Gran Canaria, SPAIN (Basketball)
July 3 – July 12, 2020
Basketball: Men and Women
Team size: 10
Closer to Morocco than to the Spanish mainland, the Canary Islands are officially a part of Spain.
While we have been serving alongside local churches on Tenerife for many years, God has now opened doors for us to partner with a local church on Gran Canaria, also one of the Canary Islands. To most, the Canary Islands are a vacation destination. For us, it is a place in need of the Lord, but where the Lord is at work. We will be running basketball clinics in different communities during the day and playing exhibition games in the evening. Our purpose is to partner with these churches in taking the light of Jesus Christ into a spiritually dark place.
We are excited to come alongside these churches and continue to build bridges for the Gospel into surrounding communities. We will have opportunities to deepen relationships that were formed over previous summers as well as help them build relationships with new families who get involved via the daily clinics and evening games. There will be occasions to share the Gospel message through our verbal and nonverbal testimonies during both the clinics and games. In addition to teaching the fundamental skills of basketball, you will be able to show how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ impacts your life, including how you teach and play the game, through your testimony.
The church we partner with do a tremendous job of utilizing our team to share the Gospel and open up doors in new communities throughout the island. Another very encouraging element of this trip is that believers from literally all over the world come together for these two weeks to share the Gospel alongside the church.
We want to enable you to use the gifts and abilities God has given you in basketball to have an eternal impact on those in Gran Canaria. You will be able to model how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can positively impact and change every aspect of your life! We believe this experience will deepen your faith and open your eyes to what God is doing in this particular part of the world.
Team training starts on Thursday, July 2 in the Lehigh Valley, PA. The team will be returning from Spain on Sunday, July 12, in the evening. (Specific travels plans for you before and after the trip will be worked out once you are a part of the team.)
We encourage you to pray about being a part of this team. You do NOT want to miss out on this opportunity! If you have any additional questions, please contact the office. Otherwise, the next step is to fill out an application by following the links below.
