Athletic Ministry


Our Athletic Ministry engages youth of various ages in character building sports activities. The 13-15 age group finished first in the Catoosa County Basketball League. Our baseball team participated in the city’s RBI program. We played in the 11-12 age group and finished in second place. Future plans include working with grades 1 through 4 in both basketball and baseball. We will have ages 7 through 12 participating in the RBI Program.

Meet Coach Derring

"It has been my pleasure to serve SMBC as a member and subsequently deacon for over twenty years.  As a self-employed entrepreneur, I have been blessed to manage my own business for several decades.  In so doing, I have periodically employed some of our members.  

Having the opportunity to serve as the coach of our Athletic Ministry has been a blessing.  Working with our young people allows me to impact them through team building experiences and physical development."
