Our Kids’ sport programs strive to change this pattern!

Sheldon Nusbaum

Upward Director

I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior when I was 11 years old. I am a graduate of Pillsbury Baptist Bible College with a degree in Business Administration and minor in sport coaching. God gave me the opportunity to play football, basketball and baseball at the college level. I am married to my wife Crystal and we have 2 daughters, Makayla and Megan. I serve in this ministry because I have a passion for youth and sports. I love to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through sports, and Upward gives me that opportunity. I have seen many children and adults come to Christ through this ministry and lives changed for the gospel. I serve because of my love for Christ, my love of sports, and my love for people. I am honored to be the League Director of Upward Sports here at Emmanuel.
