International Trips 2017

The Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ is to take the gospel to all the world (Mark 16:15). As football is the universal sport, it has opened many new doors for us to work in many different countries and to share the Gospel with them over the past 10 years.

Working mostly with missionaries and churches our work has helped them to often reach into the hearts of their local community with the gospel and many has seen many coming to saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Most trips last between 6-14 days and in 2017 we are anticipating trips to Canada and Spain.  Scroll down below to read about the highlights of trips from previous years.

Full training is included in the cost of the trip.

India Trip - February 2016

In February a team of five coaches set out for Goa, India to coach football in schools, train coaches and to work with children living in the slums. Coaching4Christ’s first trip was in 2013 partnering with El Shaddai Ministries ran by Pastor Matthew Kurian. Their ministry works with over 4000 children, many of which are rescued from the streets in very sad situations. Shelter, food and education is provided for the children and teaching from God’s Word gives the children a start in life that they would not normally have.

 

Spain Trip - June 2015

C4C travelled to Velez-Malaga where they worked alongside missionary’s who started up a church called Centro Christiano in the town. This trip was for the trainees who had just finished their training academy year and for most of them was their first ever missions trip. Team went into a different school each morning to coach football to multiple age groups but were not allowed to share the gospel in school grounds. The kids from each school were then invited to a camp in the evening for more football which was held in a public place, which then allowed to the time to share the Gospel with the kids. It was a great week of fellowship for the team and the presence of God was felt throughout the whole week.

Serbia trip - June 2014

C4C travelled to Serbia in June to work alongside 1st Belgrade Baptist Church. Two camps were held in Belgrade and Pancevo. This was the first international trip for our trainees in the class of 2014. This was a fantastic opportunity for them to use all they had learned throughout the year in class. Despite Christianity being a minority in the country, we saw God move in the local communities.

Poland trip - June 2014

This was the second trip for the training academy class. Travelling on from Belgrade they arrived in Gdansk to work along side Pastor Adrian Stróżek. They coached in local schools and also helped the church youth group with their summer programme. This trip was special as we helped a group of passionate young people in poland reach their friends.

Uganda trip - August 2014

This year we travelled to Uganda in connection with missionaries Raymond and Jackie Givan. Whilst there the team ran a summer camp for the Children in the Luwero area and saw many people respond to God’s Word. This truly was an amazing trip for all involved as they witnessed many lives transformed by Christ. God really is moving in Africa!

Italy trip - August 2014

Our team of eight coaches set out for Porto Mantovano, Italy to work alongside Coram Deo missionaries Alan and Tracy Johnson. We partnered with the local church, Sola Grazia, to make the largest impact we could for God in the area; reaching 30 kids with the good news of Jesus Christ. This week served to encourage the members of the local church to reach out further into their community.
