Sweaty Sheep

“Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming down stairs, but sometimes he feels there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it.”

-Winnie the Pooh


Too often we forget there is more than one way to do "church!"  What if there was a community who consistently sought NEW, interactive,  inclusive and FUN ways of EXPERIENCING God?  Welcome to Sweaty Sheep Ministries... a diverse flock of openminded, openhearted, and open-armed sojourners who see faith as a journey, not a destination.  

We do Church differently here! Team Sweaty Sheep unites a passionate community through the simple median of Play and the excitement of exploration!  We're a community of possibilities, a community embracing the philosophy of Re-Creation through Recreation.  Be it through worship, travel, laughter, prayer, running, dancing, or the like we seek to enjoying life  by embracing the "abundance" Jesus yearned for us to know. From interactive worship services (indoors and outdoors) to Bible studies, from pre-race prayers to post-race parties, from mission trips to gardening, from quiet prayer and yoga to loud concerts and marathons- we seek to experience the divine in new, exciting, and unique ways!

Our Mission is to pursue recreation as a means of breaking socio-economic and faith barriers as we seek to unify the community by embracing its diversity.

In Louisville, Sweaty Sheep recently launched runPossible, a program partnered with St. Vincent De Paul that provides mentorship and wellness opportunities to homeless individuals working towards sobriety and self-sustainability by pairing each with local community members such as YOU.  Through running and walking, Yoga, nutritional education, and personal relationships runPossible initiates a self-transformation process through exercise and wellness that aids in the development of life changing friendships and self-confidence.
Every Tuesday we meet for a walk/jog at 6:15pm and on Thursdays an 11am recovery themed Yoga class hosted by the 502 Power Yoga crew!  Both at 1029 s Preston street in the SVDP community Development center
