: We're not just playing games
Recreation is a fundamental part of life. Quest Recreation Outreach is committed to sharing the gospel through sports and recreation. Every activity is designed to share Christ with others, regardless of their age, ability, church affiliation and race.
At Quest Recreation Outreach, we believe that:
Our primary ministries currently are:
Camp Briarwood is a Christian summer camp for boys and girls. Since 1964 Camp Briarwood has operated day and overnight camps that blend the physical and the spiritual. Camp offers adventures which children never forget.
Briarwood Soccer Club gives children from kindergarten through high school a chance to be ambassadors for Christ through competitive and non-competitive teams. Players learn to play the world’s most popular sport, and, while having fun, they learn the skills to play with excellence and Christ-centered competitiveness. They learn to be leaders.
Upward Basketball, for boys and girls in grades K5-4, encourages athletic and spiritual development. Young players learn the fundamentals of the game and the importance of sportsmanship on and off the court through the use of scripture and prayer. Teams are designed to allow equal playing time for all children in a less-competitive environment.
Special Connections promotes equal concern for people with disabilities and their families by providing opportunities to share experiences that they often miss. We are "connecting the transforming power of the gospel to the lives of people touched by disability."
Urban Missions gives opportunities for:
· children from communities where organized sports aren’t available
· children who have a parent incarcerated
· children with disabilities to experience summer camp and sports in environments that change their lives and builds them up.
Overseas Missions give children and adults opportunities to use recreation to be ambassadors for Christ, taking their skills and the gospel to other countries. By continuing trips to the same mission fields, we deepen our spiritual investment and commitment. Partnering with local churches, we see children and adults who are reached for Christ continue to be discipled, one day becoming the spiritual leaders of their countries.
