116 Boyz is a community of online gamers who heed the call that God has called each one of us to do, “Go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19). While video games sometimes are viewed negatively due to its content. The 116 Boyz affirm to be Salt and Light to a dimly lit world. Today, there are over 15 million people who play Call of Duty based games alone; yet we do not exist solely for those who play shooter type games. The 116 Boyz is a ministry that covers all game spectrums and all game consoles to include Playstation, Wii, and PC Gamers. We exist to lead those who are lost to Christ; and also to pour our lives into believers who seek a place of community and fellowship with other Christian believers. While we love our gaming, at the end of the day when we lay our controllers down, it’s not about who is the best player; but who has made the most impact of ministering into the lives of online gamers for Jesus Christ!
The 116 Boyz began with an idea from its founder Daniel Beck, Gamertag: BornAgain2001. He realized that with the ever growing popularity of online gaming, not only are our youth being distracted from God’s calling on their lives, but also men of all ages.
