Missionary Athletes International (MAI) uses the world’s most popular sport 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 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 three major metropolitan areas of the United States: Charlotte, NC; Chicago, IL and Los Angeles, CA .  We also send ministry teams internationally and conduct conferences to provide our training to ministry-minded coaches all over the world.   

Our vision is to see God glorified and lives transformed by expanding the number of teams whose influence inspires people around the world to live in and for Christ.
