What’s the fastest growing sport in the US today? Pickleball! A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. Played as doubles or singles.
WEEKLY GAMES/LEAGUES – COMING SOON! Working on establishing a consistent time to play (Most likely Mondays and Fridays in 2020).
Co-ed, multi-generational indoor competitive dodgeball is coming in 2020! We’ll have our first open play date in March, and then build from there. We will have 2 courts and organize based on age and organized groups, going over rules between each game with an on court referee. That’s right… there are real rules in dodgeball! We can’t wait… so jump in.

Classes and events
Healthy, whole living in Christ. Revelation Wellness® is a non-profit ministry dedicated to educating and inspiring people to live healthy and whole lives in Christ so we can love others well. In 2007, we started our ministry at Living Streams Church in Phoenix, Arizona by providing “open to the community” fitness classes called Revelation Fitness. We desired to breathe fresh hope into the fitness world and provide a new way for people to meet together and grow in love for God and for one another (Isaiah 43:19).
Classes are coming to AOC this summer, thanks to Chris’ beautiful and amazing wife, Joan Jahng who will serve as our own Fitness Teacher and Gospel Preacher.

AOC hosts Upward Basketball every January-February/March, and Upwards Soccer every Spring or Fall. Upward Sports Recreation Programs offer a variety of opportunities for young athletes to discover and refine their athletic skills while cultivating a passion for the sport. Through age-appropriate team play, athletes begin to build positive character traits that will allow them to encourage, strengthen, and motivate themselves and their fellow teammates. As they learn and follow game rules, young athletes will also learn the value of sportsmanship with a healthy competitive spirit.
Upward Sports athletes experience the 360 Progression, which is a uniquely designed sports experience that develops the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. It is modeled in Luke 2:52 – “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” The 360 Progression helps young athletes discover and develop the skills they need to perform both on and off the field or court. It also creates individuals of strong character, confidence, and faith.
AOC hosts youth camps and classes year-round. Contact Chris for the exact calendar, and get involved with your family, or serve as a volunteer.

All our teams are built around assigned team captains who believe in reaching the lost in the name of Jesus Christ through the fantastic avenue of sports and recreation. Be one of our team captains and play with a deeper and united purpose. Be more than a player!
Couple things to understand as you play and serve on the AOC team. First and foremost is submission to the league rules, then your onsite team captains/league officials. Beyond that, accepting this call I am going to boldly ask you for a couple of personal favors…
1. Be the light! Pray together as a team and let the world see before and even after the games. With and for one another, for the game, everyone’s health and open hearts. Shine brightly! (Matt 5:14)
2. Be inviting! Shaking hands with your opponents is simply a great opportunity to invite them all to come and find us at church, via other leagues, groups and of course, Sunday services. (Mark 16:15)
3. Be the joy! Whether on a great team, or a not so good team, always represent victory and competition with Christlikeness. Don’t sweat the small stuff, be that team that everyone likes to play, because it’s tough, fun and both #1 and #2! Athletes respect greatness, dignity and effort. Go get it! (Romans 15:13)
4. Be memorable! Take pictures! Help me share what we’re doing for prayer and awareness. Share stories with me, join up before or after games (be inviting!) and keep me posted! I want to share game results and photos every week after the games! (John 13:35)
Email Chris Jahng for more information.
We can always use more help. Come and serve, meet great people, be inviting and shine brightly as His lights everywhere we go and play! Setup/cleanup is always helpful, food service is fantastic, planning and ideas are awesome, and simply being there to help take over nights for Chris when he can’t be there are all some various ways to just get involved, beyond playing! Contact Chris for more info!
You can also serve as an Upwards coach or referee for Basketball and Soccer, teaching and guiding the kids and families through the ministry. You can also volunteer to monitor at an ATX Ballers camp, tournament or clinic we’re hosting.
Another great opportunity is to come and teach classes for the community, adults and youth alike with various sports. Currently we are teaching youth basketball and volleyball (youth and adults) based on requests.
