Missionary Athletes International (MAI) is ‘playing a game to change the world.’ MAI uses the world’s most popular sport, soccer, to create teams that influence people for Christ through a unique combination of soccer excellence, authentic community, ministry engagement and spiritual growth.

We believe that soccer teams are an effective means to influence people for Christ and see God transform lives because:

Soccer is the world’s most popular sport
90% of people make decisions to follow Christ before the age of 18
A coach is one of the most influential figures in a young person’s life.

We operate teams through our Divisions located in six major metropolitan areas of the United States:
Charlotte, NC | Chicago, IL | NC Triad | Southern CA | Phoenix, AZ | Orlando, FL

MAI has partnered with like-minded churches and organizations across the globe to create soccer ministry opportunities for hundreds of coaches and teams, and thousands of players. These opportunities include Coaches Trainings and Short-term trips, or tours, for players.
