Building Believers, a 501c3 non-profit organization founded by Deon Hunter in the fall of 2001, is a Christian-Based Community Youth Sports Organization whose goal is to “Build Up” kids and their families through sport-specific training based on Biblical principles.
Through Building Believers, families are able to get involved in an array of programs geared toward personal and spiritual growth. Although the ability to play basketball is taught, it is more important that we give every child a fair chance to learn.
Our staff consists of former players and current high school coaches throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Each staff member goes through a criminal background check prior to becoming employed. Staff members are then trained to teach, motivate and inspire children to believe in themselves as well as others.
We take pride in offering programs to communities and areas that are less fortunate and have greater need than others. Our community based approach allows us to teach children how to become more effective youth leaders in their own community.
Deon Hunter has been asked to speak on a monthly basis at Denton High School FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes).
He feels privileged and honored to spend time with young teenage student-athletes; speaking with them about Jesus, sports, character building, integrity, personal responsibility, team work, academics, personal experiences, how walking with Christ has impacted his life and how to lead others to Christ by setting good examples.
Deon Hunter spoke at DHS FCA on September 7th, October 5th and will be speaking on November 9th.
