Live Matches

This section features special pool matches and much more. Many of these are done in the GTS RACK Room at Michael Hewitt’s home in Muncie, IN…with each match designed to entertain and educate those watching, and most importantly, to convey a spiritual message of how to “Play Skillfully with a Shout of Joy” (Psalms 33:3) and RACK Up A Victory (regardless of the paper score) in a player’s “game and life”!!

You never know where the GTS RACK Rooms may show up, as they often go “live” at a competitive event in a special arena somewhere…to observe great players executing with honed skills, while demonstrating the “heart” of a true champion…win or lose. All “live” match and event experiences focus on the three “core values” of the GTS RACK Rooms outreach ministry: 1) Game “of” the Heart, 2) Game “in” the Mind, and 3) Game “on and off” the Table.

Interviews with some players, room owners, and spectators reveal many faith-driven stories about the passion and joy the game offers, but knowing all the while, that God allows a special blessing each time a cue is chalked, a rack of balls is broken, and the “thrill of victory” in the heart becomes a witness for all to see!

Live matches

Below are few of the special “live” matches in our archive files.

Bookmark this page, as we look forward to sharing as many matches (and “life” messages) as we can in the days and weeks ahead.
