Our Basketball Tournaments
God’s Posse Ministries hosted it’s first 3 on 3 basketball tournament Sept 4, 2004. In our first tournament we had four teams in attendance. The following year 2005, our tournament took a quantum leap to sixteen teams, four times the teams that attended the year prior.
It was in 2005 that we realized that we may be on to something pretty cool that would be of help to young men. That year Jonathan begin to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the players and six young men gave their lives to Jesus Christ. Over the last fourteen years our tournament has continued to grow in leaps and bounds, and young men have continued to give their hearts to Jesus, receiving him as their Lord and Savior.
Since we started back in 2004, God’s Posse Ministries 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament has witnessed almost 800 young men to come through our doors, out the 800 young men, raging in age from 9-18, we have witnessed 114 of them give their hearts to Jesus for the first time and be born again! The tournament has continued to grow at such a rate it is considered one of the fastest growing 3 on 3 basketball tournament of it’s kind in the county.

“This is by far the nicest 3-On-3 Basketball tournament I’ve ever been in, and I’ve been in them all– Nike, AAU, and even Reebok– and this one is the best!”Clay Wages
“The first year I attended this tournament I didn’t know what to expect, as far as the level of competition; I was truly blown away by the talent there! All I gotta say is, you better bring your A-game”Ryan Jones
“Jonathan, I thought you’d like to know that I was at the pool this evening, and saw a neighbor who said that they had taken their son to an “AWESOME” 3-On-3 tournament today. I realized it was your tournament that I had created the website for, and, she told me that her son came to Christ during the tournament!”John Lehmberg
