[Oak Creek, WI, March 25, 2023]- Discover Church will be hosting an outreach program on Saturday, March 25, 2023, from 8 AM to 7 PM. The event will be a 3-on-3 basketball tournament in support of raising money for missionaries as well as money for SHIFT, aYouth Program at Discover Church.
This event originated in 2019 and ever since has become a staple at Discover Church. People can register to make a team of up to 5 players. For each team that registers, there is a $75 fee that also covers a free T-shirt.
The proceeds of this event go towards a missions program called Speed The Light, which helps foreign missionaries to be provided with ways of transportation and other of their needs. The money will also be used to help send 6-12 graders to summer camps, retreats, and conventions, as well as equipment for outreaches.
Steve Yeldell, Youth Pastor at Dicover Church, said, “The tournament on average raises around $2,000. Whether it’s from the teams made, the cafe at the event or donations given, the money is used for missions.”
A game will be played one’s and two’s up to 15 points or a 15-minute timer whatever may happen first. The tournament is a double-elimination so you must lose twice to be out of the tournament. The winning team will receive a trophy, Chick-fil-A gift card and come back the following week to play the Oak Creek Fire and Police Departments in a basketball game. People are encouraged to come out and support.
In 2019, the tournament started out with around 20 teams. Last year the tournament hosted 45 teams in a competitive all-day battle. Both members of the church and members of the wider community participate in this tournament.The Sunday that follows the tournament the church sees many more seats filled in the church. With 4,000-6,000 attending members every Sunday the number will see substantial growth following the tournament.
