Gospel Award

Gospel Award Patch.png

Spiritual Growth is a core value of Genesis.  The leadership in the organization asked, “What is the most important thing we 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 Christian organization, we believe it is most important to know the gospel of Jesus Christ and to be able to share this hope with others.

Several years ago, Genesis created the Gospel Award, which can be earned by any high school athlete.  We use Billy Graham ministry’s “Steps to Peace with God” as a model for understanding the Gospel and sharing it with others. 

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

  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, writing the bridge illustration and verbalizing each of the verses in "Steps to Peace with God,” while sharing with the Director of Spiritual Growth for their sport.

  3. Share the Gospel from memory, using each of the verses, with their full team.

Athletes interested in earning this award should reach out to their head coach.  Below is a list of the athletes who have earned the Gospel Award to date.
