ABOUT ATHLETES IN ACTION
Athletes in Action is an international sports organization. We focus on empowering athletes and coaches to be Christ-centered leaders and influencers on and off the field. Our ultimate goal is to see a Christ-follower on every team, in every sport, in every nation.
Since 1966, Athletes in Action has been using sports as a platform to help people answer questions of faith and to point them to Jesus. We believe that sports has the power to open doors and create connections in a way that few other things can, and that’s why we are constantly working to create new ways of reaching out to athletes and sports fans alike. Ultimately, our goal is to see peoples’ lives changed as they discover God’s purpose for their life.
Sports is a universal language. Everyone, regardless of race, culture, socio-economic status or religious conviction, understands the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. As we work toward the fulfillment of our goal of seeing Christ-followers on every team, in every sport, in every nation, we’re dependent on God to raise up national leaders around the world who will use the platform of sports to bring the gospel to their country. We really believe that entire cultures and nations can be changed for the better as athletic leaders use their unique positions to point others to Christ.
Along the Front Range of Colorado, Athletes in Action influences hundreds of college, olympic and professional athletes on behalf of the Gospel of Jesus. The Annual Night of Champions dinner aids us in developing the resources necessary to continue the work of Jesus to and through athletes.
