Serving Our Community

 

Vision

 

To be an outreach arm of the Family Life Center and Athletic Ministry of Greater Imani to reach out and make a difference in the lives of players and parents by providing a nurturing environment for young men to grow, develop and provide activity during the time of year (summer) that is least supervised and structured for young people. To build a premiere baseball program by providing a comprehensive, fun environment for the youth of Greater Imani and the surrounding areas to participate in baseball as an organized Christian adventure is geared toward developing baseball skills, with a heavy emphasis on discipline, academics, sportsmanship and spiritual awareness, so to develop the whole person, not just a baseball player.

 

 

Program Overview

 

Since its inception, the Imani Sluggers program has always emphasized the principles of “Learning for Life”, the initiative being championed by Greater Imani Church and Christian Center (“GICCC”) and grew from one recreational baseball team of boys and girls with a 5 age year range - to 6 age appropriate competitive and fun teams. The rate at which these Sluggers make their high school teams continues to increase.
