Using the colors of the “wordless book”, (which tell the story of the gospel), the J316 ball is a great tool for sharing the message of John 3:16. God continues to open doors for ministry as they move forward in obedience to creatively communicate the gospel through sports to the Nations of the world. J316 Ministries is involved with outreach summer camps, after school programs, short term mission trips, coaching, and chaplaincy ministry.
