We praise God that sixty-two volunteer Athletic trainers, strength coaches, exercise physiologists and students in these fields have served with AIA Sports Performance in 2017, setting a new record! Add to that ten athletic trainers on AIA staff who have served on tours this year and seventy-two professionals and students were involved in AIA mission teams!
Lives are being changed. Sometimes those are the lives of our staff and volunteers. Kyle, a strength coach, said “I have no words to describe the relationships that were built in a matter of days within our team, and with our new Honduran family.” Doven, a strength and conditioning student, said “Words can’t describe my experience. I’ve had a wonderful time growing spiritually, growing mentally and physically.” Katie, an athletic training student, said “Athletic training and my faith have been kind of separate…this internship showed how to combine those two, and really use athletic training for God’s glory.”
Get a head start on 2018 and check out how you can get involved! Each year AIA has domestic and international short-term mission opportunities for those wanting to experience a new culture in a rich community of faith. Why not consider serving with AIA sometime soon. Grow in your own faith and skills as you take this journey. Serve with competitive sports teams, camps and on educational mission tours. Use your skills internationally or here in the U.S. and watch God change lives, including your own.
