HEAD OF SPORT AND FAITH
Play sports, talk life.
Fluff it. Duff it. Score it. Smash it. Whatever you do, just give it a go. That’s our motto for sport and for life. We’re for jumping right in and going on new adventures together, as a team.
We believe that being more active, like the Christian faith, can change people’s lives forever. And so we’re here to get everyone moving and show them that things are a lot more fun when we’re kicking, diving, riding, rolling, running and jumping around together.
