Recreation is a fundamental part of life. Every activity that we provide is open to all children and families, regardless of their church affiliation, socioeconomic status, or race. Quest is committed to continuing to provide the highest possible quality sports and recreation outreach programs to the community. We constantly measure each ministry program by asking one simple question, “Are we spreading the Gospel?”
Mission & Vision
Through sports and recreation we will:
- proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ
- help build the Body of Christ through the local church
- facilitate leadership development and spiritual growth
- serve with humility as examples of excellence to the community
- influence our culture and other cultures
- serve as a model and resource to other churches
For everyone pursuing recreation and competition, knowing Christ as Lord is the ultimate victory and living faithfully in Christ is the ultimate quest.

Upward Basketball, for boys and girls in grades K5-4, encourages athletic and spiritual development. Young players learn the fundamentals of the game and the importance of sportsmanship on and off the court through the use of scripture and prayer. Teams are designed to allow equal playing time for all children in a less-competitive environment.
Domestic Missions gives opportunities for 1) children from communities where organized sports aren’t available, 2) children who have a parent incarcerated 3) children with disabilities to experience summer camp and sports in environments that change their lives and builds them up.
Overseas Missions give children and adults opportunities to use recreation to be ambassadors for Christ, taking their skills and the Gospel to other countries. By continuing trips to the same mission fields, we deepen our spiritual investment and commitment. Partnering with local churches, we see children and adults who are reached for Christ continue to be discipled, one day becoming the spiritual leaders of their countries.
