Why Fishing?

Why is fishing a great way to reach people for Christ?

  • 60 million people fish in the U.S. each year.  15 million of those are children and youth.
  • Fishing is a universal sport.  Anyone can participate in it regardless of who they are or where they come from.
  • Fishing has many natural connections and parallels to faith.
  • Children, between the ages of 5 and 13, are more likely to come to Christ if they hear the word and are discipled at a young age.
  • Fishing isn't typically considered a "churchy" activity.
  • Fishing offers the opportunity to bring families together and build strong Christian relationships.
  • The outdoors is a great place to connect with God, the Creator.
