Sportsmen’s Ministry

The purpose of the Sportsmen’s Ministry is to glorify God and provide a network of support and fellowship across our common interests and/or needs. If you’re an outdoors person, this is a great way to “get involved” and meet others that share a common love of God’s creation.

The Sportsmen’s Ministry was established in 2003 and will continue as the Lord gives direction to the ministry team and senior leadership at Fox River.

We are excited that you are interested in this unique ministry and are considering attending one of our events.

To learn more about the Sportsmen’s Ministry, please e-mail us at

God bless you as you enjoy His great outdoors!

Sharing the love of God through a common passion for His creation: the pursuit of the hunt or the tug on the line.

Realizing that we are all sinners to whom God has extended His grace because He first loved us, the sportsmen of Fox River Christian Church invite you to find out more about our church where you matter to us because… you matter to God!
