World Sports Ministries

Our purpose for any mission trip is four fold:

Seen here taking an active role in the Cricket World Cup 2007.

1. To win people for Jesus Christ

2. To serve and partner with our hosts and the local Body of Christ

3. To train local leaders to continue outreach through sport

4. To train and give experience to our team leaders enabling them to serve their home church better when they return.
