Innercity Sports Ministries (ISM) is a sports ministry in the Inner City of Portland, OR. ISM’s purpose is to introduce and assist the youth of today, and their families to Jesus Christ through the avenue of a Sports program. ISM’s goal is to shape character, and develop leadership through a variety of structured sports activities, Bible studies, sports related field trips and more.
We offered a sports program and a after school progam to both boys and girls in grades fourth through twelfth. We met weekly at various gym and school locations where we’d come together for a time of sports activities and fellowship, through TEAMS (small groups) the youth come together with a coach/coaches to fellowship with other athletes (teammates) to meet around the bond of sports and the message of Christ. ISM members will had an opportunity to earn the right to attend a couple sports related field trips per month.
