the athletes who have earned the Gospel Award to date.
