Tumbling Team

MISSION

The Asbury University Tumbling Team is an outreach children’s ministry team. Our unique ministry uses a combination of gymnastics, acrobatic stunts, and cheer skills to fulfill our mission of witnessing for Christ through gymnastics. The team is available to perform for churches, schools, and other community organizations during their spring break each year. The team ends its spring tour season with “Jym Jamboree” in early April at the Luce Center on campus.

HISTORY

Founded in 1965, the group has toured throughout the United States, performing for schools, churches, community groups, prisons, and has included shows at the Pentagon and an NBA basketball game. The team has roots going back to 1935 before becoming officially sponsored by the school in 1965, offering the first “Jym Jamboree” that year. Throughout the years, Asbury University students have used the vehicle of gymnastics and sports acrobatics as a means to communicate Christ’s transforming work. We are proud to be an extension of that great heritage.
