Friendship Soccer Ministry

Soccer is the most loved sport in Cambodia, so when Pastor San Sara wanted to start a sports ministry with Fellowship of Hope Church soccer was the obvious choice!

The aim of the soccer team is to take 25 young men from poor families and give them the opportunity to play their favourite sport wearing real soccer shoes and real uniforms, and at the same time encourage them to get to know Jesus.  In the first year of the program we saw at least 15 of our players become regular attendees at our church, and give or re-commit their lives to God.

We believe that sport is a powerful ministry tool and that by coming alongside these young men and helping them in other areas of their lives we can show them the love of Jesus in a practical way.

This team has been very successful since it began, even winning the premiership in the Cambodian Christian Soccer League in its first season!

There are also ongoing costs that we need to meet to ensure the team can continue into the future, with this adding up to about AUD$6,000 per year.  Would you consider sponsoring our team so that we can cover costs and expand the ministry in the following areas:

  • Weekly field rental and player transport fees
  • Registration fees for local competition
  • Assistance for players who wish to attend English classes, university and other study
  • Assistance for players who struggle with living expenses
