Changed Lives since 1966
Since 1966, Athletes in Action (AIA) has been a global pioneer, innovator, and servant leader in sport ministry. As a branch of Campus Crusade for Christ, AIA exists to change lives by building spiritual movements everywhere through the platform of sport: on the field, in the locker room, and under stadium lights. By speaking the language of sport - a language that breaks barriers, transcends differences, and is understood by all, AIA brings Jesus and His message of victory into the hearts, homes, and communities of millions around the world!
Currently, AIA has a ministry presence in nearly 100 countries (most of which have a native national leader), on nearly 150 U.S. college campuses, and on 20 U.S. professional sports teams. Countless volunteers, thousands of athletes and more than 500 staff members stand together to share one message: Life’s greatest victory is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Every person worships something, and for many, sports is that something. This places athletes in a unique position of leadership to impact other athletes and those that follow sports. They will go on to influence everything from law, to media, to the classroom, to the government. God desires to change the lives of athletes.
