Sports leaders are often underutilizing & even abusing the most influential and resource abundant industry in our world.
Sports professionals are allowing the all-consuming nature of their careers define them & inappropriately aligning their love for sports with God’s heart.
Sports professionals face very volatile careers, with frequent firing and hiring. USA Today found only 34% of head coaches across all four major professional sports leagues (NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL) to have been in their positions for 3 years or more (USA Today, 2012).
Help for Africa
There are approximately 24 million paternal orphans (children without their father) throughout Africa, with very few male missionaries rising up to fill this void for male mentors (UNICEF, 2003).
It is extremely difficult to connect student managers with an international experience because of the year round commitment their positions require.
