World Sports Ministries
Our purpose for any
mission trip is four fold:
1. To win people for Jesus Christ
2. To serve and partner with our hosts and the local Body
3. To train local leaders to
continue outreach through sport
4. To train and give experience to our team leaders enabling
them to serve their home church better when they return.
