A Message from Coach Rick Schwarz

It is hard to believe that this is my 18th year serving as the Gym-Masters coach . What a privilege to have trained and mentored so many Southern acrobats!

One of my dreams when I started coaching at Southern was to have the team participate in mission trips. What began as a prayer request quickly turned into an answered prayer.

Over the past 17 years, we have spent 13 spring breaks working and performing for God. We have seen how God can use more than 40 young acrobats to touch so many lives.

I invite you to join hands with our current Gym-Masters team and show your support of our program by making a gift to support our Gym-Master mission trips. Every gift, big or small, makes a difference and brings us closer to reaching our goal

The Project

Gym-Masters have an opportunity this spring break (March 2-11, 2018) to return to the DR for a fifth time. The team will focus on transforming the existing shell of a building into a school. Our goal is to finish the first floor of the building. The rough estimate for materials is around $50,000. That is a lot of money to raise—more than I have ever attempted—but with God, all things are possible!

Whatever amount we raise will help support Gym-Master mission projects!

Help us succeed!

  • In fact, share it with everyone you know as we think it's a great idea, and the more people who know about it, the more likely we are to make this work out brilliantly.
