C4C 2020 Vision
Since 2005, C4C has been working here Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Great Britain and all over the world with children & young people to share the wonderful news that Christ is risen! Since we started, we have used sport and football to enable us to share the Gospel with approximately 60,000 young people. But we need to do more, and that’s why we’ve set ourselves a stretching target.
C4C also train churches and youth organisations to run their own summer camps and outreach missions, using sport and football as a tool to reaching into communities for the Lord. During April/May of 2017, C4C trained a further 24 people from various churches in Northern Ireland to equip them to use sport as a tool to reach out into their communities with the Gospel. The C4C Bible & Sports College (which is now accredited by Moorlands College) runs a 1 year full time course in Sports Ministry to equip men and women with a passion for the Gospel to reach others.
During the winter months, C4C run skills coaching, teams and leagues for boys and girls of all ages. Each training session is a high quality coaching session with a 10 minute Bible slot, both tailored specifically to the age being coached.
We have also started to enter our more senior teams into the South Belfast League – this has been decision taken by C4C to extend into a secular league with the intention of setting an example to others and seeking opportunities to talk about Jesus.
Between now and 2020, we are re-doubling our efforts to reach out into our communities and the world to reach young people & their families with the Gospel – will you partner with us to make that happen?
No matter where we come from or what our circumstances are, we all share one need – the need of salvation. By the end of 2020, C4C are committed to have shared the news of God’s gift of salvation with another 40,000 young people & children worldwide. You may be thinking that’s quite a target! We are ambitious in our work to share God’s love with as many as possible, please read on to find out how we intend to reach this target and how you can help us.
C4C has developed a number of ministries with the single aim of spreading the good news and seeing young lives transformed through personal relationships with the Saviour. Throughout the summer months we will be concentrating on summer camps in partnership with host evangelical churches which will run all over Ireland, North and South, Europe, Canada & USA. These take the form of 4 day events where we run high quality football skills coaching sessions (our coaches are IFA & UEFA qualified) combined with an all important centre point slot, where we teach about Creation, Sin, Jesus & Salvation on consecutive days The 4 day session finishes off with a world cup tournament – all attendees receive medals for taking part – but most importantly they receive their own personal copy of the New Testament. Parents, family & friends are then invited to a close of camp BBQ where one of our coaches will share God’s word.
