Who are we?

Coaching for Christ were established in 2004  and use football to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and see lives and communities transformed by Christ through football. Coaching for Christ has now reached over 750,000 people with the Gospel message and seen 1000’s of young people put their trust in Jesus.
