I Am Third is a program involving our middle and high school basketball teams. These teams are put together for students who want to play basketball in a competitive environment but may not normally make the school team. This program has two goals. One, help students improve their basketball skills. Two, teach the idea that Jesus is first, others are second and I am third in each activity we do. Positive peer mentors are recruited to work with younger students to help reinforce this concept and provide a steady positive influence. Games are played against local youth groups, non-profits, teachers, youth leaders and community businesses.
