These hunts are intended for former players who want to come alongside Luke and the team at Peterson Outdoor Ministries to serve veterans by sharing the love of Jesus and the good news of his kingdom. We currently have three Wounded Veteran Hunts available for former players.
The Increase Conference is a landmark event in the lives of many marriages and lives of players and their wives. Always an unforgettable week of solid teaching and Spirit-filled worship that is guaranteed to help you grow in your understanding and relationship with Christ.
These duck hunting retreats are intended for current players and alumni, and we can host a few of these each year based on scheduling and availability. If you would like to put together a hunting retreat with some of your teammates or with a small group of players and alumni that you would like to spend more time with then we’d love to make that happen.
This retreat brings back that clubhouse atmosphere for the weekend, but the focus is obviously not on winning games or advancing careers; it’s about drawing closer to Jesus as the King and one another as His Kingdom people. Over the course of the weekend, we will provide times of teaching and plenty of hang time for us to walk through life situations and struggles common to the professional athlete.
We will spend time serving and staying with our missionary partner in Guatemala City. We will seek to build on our relationships that we have made in and around the city and continue to serve families through providing free baseball clinics for their kids and then also sharing the love of Christ as the reason we are doing so.
UPI and Professional Athletes Outreach (PAO) are teaming up with Compassion International for a MLB trip to the DR. This high impact trip will include ministry opportunities to serve children and mothers in Compassion’s Child Survival program and lead baseball clinics for Compassion youth teams.
On this annual trip to Italy, we run a week-long camp for several German teams and nearly 60 German ballplayers. This is a highly relational trip where we get time each day to share our stories and love for Jesus with the players and hold studies about Jesus for them after a full day of practice.
This retreat is currently an invitation only retreat based on the location and structure of the time together. Each day consists of fly fishing, teaching sessions around the table and just a great time of relaxing and hanging with other men who played baseball and love Jesus.
