Boxing helps bring young men to church

Jerry James took a right to the chops for Jesus the other night in downtown Sioux Falls.

Clad in sweats, boxing gloves and head gear, the former standout amateur boxer stood between the ropes - and in the middle of the homily - Saturday night at New Life Church.

Religion with a punch, spectators joked from the gallery.

"We try to reach out to those who aren't already going, who think church is boring," says Klimchuk, 30. "The truth is, the church is having problems getting young men inside them. So we ask, 'What will reach the guys?' This seems like a perfect answer."

to see his "believers" beating the shit out of each other in his name.
