The Tonal Defenders Ministry Team is made up of members from the Men’s Soccer team. Throughout the year, they conduct soccer clinics in the area and minister in local churches through singing, playing instrumental music, teaching, and preaching. Their desire for ministry is two-fold: to connect with communities by using soccer as an outreach tool and to encourage local churches through music and preaching.
The group started when the idea was proposed to develop the team’s tradition of singing before each game into a full-blown ministry. With the assistance of Jim Harrison, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, they schedule churches to visit during the course of the year. In addition to their ministry in churches, the Tonal Defenders put on soccer clinics in Watertown on different Saturdays throughout the year. Several of the players also put on clinics for the local teams of the Watertown Soccer Club on a continuing basis.
