Coach Odle's Full Court Press - Taylor University and Sports Evangelism

Item Number: BK33

Description:

By Jessica Rousselow-Winquist and Alan H. Winquist. Softbound.

The year 2002 marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of Venture for Victory (VV) by Don Odle, former basketball coach at Taylor University. Coach Odle's Full Court Press describes this man's role as the central figure in the unfolding early development of sports evangelism which began with a simple phone call in February 1952. Despite daunting obstacles, Coach Odle successfully displayed "the power of one" by seizing the opportunity to bring a Christian basketball team to East Asia during the summer of 1952. From that humble beginning, VV's fame gradually spread. "The power of one" was transformed in "the power of many." Today using athletics as a meansto further Christ's message has become a worldwide phenomenon. Don Odle can rightfully be called "the father of sports evangelism."
