Steve Quatro has been training church leaders how to develop effective church sports ministries full time since 1992. He speaks regularly at sports ministry and pastors' conferences. Since 2006 Steve has taught sports ministry at Azusa Pacific University. Steve married Tina in 1974; they have three adult children and three grandsons (and counting ). It has been my privilege to be involved in Kingdom work through the bridge of sports and recreation with Steve on three continents. His tunnel-vision focus on prayerful "evangelism has been his continual "soap box." This is a must read for every Senior Pastor, Sports Minister and sports ministry volunteer. Thank you, Steve, for putting these principles in print to help churches develop simple and effective sports outreach efforts. Greg Linville Executive Director, Church Sports and Recreation Ministers Professor of Sports Ministry, Malone College Steve Quatro has been a leader in sports ministry since the early 1990's. Intentional Outreach, refines church sport and recreation ministry down to the basics in order to keep it focused, simple, and evangelistically effective. Rodger Oswald Executive Director, Church Sports International Our church has intentionally incorporated sports into many of our local outreach efforts to the end that currently the highest percentage of our congregation had their initial contact with our church through our sports activities. The principles outlined in Steve's book, Intentional Outreach, are a key part of our sports outreach efforts and I recommend them highly for any church using sports to reach out. Dave Burns Senior Pastor, Hillside Community Church Virtually every church in America (and a rapidly growing number around the world) employs sport or recreation activities to accomplish its mission. This book provides to pastors and lay-leaders simple and Biblically-sound guidelines to transform their sports and recreation activities into outreach vehicles that yield measureable results.
