Sports Friends Kenya (92150)
Today's youth face many struggles and issues - religious and cultural identity, drugs, alcohol, sexuality, gangs, poverty, broken homes, unemployment, internet gaming, etc. How can the Church help young people address these issues and offer them hope found only in Christ?
Sports serve as a magnet - a universal language that can bridge the gap between the church and the community. We want to tap into the passion young people have for sports to introduce them and their families to the love and Word of God.
The vision of Sports Friends is to see a global movement of local church-centered sports ministries transforming lives and strengthening communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Over 61% of Kenya is under the age of 25, making this nation a fertile ground for sports ministry. In recent years, there has been much growth in our ministry with multiple trainings and camps held in the north and along the coast. In a land where religious and sectarian tensions continue to rise, we pray that sports ministry will provide a platform for peace and reconciliation among the peoples of Kenya.
