Sports

Knowing God and making him known is a very broad mandate  for any mission, church, or organization. There are few activities that reach all cultures, colors, race, language, religion, age and gender. One of those activities also only has one language.. the language of sports.

There is nothing like athletics to bring together a community, a country, and the world. Not only does it bring these things together, but physical exercise also completes us as individuals body, mind (soul) and spirit. It is only when these three are functioning as God planned that we can reach our ultimate potential to accomplish His plan through us.

YWAM, along with the body of Christ, for the past 50 years has been striving to fulfill the great commission through many, many activities, but only recently has sports come to the forefront of those activities. Combining sports and physical fitness as tools to  reach our world. Come join us as we join with others empowering one another personally and collectively to reach our true potential and destiny in Christ.

EXcompetition Egypt August 2010 Report

What a great privilege it is to report to you about our first EXcompetition in Egypt August 2010. First let me give a little explanation of what EXcompetition is: Our mission, in conjunction with our University a few years ago began to look at sports as an official part of what they are doing worldwide, even though sports had been started many years ago by people such as Jimmy Stewart out of Hong Kong, Kevin Stark also out of Hong Kong and Montana, Keith Buzzard from Montana, Baher from Egypt, more recently, Coach Powers from Kona, and so many others. We began with a meeting of a few of us in Kansas City, trying to discern where we are with sports and its many facets around the world. From that meeting till now many sports schools, and people have been beginning to work together to further the Kingdom through sports. Affiliations have been recognized with groups such as global network of sports ministries, Athletes in Action (AIA), etc. our university has now recognized sports as part of one of its colleges, College of Arts and Sports, and has begun to set up seminars, courses and outreaches, and will hopefully offer a complete degree program in the near future.
