What Can I Do With a Career in Sport Ministry?
Sport ministry involves the integration of sports and faith-based principles to create opportunities for spiritual growth, community engagement, and personal development.
It combines the passion for sports with a focus on nurturing the spiritual well-being of individuals and fostering a sense of community. Sport ministry professionals may serve as chaplains, coaches, mentors, or program coordinators within religious organizations, schools, community centers, or sports teams.
