Hoops of Hope Ministry

Basketball Ministry

Hoops of Hope Basketball Ministry was founded by Brent "Hoops" Fuqua on February 28, 1996 after he had spent five years doing sports ministry with Athletes in Action and on his own. "Hoops" began Hoops of Hope because he believes that sports are some of the greatest evangelical tools we have at our disposal.

Eighty percent of the world's almost 6 billion people are active participants or spectators of sports. Basketball, in particular, is extremely popular in the United States and has grown phenomenally throughout the world due to the 'Dream Team' and the NBA.

Many people will go to a basketball game, clinic or exhibition that would never go to a church and this is when we get the opportunity to share the gospel.

Hoops of Hope has seen lives of many people changed when they are confronted with the Truth of who Jesus Christ is and how He can change their lives. That is what Hoops of Hope is all about; reaching the world with the hope of Christ through the sport of basketball.

Only about one third of the world's population claims to be Christian. With such an awesome opportunity to take the good news of Christ to the world, we must make every effort to reach them where they are. Our society is so sports crazy that this is one of the most effective ways to do that.

With such a need, our only response can be "yes". Isaiah 6:8 says, "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" If you are interested in having Hoops of Hope do a basketball clinic, assembly or seminar, please contact Executive Speakers Bureau 800-754-9404.
