About Overwhelming victory

Flash Sale_edited.jpg

"despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us." - Romans 8:37

Overwhelming Victory is the resource branch of The Association of Church Sports and Recreation Ministries (CSRM), and encompasses a publishing house (Overwhelming Victory Press), a video and audio recording house (Overwhelming Victory Flix), & a new Sports Ministry Podcast Network (Overwhelming Victory Radio).


Overwhelming Victory Press and Flix were envisioned in 2010 to provide the foundational information that would serve as the basis for instructing and inspiring sports ministers to fulfill the Great Commission.  Now in its second decade, Overwhelming Victory has provided the Local Church Sports Outreach, Recreation, & Fitness ministers with ten original books, a growing number of blogs, and a library of video training series and podcasts.  


to see Sport, Recreation & Fitness Ministers (SR&F) effectively engaged in the Great Commission


to envision, create and disperse the theological, philosophical, and methodological foundations of Sports, Recreation, & Fitness that will empower and equip SR&F outreach ministers to reach all who are far from Jesus and His Church


All Overwhelming Victory Resources are developed out of the three-tier paradigm. Our Level 1 Theological-Truths effect our Level 2 Philosophical-Principles which effect our Level 3 Methodological-Models.
