The mission of Impact Sports is to use sports as a vehicle to take the Gospel to places it has never been, is not allowed, or the delivery of it has previously been ineffective. Since 2006, Impact Sports International has been using sports to carry out the Great Commission that Jesus gave His followers: to make disciples and take His message of truth and redemption to the nations and everywhere in between. Impact is an interdenominational ministry with a burden to reach those at the “ends of the earth” who have never had the opportunity to hear the Good News for geographical, cultural, or legal reasons. To learn more about how you can use sports to impact the world with the Gospel, visit www.impactsportsonline.org.
