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.

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!

Events Guide

Pheasant Hunt January 8th - 10th, 2016 (Annual Winter Event)

Join us at Wern Valley for fun and fellowship as we hunt one of God’s most beautiful game birds, the ring-necked pheasant. We supply lunch, dogs and guides over a 3 day period that will be fun and safe. This event is open to all family and friends of Fox River. Youth are encouraged to participate and must have completed their Hunter Safety classes. If you have your own hunting dog and want to use him/her for your own team, you are welcome to do so but we must be notified of this. Please send all inquiries to:


European Pheasant Tower Shoot, Sunday, March 13th, 2016

The annual tower shoot provides an opportunity for hunters to experience the thrill of pheasants flying at full speed towards your station while you try to match your shooting skills against their evasive instincts. Shooters rotate around a tower from where the pheasants are launched. Following this event, you’re welcome to hunt the surrounding fields for escapees! Please send all inquiries to:
