Sports fields of all kinds are at the centre of every community around the world, filled with people competing and sharing life together. We believe every sports field can become a harvest field for discipleship and generate hope for families and communities through the transforming love of Jesus Christ.
We want to see athletes and coaches, local churches and communities make the most of sports through sharing Christ in relational and relevant ways, such as hosting community sports activities, engaging in sports leagues, training coaches and athletes in applying biblical principles to sports, and much more.
OM Sport teams not only enable local sports initiatives, but also host outreaches at international sporting events, such as the FIFA World Cup, and hold events that span the globe, like R4TW (Run for the World).
In addition to mainline sports, several OM teams are starting new work to focus on various extreme and adventure sports. Regardless if the sports field is in the air, on an ocean wave, on a rock face or on flat land, every sports field can become a harvest field!
Pray that many lives around the world would be touched by God’s love through sport. Each month we send out a newsletter highlighting sports ministries and practical ways to pray. Subscribe here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
OM sports ministries are funded by donations from individuals, churches and businesses. Consider partnering with an OM team seeking to further develop sports ministries in a country and impact communities for Christ on the local sports fields.
