Follow five different athletes at the University of New Hampshire as they share how pursuing Jesus has impacted their lives, their teams, and the culture of the athletic community.   

In this series, we look at five critical encounters throughout scripture that people had with Jesus, how they responded, and the invitation God is challenging us with personally and with our teammates.  A Missional Discipleship Cycle refers to a sequence on how to engage scripture through hearing the word, respond actively to what you have heard, and debrief & interpret how you (and others) responded in mission.

In stage 2, we will be looking at critical topics for athletes to go deeper with God and be challenged to grow such as identity, lordship, and racial tensions with specific invitations for you and your teammates to engage these issues.

A five-week GIG taken from the first few chapters of Luke’s account of Jesus’ life and ministry. Each study looks at an individual who had a radical encounter with Jesus and came to know him better.

In this GIG we will be looking at several parables or stories that Jesus taught about on the Kingdom of God, a topic he often talked about. We look at the meaning and characteristics of each parable and ask the question, “Are you in?”

A look at several parables that Jesus told.  Each study will focus on the theme of the Kingdom of God, will have something to say about what people in the Kingdom are like, and what it means to be a part of it.  As we compare these stories with our lives, we will know with greater certainty if we are “in” the Kingdom of God—or not.

We look at a number of the “I am” statements Jesus recorded in the Gospel of John.  Looking at these direct claims Jesus made, are they true?  If they aren’t, we will be left to believe that Jesus was either a liar or a lunatic.  If they are true, however–and Jesus is who he said he was–this should radically affect our lives.  

God has a bigger plan for the world: working for redemption and using people from all over the world to bring justice, hope, and good news. It is crucial to the gospel to provide for people in need, but also this is what will help you see God on earth.

Man Up is a four-week Bible study on Anger, Sex, Power, and Money.  This study looks at what Jesus or Scripture has to say about these topics and what it might look like in today’s culture.

These team chapels are four short Bible studies that engage athletes and their teammates with topics of identity, preserverance, forgiveness and how these are relevant to their teams and lives.   

One of the most important questions in life is: “What is our response to Jesus?”  In this GIG, we look at people who had different responses to Jesus and ask the question, “How do we respond to him?”

Use this GIG after screening LINSANITY, which documents pro basketball phenom Jeremy Lin’s story.  We look at the several different themes that emerge throughout the documentary and in Jeremy’s life.
