Kaohsiung Truth

Playing out of Kaohsiung City, a special municipality in the southwest of Taiwan, the team is in the midst of creating history as there has never been a professional Christian ministry basketball team. They will also be the first team outside of the Southeast Asia region to join the league.

The Kaohsiung Truth is primarily backed by The Truth Network, a group of Christian Radio Stations in the United States that broadcasts and streams live, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

“We’ve been putting this project together for about a year with the realization that we can use the sport of basketball as a platform to tackle the issues related to the 10/40 window,” said Stu Epperson, Team Owner of the Kaohsiung Truth. He added: “Being accustomed to this beautiful country and having the basketball background that we do, we wanted to create opportunities to share God’s love with other countries and communities.”

The lone team from Taiwan has already enlisted several players to bolster their squad for the upcoming season – Americans 6’11″ Derek Hall and 6’8” Chris Oliver and Taiwanese players 6’7″ Carlos Andrade, 6’3″ Wesley Hsu, and 6’3″ Sabatino Chen. They are also looking to sign players from Kaohsiung to boost their team and give it the much needed local flavor.
