Sports Friends International
Sports Friends is a ministry working in 19 countries around the world ministering to almost 300,000 young people through the powerful platform of sports. Our mission is to equip churches and church planters to use sports to make disciples of Jesus Christ among young people, their families, and their communities. We believe that sports ministry serves as a powerful tool for the church to build relationships with young people and share the hope of the gospel. We provide training for church partners, and those who attend become coaches in their local communities. Much more than a sports coach, these “life coaches” are mentoring and loving young people, walking with them through life’s challenges, and helping them to become mature disciples of Jesus Christ. By God’s grace, lives are being eternally impacted, new churches established, and entire communities transformed!
We’re always looking for more awesome people to join our diverse, global team! We need people who have a passion for sports and young people, but it’s not essential for many of the roles within Sports Friends. We are also looking for workers who have gifts in administration, communications, discipleship, leadership, pastoral care, and many others as we seek to equip the church to make disciples. Your passions, gifts, and skills can all be used for God’s glory! Whether you’re ready to engage in long-term ministry or want to test the water with an internship or short-term ministry trip, we can help connect you to God’s work all over the world.
