Developing a core leadership team for men’s ministry within your church is easy when you tap into the common passion men share for the outdoors and their Christian values – and it begins by introducing to them the first edition of the magazine !
Each monthly edition features stories and projects that will intrigue and engaged men in better understanding men’s ministry through their passions.

Vision of CSF
“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God” (Psalms 42:1, NIV)
In 1994, several Christian sportsmen in Atlanta, Georgia sought God’s guidance for a way to unite their passion for the outdoors and their desire to reach men with the Gospel. As church leaders and successful businessmen, they shared a burden for reaching fellow sportsmen and realized the impact that sin continues to bring upon our world. As Christian Sportsmen enjoy the refreshment that God gives to them in quiet moments surrounded by His majestic, undisturbed creation, it is difficult to imagine how any man can be alone in God’s great outdoors and not desire to know the One who spoke it into existence.Their burden became focused in prayer and developed into a well-defined mission as an important part in fulfilling God’s “vision” for reaching outdoorsmen with the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. God wants to unite Christian outdoorsmen from various denominational backgrounds for this purpose through local chapters linked into an international fellowship. God desires that men be united through their shared love for Jesus Christ and common interest in outdoor sports.In the fall of 1994, the Christian Sportsmen’s Fellowship was launched. Our purpose is to encourage discipleship and fellowship of believers by training them to share personal testimonies of God’s life-changing power with others. The organization provides the training and forums for sharing personal testimonies of God’s transforming power and uses outdoor sports as the lure for reaching millions of outdoorsmen in the U.S. and abroad.
The three primary functions of the church include evangelism, discipleship and missions and are supported through CSF’s outreach approach using the terminology:
Fellowship Together – Discover Christ – Become Passionate.
CSF outreach forums introduce sportsmen to Jesus Christ through the common goals found among outdoorsmen in support of our:
Christian Heritage – Outdoors Conservation – and Responsible Ethics.
Relationships are then established to encourage, equip then engage Christian sportsmen in following a discipling track called “Climbing Legacy Mountain”.

Mandate of CSF
In view of environmental concerns, we as Christian sportsmen accept our obligation to preserve our natural resources and to protect and perpetuate every living species, especially those which are endangered. It remains our biblical convictions that proper ethical behavior when pursuing game, fish or foul will ensure that future generations will continue to enjoy the hunting and fishing privileges and opportunities that we possess today. [Gen. 1:27-30; Gen. 9:1-3]
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’ “Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them”, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. The fear and dread of you will fall upon all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon every creature that moves along the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything’.” (Gen. 1:27-28, Gen 9:1-3 NIV)
