Opportunity

Youth Sports Leaders

The Position

If you have a gift for youth outreach and an interest in sports ministry, the ABWE Poland team may be the perfect fit for you. As youth sports ministry leader, you’ll have an incredible opportunity to share the gospel with youth. As a youth sports ministry leader, you will:

  • Welcome young people into our existing church communities with fun and engaging sports programs
  • Mentor families and orphans through the challenges of adolescence by listening, loving and sharing Christ’s love
  • Identify the differences between the evangelical church and the Catholic church, particularly in the areas of grace and good works, and encourage meaningful discussions and questions about faith
  • Share your personal testimony and explain why following Jesus is the only path to salvation
  • Set an excellent example for the community by living an authentically Christian lifestyle
  • Bring energy, patience, perseverance and passion to missions work every day
The Need

With fewer than 170 missionaries to reach a population of nearly 39 million people, Poland has only one missionary for every one million residents. Of Poland’s 2,500 counties, 2,219 have no evangelical presence of any kind. ABWE works with two church plants in northern Poland. A Polish pastor noted, “We just do not have enough believers to do the work that needs to be done here.” In Poland, the opportunity to make a significant spiritual impact on people is great. If you believe God has given you the gift of evangelism, ABWE can help you fulfill His plan for your life.

The Impact

Working with today’s youth is an incredibly challenging yet rewarding experience for many ABWE missionaries. Think of the impact God can have when you reach just one person! Sports ministry is an effective way to engage with older kids who desperately need active spiritual guidance and direction. If you feel God calling you toward a life in missions work, and you have a gift for working with adolescents, consider serving with ABWE in Poland.

Change the eternal lives of countless people with ABWE in Poland today.
