This program is FUN: F- is for Faith (faith in God ), U- is for Unity (the children will learn about being a team and working as a team), N- is for Nurture (the children will learn sports skills in an encouraging environment).

We receive support from Calvary Bible, Riverlakes Community Church, Calvary Chapel Westbrook, Olive Drive Church, Christ's Church of the Valley, St. Philips, Ridgeview Church, The Oak Community Church, the Way Church and Bakersfield Christian High School and Westside Church of Christ,, who all help make this program happen.

FUN Sports was placed on John Bagala heart from God to run a youth sports program that put God First and play second . John has a BA degree in Recreation Administration and has worked with children for over 35 years. He was the Assistant Director for 12 years at Carmel Recreation and Parks Dept. for the town of Carmel, NY and has worked for many years for North of the River youth programs.

God placed it on his heart to put together a sports program that not only teaches Christian principle, but also teaches about Jesus Christ. John and his wife Rebecca have 3 children that you may see helping each week to keep this ministry going, so pray for them as a family.

Founder of FUN Sports John Bagala

Roman 10:17 - So faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God.John Bagala believes that we need to do just that: tell the kids about Jesus and his love. This organization is non profit ( 501c) Jesus Christ-based. To date FUN SPORTS has received only one grant from the Bank of Sierra in 2006. We operate entirely on what comes in through donations and sign-ups for sports programs. We do have a Board of Directors and our Advisory Board meets quarterly.

We believe every child should be able to play. We all want to make it about the children at FUN SPORTS. " FUN SPORTS is not a business but a ministry for Jesus Christ in my eyes. I will always stand for Jesus Christ", states John Bagala. 

FUN SPORTS started in the fall of 2005 with 130 children. Today we have over 850 children and growing in our program. We contribute all our growth to Jesus and honoring God in all we do! Many people ask John what he does for a living. John's reply is simple, "I preach the gospels of Jesus to everyone in our sports programs." John left a good job with benefits to run this ministry in the name of Jesus. This is his life - telling parents, kids and anyone that listens about Jesus and the love of God. "My reward is not a high paying job, but if one child or parent comes to know Jesus as Lord and Savior then that is my reward". 

So come on and sign up for a great youth sports program that really does put God FIRST and have FUN doing it. We hope you will support FUN SPORTS and God Bless you all. If you would like to help this great ministry, please call 378-2749 with your name and how you would like to help. God Bless!
