Sports Ministry

Sport is a universal language that has the ability to transcend all cultural, political, religious, and economic barriers.  Among sports there is nothing like soccer that has the ability to bring together cities, nations, and the world.  In soccer, we are using one of the greatest possible tools to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
