Awards Nights and Banquets
David and Teesha feel blessed to have entertained and inspired thousands of people through their exciting, thrilling, and moving presentations at Upward Award Nights and banquets.
David and Teesha are huge fans of Upward and the opportunities for evangelism through sports that this incredible ministry provides. From elementary school through college, both David and Teesha were very involved with organized sports. Upon learning about Upward, and their emphasis on Christ-likeness and good sportsmanship, they became eager to find out more and learn how they could be a part of it. This shared passion for evangelism and excellence has lead to David and Teesha’s involvement with one of the highlights of many Upward seasons – the Awards Night.
In the Upward program the bottom line is seeing hearts and lives changed. This is the focus, even over winning championships. Over the course of a season many people dedicate endless hours to ensuring its success. From Upward Directors, coaches, referees, players, parents, and volunteers of all types; there is an incredible amount of energy and devotion put into a successful program. It is David and Teesha’s desire to serve Upward leagues and churches by ensuring that this same passion is put into the Awards Night.
