Mission Trip Spring 2018
We are so proud of the accomplishments of our student athletes both on and off the field. The impact that we have by serving and engaging the community will continue to ensure that this is a life-changing experience. As we look to expand and deepen our impact, one major initiative we have been pursuing is programming an international mission trip into the four-year experience.
We are asking you to participate as a mission trip member either through a donation or your thoughtful prayers. Matthew 28:19: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Our Men’s Soccer team will be the first soccer team in the recent era to have this opportunity. Concordia men’s soccer has partnered with the CUI “Guatemala Initiative.” This program has been operating through Concordia since 2015 and will provide our men’s team the opportunity to serve the Village of El Progresso, Guatemala in the spring of 2018.
During our Spring break trip to Guatemala the team will be involved in running an after-school soccer camp for the kids of the village, as well as having the opportunity to teach soccer skills during morning P.E. classes for the kids who are in Elementary School through Middle School. The soccer program plans to take 22 players plus the coaching staff. The trip will cost approximately $1,800 per person.
If the Lord calls you to participate as a mission trip member for spring 2018, no amount is too large or too small. If you simply cannot make a monetary donation right now, we ask that you pray for us during our time there.
