When I was a church planter in Orting, WA, I was committed to missional-living in the city. After a solid year of participation in our city’s Chamber of Commerce, I had built enough trust with the Mayor that I was asked to organize a 3 on 3 basketball tournament for the summer festival.

What a great opporuntiy.

The city paid the bills, the city paid for the ads and my church had the chance to be the hands of feet of Jesus Christ. Our tournament featured dozens of teams, supported hundreds of participants, and entertained thousands of spectators—all for the glory of Christ.
