‘More Than Skills’
Schools Coaching Ministry
In the UK, coaches have been serving multiple schools through delivering physical education lessons and running lunch and after school sports specific sessions. Blending sports drills with life skills from a Biblical perspective is producing changed lives. Increased participation and skill level is pleasing and obvious, but spiritual awareness through ‘seed sowing’ and character development are huge. ‘Jake’ is one such example; often distracted and very disruptive, we have seen the Lord open his eyes to a better way with an incredible new ‘hunger’ to learn and a much better awareness of ‘who he is’ and ‘whose he is.’ The change is remarkable – God is busy with him and many others like him through our ‘Total Coaching’ process. What a joy to train coaches to coach for the King!
Brilliance in Burundi!
Since October 2016 two trained leaders have started their own local sports ministry team in separate areas. this has led to over 70 people from multiple churches being trained to deliver ‘GO’ strategies. As well as their own locality, they have planted 4 other teams and trained over 120 new leaders. To date, largely through detached sports activity and soccer tournaments, over 2,000 people have been reached with the great news with 375 souls choosing to begin following Jesus. Glory to God and praise Him for the faithfulness of such passionate and diligent leaders in Burundi.
Please pray as we now need to help support them with more sports equipment and Bibles. Could you help us support them?

Over the past year, our local ministry in the west of England has been pioneering a new ministry to engage with and impact people with a range of disabilities. It’s leader Will, has been pursuing links into special educational needs schools as well as lining up a new community Boccia activity. Coaches have also been trained to work more effectively with disabled young people and the hope is that we can serve more schools as well help adults of all ages in local communities that perhaps wouldn’t find sport as easily accessible. Good stuff is happening, and great things are planned.
