Opportunity

Youth Sports Leaders

The Position

If you have a passion for sports, a gift for working with kids and the energy to succeed in missions, ABWE has a place for you on our St. Lucia team. As youth sports ministry leader, you’ll bring your love of evangelism to the youth of St. Lucia, and help grow the church through the power of sports.

As youth sports ministry leader, you will:

  • Bring your experience and talents working with kids to St. Lucia, where you’ll develop a fun and engaging sports ministry that welcomes new members with open arms
  • Demonstrate excellent judgment and leadership skills, and set an outstanding example for the community as to what living an authentically Christian lifestyle should be
  • Share your testimony and answer questions about faith, and develop the relationships that will lead to deeper discussions about Jesus Christ
  • Mentor kids through the challenges of youth, and welcome their family members into our church community
  • Have a heart for missions work and the perseverance to sustain a positive attitude every day
The Need

In Saint Lucia, 95% of people identify as Christian and there are strong ties to both Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. While the Christian population represents a large majority, less than 20% are evangelical believers. We are excited about the opportunities available, but we need more missionaries in order to better serve Saint Lucian believers and those that have not yet encountered the gospel.

With additional missionaries we can grow God’s kingdom, make churches more accessible, reinforce strong local leadership, and help make this beautiful island nation a beacon of light in the West Indies.

Is God leading you to serve as a missionary to Saint Lucia?

The Impact

You’ll have an enormous opportunity to shape the minds and attitudes of St. Lucia’s youth in this important role. Imagine the impact you can have on just one adolescent who may be going through a troubling time! Teens especially need active guidance, and through your role as Youth Sports Ministry Leader you’ll be able to engage with them in a relatable and fun way. If you have heard God calling you to a life in missions work, our St. Lucia teams needs your help. Join us.
