The founder of SCORE International, Ron Bishop, was welcomed into the gates of Heaven June 16, 2014. He was an amazing Christian warrior who impacted many people. We will miss him dearly, but we rejoice that he is at Home and no longer in pain. We know that we will see him again.
Ron Polk (former MSU coach), Keith, John Zeller (Executive Dir. SCORE) and Ron Bishop (Founder of SCORE INTERNATIONAL) enjoyed time together during the annual Nov Baseball Outreach in the Dominican Republic.
Thousands of Dominicans heard the Gospel as hundreds of Americans took time to share their faith through sports and mission trips.
After 32 years of high school and college baseball schedules, Keith and Sharon are excited to be able to work together reaching out to college and high school coaches, their players and their wives, and to those who just love the game of baseball.
This spring, Keith will be traveling to the D.R. to work with FCA and Go Ministries. They will host a first-time free baseball clinic for Dominican coaches. The registration numbers are increasing daily. It will be an exciting first and on-going annual event.
Keith travels to the Dominican Republic in August with college players from several different schools to compete on the field as well as serve in orphanages, and small villages.
Again this November (10th-14th), Sharon and Keith will attend the November Baseball Outreach in the Dominican Republic along with over 100 college, high school coaches and pro-players.
Keith Madison retired from coaching baseball at the University of Kentucky in 2003 after being the head coach for 25 years. He served two missions trips with SCORE International in the Dominican Republic and realized God was calling him into the sports ministry mission field. Sharon has also made this transition with Keith to SCORE. She ministers to coaches' wives, writes the bi-monthly newsletter, keeps the home office running smoothly, and helps with Keith's bi-weekly E-devotionals. Keith feels blessed as he reaches out to hundreds of college and high school baseball coaches. Since, 2004, Keith has spoken to thousands of coaches and players throughout the United States and in the Dominican Republic. God has blessed the Madisons with many opportunities to share His Message of love and reconciliation.
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
