Leadership Team – Roles and Responsibilities
(as outlined by Upward Sports)

The League Director – Will oversee the league creation and be the contact person for us to help guide you through that process. Unless delegated, this will include utilizing player management software, to draft teams, manage rosters, scheduling, and placing your league order. The League Director will oversee all of the commissioners and delegate the duties accordingly. In addition, this position requires someone who is willing to continually cast the vision of the ministry and WHY this is MORE THAN a sports league.

Advertising and Halftime Commissioner – Before the season begins, this position will help saturate your community with awareness by distributing marketing materials into the community while also building a digital presence through web and social media platforms
As the halftime commissioner, it is this position’s responsibility to make sure activities take place at the halftime of every game hour. Finding someone to lead these activities at each halftime is the halftime commissioner’s primary focus. The best method for finding people to lead your halftimes is to recruit eight halftime captains – one for each week of games. It will be the responsibility of these halftime captains to find halftime leaders to run the activities on their assigned game day.

Prayer and Host Commissioner – The Prayer commissioner is responsible for recruiting prayer partners, distributing reminders, hold a prayer kickoff meeting, communicate throughout the season with prayer partners.
As the host commissioner, you have two important and unique roles. Your first responsibility is to find a family on each team in your league to serve as a host family to those parents on the team that are not currently connected with a local church. As you seek to reach your community for Christ, it is important to know that many of the families in your league not associated with a church may be looking for a place to belong.

We believe that the best way to get families connected is to establish relationships with those in your church body that have common ground, which is being a parent of an Upward Sports Participant. It is through these relationships that these parents are more likely to connect to what your church has to offer. As a pastor once said, “the people in your community are not looking for a friendly church, they’re looking for friends.”
The second responsibility of the host commissioner is to oversee follow-up process and coordinate with your church’s continuing outreach areas. Throughout the season, relationships will be established between parents, coaches and participants. However, when the season is over, it is not the time for these relationships to end. Follow-up is an essential piece of your Upward Sports Ministry. Without follow-up, the ministry loses much of its effectiveness. Follow-up provides the opportunity to encourage these people to become intentionally involved in a local church. This also provides a chance to address the uncertainties people may have with salvation and church in general.

Coach and Referee Commissioner – Recruit, Train, and evaluate coaches and referees – Upward Sports provides all coach training and evaluation resources.

The bottom line, the objective for each of these leadership roles should be to LOVE leaders in order for those leaders to SERVE athletes and their families in order to maximize the number of Gospel opportunities each season.

To accomplish this the candidate will disciple our young and senior teens, training them to influence their friends and family for Christ.

We believe that full time ministry is 45 + hours per week. We believe this to be important as our people work these hours and we expect our people to volunteer on top of that. Staff need to set the pace.

Specifics:

Lead and organize effective youth ministry implementing fellowship, biblical teaching, evangelism and discipleship.

Create local servant ministry opportunities and mission opportunities

Recruit and train volunteer youth staff with diverse gifts and personalities

Participate as needed or requested in the evaluation and development of the overall church ministry.

Because we are not convinced that our current teen ministry group is large enough to keep a youth pastor busy 45 hours per week, we will build secondary responsibilities around the candidates strengths and giftedness

Qualifications and Position Requirements:

One who exhibits a personal and growing relationship with God, a teachable spirit, and a healthy family life
