Global Chaplains

partner with
global sport chaplains

Around the world, athletes and coaches influence their communities for better or for worse. Global sport chaplains volunteer to reach those athletes and coaches with the hope of Jesus so their influence can be used to impact sport culture and change the world.

In total, the goal is to train, equip, and establish 1,000 new volunteer sports chaplains in 2020.

Your donation today will provide the essential training they need to carry out their work, pay for printed materials, and cover basic costs of ministry.

With your help, these efforts have the potential to impact tens of thousands of lives as athletes are introduced to a new way of competing– and most importantly, Jesus– across the world!
