Sports ministries are building and strengthening communities of Jesus followers.
Sports is pioneering new in-roads into communities around the world by enabling Catalytic workers to lead, coach and disciple people that otherwise wouldn’t be reached. Sports goes beyond language and cultural boundaries, and crosses barriers of race and injustice.
Our coaches and athletes are disciple-makers, hosting community sports activities, engaging in sports leagues and training both coaches and athletes in biblical principles. And Catalytic sports ministries aren’t only focused on mainline sports; our extreme and adventure sports teams are also growing — in the air and on the waves and rock faces around the world.
Explore these opportunities to use your athletic interests with one of our teams around the world.
Coaches and athletes at work
Bringing athletes together through running, R4TW creates awareness and mobilises action for mission projects around the world. Participants can organise their own event or join an existing one, raising funds and praying for specific causes.
A month-long training, Multiply School equips leaders to multiply Jesus followers through sports. Participants are led through topics like team leadership, partnerships, disciple-making, Discovery Bible Studies and sports coaching, and given tools to implement acquired skills in the ministries they are a part of.
Catalytic Ministries has created a network of sports coaches, equipping them with both ministry and coaching qualifications that can influence any community. A coach’s main focus is to multiply Jesus followers, on and off the field. They gain access to communities that have little engagement with the gospel through sports initiatives like tournaments, clinics and camps.
