Summer of Sports (SOS) is an outreach training program that uses a variety of team sports as a tool to share the gospel. The first few weeks of the program will be spent in Lakeside, Montana where you will train, attend lectures, and hone your skills in a number of different sports. Topics during the lecture phase include ‘Basics of the Faith’, ‘Bible Study’, ‘Character and Nature of God’ and more. The next weeks are spent on an overseas outreach which will enable the students to utilize their gifts and skills in sharing the Gospel cross-culturally. Each outreach concludes with a debriefing time designed to help students process through their entire experience.
Students in Summer of Sports will not only be equipped spiritually, but will gain skills training in athletics as well. During the afternoon portion of the lecture phase, students will spend time in weight training, skills training, and physical conditioning, 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. The program will serve to give the students the ability to continue in an intensive athletic lifestyle.
The Summer of Sports seeks to use athletics as a door into the lives of people who may have never heard the good news of Jesus. You will be equipped to evangelize and disciple while using the athletic talent and passion that God has given you for sports. Sports can provide an open door to the hearts of people who might otherwise be closed off to hearing the Good news of Christ.
