2017 3rd annual Fundraiser  brunch

For the past 4 years, Cross-Training Athletes into Believers (CTAB) has played an important role in our community, by utilizing basketball training as a way to empower student-athletes on and off the basketball court.   This important work is supported largely by the trainees and the backing of generous donors who contribute to our organization.  


While this has been a blessing, reliance on others has also inhibited the organization’s ability for long-term scheduling and planning.  With our own facility, CTAB will be able to more efficiently and effectively execute its mission to empower youth on and off the court now and into the future.

So please, join for our 3rd annual fundraiser brunch, held on June 10th, 2017.  Here we will detail our future endeavors as well as listen on a great inspirational message from player, coach, and mentor David Johnson.   This will be an exciting day of fellowship, music, food, and more!! This is a day YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!!
