Since 1966, Athletes in Action has been a global pioneer, innovator, and servant leader in sport ministry. AIA exists to change lives by building spiritual movements everywhere through the platform of sport: on the field, in the locker room, and under stadium lights. By speaking the language of sport-a language that breaks barriers, transcends differences, and is understood by virtually all-AIA brings Jesus and His message of victory into the hearts, homes, and communities of millions around the world.
As of 2013, AIA has a ministry presence in over 100 countries, on nearly 125 U.S. college campuses, and on 35 U.S. professional sports teams. Countless volunteers, thousands of athletes and more than 500 staff members stand together to share one message: Life’s greatest victory is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Athletes in Action is a branch ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ, International, known as Cru in the U.S. For more on Athletes in Action’s global ministry please click here.
