International Tours and Training

MAI is uniquely equipped and positioned to share the good news of Jesus Christ around the world, including several regions restricted to traditional efforts. Since its inception, 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.  We train these coaches and players by combining excellence in soccer, authentic community and our own unique sports ministry training curriculum. This is done in a context that encourages and serves ongoing overseas sports ministry initiatives. Through our international tours and training, MAI desires to generate teams of influential coaches and players who impact lives and inspire people to flourish in and for Christ wherever they are planted.

August 2021

MAI, has been taking soccer teams to Japan for the past 24 years. The experience is a short-term missions trip using the sport of soccer and partnering with local churches to gain access to audiences that would otherwise not be accessible by those pastors.  Less than 1% of the Japanese people claim to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  By bridging the gap through relationship first, we gain the trust to present the gospel.
