The Sports Discipleship Training School is built for athletes, those who like to be active, and/or those who love sports.
It starts off with 12 weeks of teaching where you'll not only learn about God and missions but live out what you're learning.
You'll also get to be involved with different ministries on the base, have lots of prayer and worship times, and of course, play plenty of sport!
We're serious about providing you with ongoing discipleship, encouragement, and support. This happens through a one-on-one mentorship where you get to regularly meet with a staff member to process all the information and experiences coming your way. There are many opportunities provided to actively respond to God's word and teaching, both individually and corporately.
Tuesday nights we have teams entered into sports leagues in Perth, so you'll get to go out and play teams from around the city. There will also be afternoon sports during the week where we'll play soccer, basketball, rugby, volleyball, football, frisbee, you name it!
Every week you will have a different topic and a different speaker. The teaching is life-changing, powerful and centred around getting revelations of God through His Word. You'll have speakers from around the world who will teach each week in an interactive and compelling way that will inspire and challenge.
Outreach is about bringing the gospel to people in word and in deed. In recent years we've sent sports teams to Mexico City, Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, Mozambique, Uganda, Western Australia, and India. This is an anointed time where God moves in incredible ways in the nations of the earth through ordinary people like you and me. It's an incredible thing to be a part of and see someone's life transformed by the loving kindness of Jesus. This is what we were made for.
People need God's love and we are privileged to be the ones to share it with people throughout the world! We see so many lives changed through simple conversation and care, taking the time to SHOW love.
Sports are an incredibly effective way to connect with people, so we often try to get to know people by playing a game with them. We start friendly games with people, organise tournaments, or just join in wherever a ball is present! Then we share the gospel through the friendships we build.
We offer practical help to those who need it the most, Whether that's praying for the sick, visiting slum communities, simple healthcare. We see a need and our aim is to meet it. This is a great way to share God's love with those in need.
