There is a deep and increasing spiritual hunger unlike any we’ve seen before, and it’s happening all around the world. all around the world. Athletes (and others) are seeking the love, peace and salvation Jesus offers, and we have a unique opportunity to bring that to them!

God has called us to expand our international Chaplaincy ministry into 50 new countries. This program trains volunteers to be sport chaplains in their communities by partnering with local coaches and community leaders who have a passion for sharing the gospel through sport.

Nothing unites and binds people together around the world like our love of sport. Athletes can open doors, influence people and make an impact in their communities and society in a unique way that no one else can. 

You can help. Imagine the international impact you can have for Christ by joining with us. Your gift will bring Christ into strategic areas we’ve not yet reached. Athletes around the world are waiting for the chance to enter His race. Please help us reach them with your generous gift today!
