Sports Friends Ghana (94008)
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.
Sports Friends is partnering with local churches in northern Ghana with the shared vision to disciple youth already in the church and to reach out to people of other religions in that area. Our prayer is that the Ghanaian church will continue to grow in their understanding and use of sports ministry.
