Sports are a great way to connect children to Christ and other children. Upward ministry provides Basketball, Cheerleading, and Soccer.

Our Vision: Using sports, we will live out Jesus' challenge in the Great Commission because " Somewhere in a cave the story about a Man needs to be told."

Our Mission: To introduce children to Jesus Christ by creating opportunities to serve through sports.

Welcome to the First Baptist Wentzville's Upward Sports Ministry!

Sports are a great way for children to learn about teamwork, respect for authority and sportsmanship. The sad part is all those things are being lost in today's sporting society. With an Upward Sport, these key essentials are included to create the best sporting experience for every child who participates. Upward Sports are designed to reveal the winner in every child. The 2014 season marks the sixth season for Upward Sports here at FBCW, and we're excited to bring you a sports experience like no other.
