Church sport movement
BIGGER THAN SPORT
Who We Are: Athletes In Action Church Sport Ministry is a global movement of AIA staff, volunteers, and churches using sport and activities as a means towards making disciples in all nations. We desire that the Great Commission will be fulfilled by the Great Commandment.
Vision: We dream of a day when people in every region of the world will have an opportunity to know the eternal life Jesus offers them and can be taught to follow His will
Mission: We desire to equip and empower the church to be mobilized towards evangelism and building discipling cultures through sports and activities for His kingdom and glory
