Soviet Communism ended almost 30 years ago. 1000 years of Roman Catholic influence is slowly waning. As a member of the European Union, Poland’s culture is becoming rather secular and far from God. The time is now to bring the presence of God with our message of hope. We partner with a large church in southern Poland, west of Krakow.
We will support an “American English Sports Camp” for young people ages 14-18 by teaching American football, basketball, soccer, crossfit, and volleyball. The camp's theme is the power of God's love - love that does right, likes sound competition, serves others, endures pain, and makes a great team. This camp will provide lots of opportunity to build lifelong friendships through participation in recreational sports while practicing conversational English. We will lead the youth into radical worship and into the presence of the Lord through the evening evagelistic meetings. The camp brings hope to the youth, energy to the church, and leads people to return to Jesus or finding Jesus for the first-time.
We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Our short-term trips provide opportunities for people to serve together in various locations around the world. Our belief is that as people chose to serve, whether in one of our churches, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.
For those of you who have not gotten involved, we hope this will be the year you choose to begin a lifestyle of service. And to those who are serving, we just want to say thank you. You are the reason the mission is being accomplished.
