Why Global? Why Baseball?
Sports intersect with the lives of countless people across the world. The majority of world’s population are actively engaged in sports and have family members who enjoy sports. They are probably fans who enjoy sports as occasional entertainment. Baseball’s popularity is growing across the globe and it is becoming a common language spoken in many places.
Since 2001 Global Youth Baseball Federation has utilized the popularity of baseball to share good news across the world. With the help of talented and godly pros and college coaches, many personal testimonies of faith were heard across the fields in Cuba, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Germany, Brazil, Kosovo, Nicaragua, China, Venezuela, Liberia, Mexico, Hungary and Poland.
The game of baseball has become a global competition and many nations are developing their own programs, seeking training for their coaches and players. Global Baseball offers experienced professional staff who can make a difference in countries that need help.
Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations." So why not do it through baseball?" Baseball opens many doors and becomes the common ground for building relationships. Our staff members have a passion to make Jesus known throughout the world and they also know the game. They receive high level professional training and in turn train others. They have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many young people. They take their bats and gloves and become the feet upon the mountains and on the fields, that bring not just baseball but Good News to the world.
GYBF is a leader in baseball development around the world. We invite individuals and groups to join us, to serve and to volunteer besides us as we take Baseball and Good News across the globe.
