Is paintball valid for ministry?

Between rounds of play, your guide will lead the group in faith-based debriefs. The nature of the sport makes for lively, provocative discussions. Each round will illustrate a spiritual lesson and encourages decision-making. Players explore such themes as:

  • Spiritual warfare
  • Building successful life strategies
  • Actions and consequences
  • Eternal destiny
  • Team-work and team-building

We quickly learned that strategy was the key to winning. Then it hit me, "If I’m going to make it for the long haul as a husband and a father, I had better be applying God’s strategy so I can be a real winner in life.
