Reaching the world for Christ through Sport
International Tours and Missions
Every year teams and individuals take the Gospel to different parts of the world through the worldwide language of football.
A typical tour will see a team of about 15 footballers stay in a host town and play a number of teams from the surrounding area; sometimes there will be an opportunity to run a soccer school for children. It is not just in the presentations and conversations that take place that we aim to share Christ but in our conduct and attitude particularly on the field we trust His light will shine. We are known in the Dachstein Valley in Austria, where our longest running tour visits each year, as the 'joy people'
In recent years, SportsReach has begun pioneering sports ministry in less-developed countries and have used a mixture of evangelistic missions and bible teaching along with playing football and netball matches and running soccer schools. Recent successful missions have been to Kenya and Malawi.
**** SportsReach Tours 2013 ****
Austria - 10th - 24th May 2013 (20th Year!)
WHERE: Schladming (www.fackeltraeger.at)
COST: £600 (excluding flights)
We will be based at Tauernhof Bible college which is in the beautiful town of Schladming, at the foot of the Dachstein Mountain Range. Not only does this tour offer plenty of football matches (8-10 games) on some of the most scenic pitches in Austria, but it also gives those who go a taste of Bible school at its best, as we join students on campus and in lectures daily. We also share quality time in our team devotions along with taking the good news of the Gospel to local teams all along the Dachstein Valley. If you love football, have a desire for studying the Word and a heart for sharing the Gospel, then this is the trip for you!
France- 5th - 14th June 2013 (10th Year!)
WHERE: Le Chateau St Albain (www.chateaustalbain.com)
COST: £520 (excluding flights)
This year we are based for the second time at Le Chateau St Albain near Macon. As well as playing against a some local teams in the town of Macon and linking with a local Church, we will be working (playing approx another 4 games) in the beautiful region of Charolles, famed for its charolais cattle. Team devotions are a great way to bond together as we look at the Bible together each day and we have matches each evening, giving opportunity to testify and share the Gospel in this needy land. This is the tenth year we have taken a team to France and we are really looking forward to see God at work in and through the team!!
Shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. Phil 2:15
