God has a purpose...


The story of Cultivate Sports is really a radical story of how God gave two young college students a heart to serve the next generation..


Phil Beardslee and Daniel Herr explain the work God did in their life to bring them back to Greenville, South Carolina to start Cultivate Sports. They want to invite you to take a walk through their amazing journey and marvel at God's faithfulness.   


It all started in the summer of 2012, God connected Dan and Phil through High Point Camp. Phil was a junior at Bob Jones University (BJU) and spent his summer counseling students at the camp. 


Dan, a high school senior at High Point Academy,

was gearing up for the upcoming BJU soccer season by training together with Phil. Throughout this time, God was creating a friendship that would later allow both of them to impact lives for Jesus through sports.
