THE CROSSROADS OF 1AND1
Applying Baseball's Most Decisive Count to Young People's Lives
1and1 Ministries develops student-athletes to reach their highest achievements by supporting both personal and spiritual development, amidst a strong Christian network. 1and1 seeks to bless each individual with the boldness and confidence that faith in God grants. With the support system our organization provides, our student-athletes become leaders who change their communities.
WHO WE ARE
Developing A New Type of Leader
1and1 Ministries is a Christ-centered charity, dedicated to the growth of young athletes both on and off the diamond. Through our development initiatives, 1and1 assists young people in unlocking their full potential. We aim to create generations of faith-based leaders capable of changing his or her community, city, and country.
Our 4 Action Areas
Baseball Focused Development
We believe baseball is one of the most effective ways to reach and develop younger generations. In addition to placing individuals in fun and competitive environments, baseball also puts players in uncomfortable and high-stress situations. We teach our athletes how to effectively overcome these situations and apply lessons learned to real-world scenarios. Our players are able to work within teams, think critically and most importantly, engage their faith to lead them through any circumstance.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote the importance of quality education among our athletes. Our Country Directors use classroom grades and behavior performance as a determinate for baseball participation. As our athletes progress through our program, we assist them with finding internships, fellowships, and other opportunities to enhance their educational experiences.
Our greatest effort and measurement of our success is teaching young men and women the Gospel as well as developing Christ-centered leaders. It is most important to us that our athletes live by and through their faith. We pray our student-athletes' faith will guide them throughout all aspects of their life and ultimately lead others to God's Grace.
Creating Healthy Communities
At 1and1 Ministries, we believe improving the health of communities is one of the most effective ways of helping improve the lives of our student-athletes and their families. Whether through public health initiatives or taking care of patients directly, we know this teaches our young people service over self.
