With the pressure to perform and fit in, connecting college athletes with Jesus at the beginning of their collegiate careers is critical. It’s important not only for their own spiritual lives but also for the spiritual lives of those they will influence on their campuses. Your partnership will provide outreach tools and resources for their personal growth. Reach college athletes NOW to influence the whole college campus.


Volunteer chaplains faithfully serve sports teams around the world, reaching athletes in their communities for Christ on the frontlines of a battle for souls. Your support will provide the essential training they need to carry out their work, pay for printed materials, cover basic costs of ministry and launch chaplain ministry in new countries. By supporting global sport chaplains, you will impact the world.


Every year hundreds of thousands of kids attend sport camps. Our youth camps go beyond sports, though, to bring kids face to face with the gospel message of love, grace and redemption. You have an opportunity to step in and help change the course of a young athlete’s life … for eternity. Sponsor a day of camp to give a hopeful child a transformational opportunity.

Digital Outreach

Every day, athletes, coaches, parents and other sport influencers are equipped with digital resources, articles and training to share their faith. By continuing to develop and distribute those resources and platforms, Athletes in Action is extending the reach of the good news. Support digital outreach to equip athletes and coaches to integrate their faith and sport.
