For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Galatians 5:13
Currently the 12th Man Ministry of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church is a regional ministry involved in a variety of high school sports throughout Georgia. Since every school is different, we work with the coaching staffs to customize our ministry to best meet their needs. The number “1” priority is to make a difference in people lives.
What does a 12th Man do?
- A 12th Man will serve in any capacity of an organization just to show the example of Jesus through serving
- A 12th Man will take care of fixing sports equipment so that a coach can be freed up to coach.
- A 12th Man will go through training so that there will nothing he or she is not ready for when asked to do.
- A 12th Man will be CPR certified
- A 12th Man will know the basics of taping ankles and thumbs
- A 12th Man will be ready to share a devotion or prayer when asked
- A 12th Man will do laundry
- A 12th Man will show up early and stay late
- A 12th Man will not put him/herself in a compromising situation with a student.
- A 12th Man is an extension of the coaching staff
- A 12th Man will work under the leadership of the head coach or their representative
- A 12th Man will be willing to put others needs before his or hers
If someone is interested in serving, and they don’t feel that they have to have a platform to speak, and they are willing just to “be real”, and willing to be a real Christian, then the 12th Man ministry is definitely a ministry to check out.
