Throughout the world, people gather around sports. The games may differ, but the camaraderie and sense of belonging that accompanies being part of a team spans cultures. If you love sports, you could channel that passion to spread the love of Jesus with people living in hard places. From soccer in South America to netball in Africa, from hockey in Asia to volleyball in refugee camps in Europe, sports bring people together and creates a space to demonstrate the love of Jesus.
How can you use sports to bring God’s good news to hard places? Camps, leagues, lessons, coaching teams, missional businesses, teaching physical education, and playing pick-up games are just some of the opportunities that exist.
