How Do I Become A Sports Ministry Leader?

"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up." Ephesians 4:11-12

Thank you for your interest in joining the leadership of Red Rocks Sports Ministry. Leaders are vital to fulfilling our mission to help people stay active both physically and spiritually! Any Red Rocks Church member wishing to 1.) help lead an existing sports program or 2.) begin a new program must submit his/her proposal to the church, undergo an approval process, and meet all requirements for ministry leadership before proceeding. This is to ensure that you are not only equipped for the leadership experience ahead of you, but also to support you once the ministry has begun and to encourage the success of your ministry goals. Please read through the entire outline and become familiar with all steps, requirements, and responsibilities of Red Rocks Sports leadership before embarking on this approval process. Please also be aware that approval for new ministries is subject to the discretion of pastoral and director-level leadership.


Leaders must adhere to our sports ministry vision:

  • CONNECT WITH OTHERS: Build an environment which is conducive to initiating and developing new relationships.
  • CONNECT WITH OUR COMMUNITY: Connect members of our sports programs with local ministries/organizations in ongoing and consistent efforts to serve those whom Jesus called "the least of these."
  • CONNECT OTHERS TO GOD: Use the sports platform as any easy approach for Red Rocks Church members to invite unchurched friends and community members.

Opportunities to serve in leadership:

  • League Leaders
  • League Chaplains
  • Sponsorship Sales/Marketing
  • Youth Camp/Clinic Organizers
  • Outdoor Group Organizers
  • Technology Advocates - website editing, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Photographers/Videographers (amateur or professional)
