Are you a soccer coach who is interested in serving as instructor at youth soccer camps that also serve to instill important values in the players who attend? Perhaps you are a parent of a young athlete who wants to attend quality youth soccer clinics that also focus on the value of ministry of sports.
If either of these is the case, it may make sense to look into involvement with soccer mission trips and other soccer ministry programs that use the lessons learned through the sport as a means of sharing and receiving spiritual truth as well.
