Mission Overview
Athletes of Christ is a non-profit, international sports ministry created in Brazil on February 4, 1984. Its stated purpose is to "lead athletes to whole maturity through the universal language of sports." In 2003, AOC USA was formed in Danbury, CT. Now one of the Jericho Partnership Ministries, Athletes of Christ conducts a weekly Bible study and focuses on two annual events -- a 5K Run/Walk and a summer soccer camp for kids.
