Athletic Ministry


The Athletic Ministry’s vision is: “Honoring God through physical fitness.” Their mission is to “develop the mind, body, and spirit by providing opportunities for individuals and organized teams to participate in athletic activities. We will build unity throughout the Body of Christ and the community; ultimately honoring God with our bodies and allowing our bodies to be a temple of God. (1st Corinthians 6:19-20 & Ephesians 4:3 KJV)

The Athletic Ministry of Mt. Zion Baptist Church works to all church and community members to practice the presence of Christ, not only in sports & recreational activities…but in their daily lives.


One of our main programs is the annual Dr. Charles H. Lewis Golf Outing, which benefits local organizations that focus on youth empowerment and we also lend our support to the church’s youth basketball team the ‘Mt. Zion Blues.’
