“I affirm this Declaration and appreciate the framework it creates for the necessary and needed conversations. I have been passionate for and engaged in sport for as long as I can remember, and I resonate with the clarity of which the Declaration describes how sport can be brought to life in and through a proper understanding and context. I am all for the enjoyment of sport as the Declaration describes and embrace the powerful tool and witness it can be for the nations of the world to see genuine Christ followers living out their faith to the glory of God!”

Mark Householder

“As a New Jersey kid in the 1950’s, and a passionate Brooklyn Dodgers fan, I was aware of the dangers of idolatry–especially in my friends who cheered for the Yankees! Since those days, the dangers have intensified–so much so that we desperately need some careful spiritual reflection, informed by good theology, that issues in practical guidance for both the Christian community and the larger culture. This marvelous Declaration is not only an excellent start, but it actually sets forth the kind of wise insights that can move the process of discernment ahead!”
