WHAT IS MVP BASKETBALL & CHEERLEADING?
MVP Basketball and Cheerleading is one of the many ministries at Life Church geared to reach and serve our community. The MVP League started back in March 2013 with our first season having only 42 players and 9 coaches. Fast forward to our 2018 season, we had a total of 360 players alone for both our spring and fall seasons!
With the growth in players and coaches, God has given us many opportunities to make this more than a sports league. In addition to times of prayer at practice as well as the devotions and prayers at each game, there have been countless times that coaches and staff have had the opportunity to pray with players and their families as they were facing difficult moments in their lives.
While this league continues to do a great job at teaching sports, our primary desire is to make a difference in the lives of families in our community. We are so excited to see God continue to grow our MVP family and look forward to an incredible 2019 season!
