Christ Our Redeemer Launches First Black Christian Sports Camp in Orange County
     Christ AME church is writing history as they host their first black Christian sports camp July 14-15 at Mader Dei High School in Santa Ana. 
 
Upwards of 100 boys and girls, aged 8-18, are set to attend the first black Christian sports camp in Orange County, July 14-15 at Mader Dei High School in Santa Ana. Professional athletes from the NBA, NFL and major league baseball are set to coach, including former Clippers player Keyon Dooling and Seattle Seahawks running back Tre Madden.  Former Olympic athletes will also be on hand to coach track and field.
The camp is the brainchild of Christ Our Redeemer AME Pastor Mark Whitfield with the assistance of Bishop Kevin Van.
“It’s called Victory Beyond the Game and we’re so excited,” Whitlock said. “Not only must we teach these kids how to succeed on the field, but we must mentor them to succeed in life, so we offer them the moral foundation and then we have partnered with professional athletes.”
