You see the influence of sport everyday. From celebrity athletes to youth sport activities, from 24-hour TV networks to your local newspaper -- sport influences individual lives and entire countries. What if the universal language and impact of sport was used to offer the gospel and equip people to live and share their faith?
Athletes in Action©, a ministry of Cru, is an international sports organization focused on equipping athletes, coaches and sport-minded individuals to grow in their relationship with Jesus and invest their lives into others. By serving more than 60 countries, on over 200 college campuses, in 50 professional sports teams, our ultimate goal is to see Christ-followers on every team, in every sport, in every nation.
Your partnership with Athletes in Action Priority Needs makes it possible to quickly address pressing needs and opportunities in global sports ministry. We look forward to working together toward the common goal of furthering God’s kingdom!
Volunteer chaplains faithfully serve sports teams around the world, reaching athletes in their communities for Christ on the frontlines of a battle for souls.

With the pressure to perform and fit in, connecting college athletes with Jesus at the beginning of their collegiate careers is critical. It’s important not only for their own spiritual lives but also for the spiritual lives of those they will influence on their campuses. Your partnership will provide outreach tools and resources for their personal growth.

Every year hundreds of thousands of kids attend sport camps. Our youth camps go beyond sports, though, to bring kids -- many of whom are underprivileged -- face to face with the gospel message of love, grace and redemption. You have an opportunity to step in and help change the course of a young athlete’s life … for eternity.
