Crossing Barriers

Sports is a universal language that speaks to all cultures the value of overcoming adversity, teamwork, honor, integrity and character. From pickup basketball games in Asia to soccer tournaments in Latin America, we’ve seen the power of sports to transcend cultural barriers and open doors for missions.

The Power of Sports

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” [Nelson Mandela]

Like Mandela, you believe in the power of sports. It stirs passion deep in your heart. And you long to use this passion to inspire others not just with a love for sports, but true passion for Jesus.

The Sports elective is a journey to connect your passion for sports with a passion to share Jesus in every context. You will have the opportunity to participate in regular sports activities and workouts while growing in your relationship to God, and then share the gospel through sports on the outreach phase of the school.

What To Expect?

A YWAM DTS is for people of all ages (17+) who are serious about taking their relationship with God to the next level. You’ll be in situations that challenge you and bring out your strengths and weaknesses as you learn to give your all for Jesus. You’ll learn how to hear God and to obey Him. Your relationship with God will be on the fast track!
