The Sport Management (SM) major equips men and women to serve Christ in the fields of sports management, sports ministry, and coaching.

Students receive field service experience each year they are enrolled at LBC. These field service opportunities are key to the students’ educational experience as it is where they put into practice what they have learned in the classroom.
