Sweden Sports & Fitness

Opportunity Overview

*Due to insurance company policies, the trip costs are higher for persons traveling internationally who are age 75 - 85.  Please contact the Missions Ministry for pricing information if you are over age 75.
1 Timothy 4:8 - "For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come."

A low percentage of the Swedish population are evangelical Christians. Southeast Christian Church partners with a ministry in Sweden called Sport for Life, a ministry that uses summer camps that focus on sports and fitness as a tool to draw people to a relationship with Christ.

This team will be assisting Sport for Life with a sports and fitness camp. The team will lead a variety of fitness classes for adults who bring their families to the summer camps. These classes will include flexible strength (yoga), strength, aerobics, and boot camp. The team will also provide support for several sports camps for the children. These sports camps help teach basketball, volleyball, soccer, and floorball (indoor field hockey) skills. Sports and fitness are wonderful ways to draw people closer to Christ.

Similar to the bible verse above, having the ability to lead/participate in the physical activity is of some value, but having a heart for God and serving others has value for all things. This could be the trip for you.
