Outreach Event Ideas

Slam Dunk Contest
I have to give credit to Chinese Christian Union Church in Chicago, IL for this idea, because I stole it from them. The idea is to bring in an adjustable basketball hoop. Then students can enter the slam-dunk competition in 7, 8, or 9-foot high divisions. You can format the contest however you like; the NBA Dunk Contest has each contestant perform 3 dunks and then a championship round with the top dunkers. Some high school and even middle school students can do some pretty neat stuff when the hoops are lowered. This event attracts a lot of people to watch, so we have a short evangelistic message before the final round.
