Netherlands Church Sports Ministry

Watch how one Netherlands church used the power of sport to revitalize a congregation

Christy Johnson

With a congregation of only 25 members — the youngest in their 50’s– Paul knew something dynamic needed to happen to revitalize his dying church in the Netherlands.

“The first thing I thought: ‘We need Athletes in Action … they can open doors to people we want to reach with the gospel.’”

And the doors that God opened? They weren’t to the four walls of a church building, they were to a world of opportunity for the re-growth of his church. Paul discovered a way to “bring church” to his community in the Netherlands.

What an incredible story! God is moving all over the world, through sports, to help people get to know Jesus and experience His love. Would you pray for the work of pastors like Paul who are committed to reaching the world for Jesus?
