Church sport ministry
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
Mission: We are about the Great Commission by the Great Commandment. We desire to mobilize the church towards mission and building discipling cultures for His kingdom and glory
Vision: We dream of a day when a church in every region of the world would be equipped and empowered to be missional and disciple people through the bridge of sports and activities
The playbook is a guideline to help your church do evangelism and discipleship through sports & activities to fulfill the Great Commission. This is an overview of that process.
