Indianapolis

HOW WE STARTED
For ten years, Indianapolis served as the SportQuest headquarter office, handling the day-to-day communication, finances, PR, and administrative needs of the ministry. In 2017 things shifted as the ministry began to strategically decentralize much of its administrative oversight in order to empower local leaders as well as to free up the Indianapolis team to pursue local mission opportunities. As things shifted in the ministry, so did people. Becky Bowden, one of our SportQuest alumni, felt God’s calling to join the SQ staff in 2016 and moved to Indianapolis to help with the shift and begin local ministry initiatives in the area. Her background in coaching and athletic administration along with her heart for discipleship are helping to build an Indianapolis city team in order to train and challenge athletes and leaders to live missionally.

WHAT WE’RE DOING

The vision for SportQuest Indianapolis is to reach out to youth on the west side of Indy through sports. Becky has put together a team of people who are passionate about God and sports that meet together to host events, disciple, and pray for the youth in this city. Becky also coaches at the middle school level, implementing spiritual truths and life skills into her training. Lastly, she heads up a recreational basketball league at one of the local churches that uses sports as a mission field to lead children to Christ and influence their families. But her role doesn’t stop in Indianapolis. During the summer she helps lead PWP projects and continues to invest in the athletes that travel throughout the year through weekly Bible studies and one-on-one discipleship through skype. She also serves on the Global Communication Team as the Alumni Discipleship Coordinator and the PWP Project Administrator. 

Kent Susud, founder and president of SportQuest, and his wife Michelle also live in Indianapolis and help build the Kingdom in other ways. Michelle leads a weekly Bible study with other moms in the area, provides support and encouragement for all the staff and their wives, and handles the finances of the ministry. Kent provides oversight for SportQuest but is also the CEO of The 4th Musketeer, a movement that challenges and inspires every man’s heart and fights for waves of justice around the world.
  

WHERE WE’RE GOING

 

As the Indianapolis city team continues to form and grow, Becky intends on training local leaders with tools and resources that will equip others to be missional within their own sphere of influence. She will continue to disciple athletes with the intention of leading them to begin their own discipleship groups in their communities. She is also planning ways to continue to engage the kids that play in the basketball league after the season is over with events throughout the year.
