James Naismith (1861 - 1931) - Inventor of Basketball/Minister
“To win men for the Master through the gym.”
In December 1891 Dr. James Naismith invented the game of basketball. Dr. Naismith’s invention came during the winter when he came up with an indoor game to attract young men during the harsh New England winters – in order to share the gospel on a year-round basis. With nothing more than a soccer ball, two empty peach baskets, a ladder and ten handwritten rules he created a game that would become the most watched and played indoor sport in the world.
With now over 450 million players and fans across the World, Basketball can still be used as a way to share the gospel with people. What started with James Naismith needs to continue until all have heard the name of Jesus.
