Director's Message: Summer 2017

 

Summer is such a special time of year for Christians in Sport because of Sports Plus. The camps have been transformational for 22 years. Thousands of stories could be written about Sports Plus and no one story could do justice to the amazing work God has done in the lives of young people at camp.

Since our first camp at Cokethorpe School in 1995, they have made a huge impact for the gospel in the world of sport. At the most matter-of-fact level a significant number of the Christians in Sport staff appointed over the years have come through our Sports Plus camps and at least 50 people who have gone on to lead churches in the UK have been involved as young people or leaders.

There are also a number of individuals who have progressed to the highest level of sport. All these things are a great joy as it means many in significant leadership positions have benefited from the combination of Bible teaching, community and its application to the sporting life which shaped their lives as young people.’

There have been thousands of young people who have come to know Christ and grow in Him over these years. It is a remarkable work, one that has been a source of great growth and joy in the advancement of God’s kingdom in the world of sport. Do enjoy the stories of God at work in the lives of sportspeople as you read this magazine.

Please join with us in praising God for the thousands of young people who have come to know Christ and grown in their faith over the years of Sports Plus. Thank you for your continued support in prayer and finances that enable this wonderful gospel opportunity to reach all parts of the world of sport for Christ.
