deficit reality


We’re projecting a budget shortfall by August 31, the end of our fiscal year. Your generous contribution will go a long way to close the funding gap as we prepare for students to return to campus in the fall.

More importantly, however, your support will help meet the spiritual needs of athletes through timely ministry projects God has put before us now…

  • virtual training camps- such as the Ultimate Training Camp, giving an impactful virtual experience to collegiate athletes as they learn biblical principles for competition

  • digital discipleship- through our 6 week Equipped Discipleship curriculum, athletes convene for live weekly video meetings, learning how to effectively share their faith

As many are filled with uncertainty and fear, now is the time when athletes need Athletes in Action more than ever.

You have the opportunity to provide them with desperately needed biblical guidance, real hope, and the peace that only comes with knowing Jesus.
