Fifth News Update: Go4Glory and MTG
Saturday, 23 June 2012 22:20
We are counting down the days until Go4Glory begins in Harpenden, England. We’ve recently made plans for all Go4Glory participants to go into the Merton community with “Party in the Park” on July 22nd from 3 - 8 pm, where each of us has the opportunity to perform, demonstrate and interact. This event is done in partnership with many of the local churches in Merton. We will provide transportation for this integral part of our calling as arts & sports ministries – displaying His glory!
We are currently in the middle of the European Championship, one of the major soccer tournaments that is held every 4 years, and in just over a month the London Olympics begin. Sport is all around us - on the front page of all the news. The boundaries between sport and art are intertwining: athletes are rock stars and rock stars are athletes; artwork is on display, even on footballers’ bodies! Sports and arts are all about celebration.
This summer Go4Glory aims to capture what is going on in the world of sport and how it opens doors to express our faith and excel in our gifts. Our times of networking, playing and competing, as well as plunging into seminars, will highlight the very latest in sport and mission thinking.
Coach Powers & HPI team
“Coach” Tim Powers will be offering training sessions every morning and leading workshops at Go4Glory. He has provided training and consulting to athletic team members from numerous Division I college teams, the National Football League, Major League Baseball, various Olympic team athletes and NASCAR in the USA.
Coach Powers and the HPI Team (Human Performance Instruction) will do various training workouts each morning including dynamic warm-ups, sprint mechanics, plyometrics, footwork precision, agility movement patterns and power endurance runs. They will also present a clinic on "Sports Speed Development," to give Go4Glory participants a taste of how Olympians train.

Training for a Sports Ministry in YWAM?
"It was eye opening for me to see how many opportunities there are in sports ministry"
"I learned that sport is more than a powerful ministry tool"
"It was so practical and easy to teach biblical values through sports activities."
These are some comments after a recent sports seminar in YWAM.
In University of the Nations, we are developing a second level sports schools of 12 weeks and multiple seminars up to 6 weeks to equip you to do sports ministry. At Go4Glory you will hear the latest news about upcoming schools and seminars. You will also meet others who are doing sports ministry so we can all learn from each other. Come join us for “Sports Ministry training” workshop and other sports activities to find out more!
WORSHIP @ G4G
Each morning during Go4Glory we'll set the tone for our day with an extended time of
worship. We want to keep the focus upon God and listen to His heart, so we've prioritised this time for all the participants to come around His throne with one voice and one heart.
