Faith and Sports

The informal interview is the first step of our Campus Crusade for Christ – South Africa (CCCSA) staff application process.  It begins the journey of a perspective individual to see if they are called to join the CCCSA staff team.  Recently, I had the pleasure to interview Merlin, a student athlete at University of Western Cape.  He desires to minister to university and professional athletes with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Recently, he was a facilitator with the Ultimate Training Camp, created by CCCSA sports ministry Athletes in Action.  They tackle the issues of how to blend faith and sport together in every aspect.  Participants learn five core biblical principles, and then get to test these truths in an unforgettable 20-hour sports blitz, known as “The S.P.E.C.I.A.L.”  His heart is to help every athlete in every nation understand how the gospel impacts their sport and life.  Pray that he is able to complete the application process.
