Sports Friends Ethiopia (92764)
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.
Ethiopia was the birthplace of the Sports Friends ministry in 2002. Since that time, God has unleashed a movement of thousands of local churches using sports ministry to impact their communities. New churches have been established and many lives have been transformed. Ethiopia is also home to our first residential camp, Camp Langano.
