VICTORY BEYOND COMPETITION
Athletes in Action at Mizzou is sending athletes and coaches out into the world to live with eternity in mind as they grow in Christ and multiply their lives into others.
We teach a “Victory Beyond Competition” mindset – to live every day with the end in mind.
Competition pushes us to be the best we can be. Despite our efforts, circumstances will hold us back from our aspirations, but God invites us to live above and beyond our circumstances by living for something more important than sport. Every day we can live with eternity in mind by growing in our relationship with Jesus and by multiplying our lives into others. This eternal victory lasts for a lifetime.
Part of living a life that pursues victory beyond competition is partnering with God to reach the world for Christ.
Athletes in Action hosts numerous opportunities each year for coaches, athletes, and trainers to engage in God’s heart for the world. Be it stateside or internationally, we encourage athletes to go, just as Jesus commissioned us to in Matthew 28:18-20.
You can learn about using competition to worship at one of our summer camps or discover what the Bible has to say about race, power, privilege, and the poor at Urban Project Los Angeles. If you’re interested in participating in what God is doing around the world, one of our Spring Break mission trips or summer competitive tours is for you.
