A golden opportunity for sports mission will arise this summer with the convergence of four World Cup events over the course of six months. The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup begins this Friday 30 May and runs until 14 July. In this span of nearly two months, two further World Cups will kick off, with the FIFA Women’s World Cup launching in France (4 June - 4 July) and Liverpool hosting the INF Netball World Cup (12 July - 21 July), followed shortly after by the Rugby World Cup in Japan (20 September - 2 November).
What an opportunity these events present to reach your teammates and local sportspeople with the Good News through World Cup-themed events!
The Sports Mission Pack contains a breadth of quizzes, films, sports tournament tools and marketing resources to help people run sports-themed evangelistic events. Over the years, Christians in Sport have partnered with those using their resources to share the gospel clearly and expectantly in community, club and church contexts, helping to reach out into the harvest field of nearly 10 million Britons currently playing sport.
With this upcoming run of World Cups, Christians in Sport have further developed the pack to incorporate four new quizzes specific to these sporting events. These can be used as add-on rounds within the original Sports Quiz, as separate quizzes, or used in a build-your-own format, great for all levels of sports players and fans.
Perhaps your team or church could...
The possibilities to share the gospel using the Sports Mission Pack are endless!
Further questions and advice on how best to use of the pack can be sent in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our prayer is that through these World Cup additions many more sportspeople will have the chance to hear and respond to the gospel this summer.
