The East Coast Sox Organization aspires to provide opportunities for our players and families to serve Jesus Christ through baseball. We want to fill the GREAT COMMISSION that Jesus has called us to by spreading his teachings to all:
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
We are achieving our missional goals through:
Hispaniola Mountain Ministries
During the Thanksgiving break, East Coast Sox will take players, parents and friends to serve in Barahona, Dominican Republic with Hispaniola Mountain Ministries.
The purpose and intent of the trip is to share the Word of Jesus Christ by training high school players, conducting clinics for youth players, providing baseball equipment to the players in need and giving out beans and rice to the community families in local area and Haitian villages.
Highlights of our 2019 Thanksgiving trip:
- 92 youth players gave their life to Christ
- Sox Officer, Eric Dubose, had his son’s Josiah and Jonah accept Christ on the trip
- Over 10 people from sugar cane villages/Haitian villages accepted Christ
- Sox families bought a lawn mower for Barahona youth baseball field
- Sox families got to meet the children who they sponsor thru HMM.
This is an annual mission trip that is open to all players, parents and friends of East Coast Sox.
