Our Mission

Promote the discovery of Jesus through sports.

I knew [my child] would enjoy the soccer part. He loves sports. What I didn’t expect was that he would equally enjoy the special attention and love he received from the coaches and staff at Upward. And so did I.

Our Values

  • The Expectation of God Moments

    We believe that God is at work all around us.
    “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” – Ephesians 2:10

  • The Life of Integrity

    We believe that how we live is more important than what we say.
    “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20

  • The Opportunity to Serve

    We believe that it is a privilege to serve others.
    “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:45

  • The Discipline of Excellence

    We believe in exceeding expectations.
    “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed; do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” – Colossians 3:17

The Priority of Children

We believe that every child is a winner.
“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14
