“I have read Dr. Linville’s book Christmanship 4 times, and each time I gain new insights into how I should compete, and how to conduct our Sports Outreach here in South Africa.”

Previous investments also enabled Christmanship to be used in numerous College, University and Seminary courses. It is not too strong a statement to say it has begun to shape the theological landscape of competition, sport and Sports Outreach Ministry. It was most favorably reviewed by in the World Magazine in 2016 by Marvin Olasky of which the following is a summary of what he stated: “Many schools include Christmanship as a textbook…” and Dr. Olasky further recommended for more universities to use it.
fundamentals of sports outreach
Dr. Greg Linville is a pioneer in advancing sports ministry through the local church. His vision and passion to advance the kingdom through this book and his everyday life is evident. This book captures the essence of how important the future is for sports in the local church…and how to remain relevant in a changing world.
Neal Gossett – Director of Sports Outreach at South East Christian Church – Louisville, Kentucky
“I believe that in any movement, there needs to be an organized and common vision for the future. With countless years of experience and expertise, not just philosophically or theoretically, but also practically living out what he believes, Greg Linville gives us what’s needed for organized, biblically-based, and common vision for a movement in Sports, Recreation and Fitness Outreach Ministry. Sports Outreach Fundamentals is a must have for those desiring to join the movement of using sports as an outreach for pointing people on a journey with Jesus."
Chris Phillips - Lead Pastor, Journey Point Church; Former Local Church Sport & Rec Minister – Denver, Colorado
PUtting the church back in the game
"Putting The Church Back in the Game dares to state that sport, recreation and fitness is an ecclesiological issue. It’s time for The Church to “step up to the plate.” As usual Dr. Greg Linville challenges and provokes us winsomely and graciously. No one does it better."
Rev. Rob Burns – Founding Director, Missional Links Wales; Former Professional Soccer Player
"Challenging. Foundational. Necessary. Motivational. Dr. Greg Linville has given us a great tool to equip us theologically and practically to use sports as a key outreach tool in a time where our culture sadly becomes increasingly post-Christian….this is a must read book."
Rev. Danny Downing – Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia
