Program Description

Founded in 1998, Memphis Athletic Ministries (MAM) exists to coach, grow, and lead the youth of Memphis by helping them discover their identity in Christ and their purpose in the community. MAM's vision is to see identity found, hope restored, and lives changed.

  • Holistic development programming - We build the body, mind and spirit of our youth.
  • Godly community influence - We impact our city through the power of the gospel.
