MAI’s vision is to “generate teams of influential players and coaches who inspire people to flourish in and for Christ.” We want to recruit, train and equip soccer coaches to use their position of influence to inspire people, especially youth from the youngest ages, to live for Christ.
At the center of this effort are the roughly sixty MAI staff members who have chosen to answer a calling to ministry through a faith-support funding model. These dedicated staff are the “seed sowers” who live in our urban ministry neighborhoods, lead international outreach tours, train players and coaches in sports ministry through our offices in Charlotte, Chicago and Southern California.
Our goal is to seek out and prepare hundreds of coaches and players each year to use a soccer field to sow seeds that produce a harvest “a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown (Matt. 13:8).”
Your gifts in support of our missionary staff and ministry programs allow us to place the imperishable seed of the gospel into the cultivated hearts of people all over the world.
