  Mai work

Missionary Athletes International (MAI) uses the world’s most popular sport, soccer, to create teams that influence people for Christ through a unique combination of soccer excellence, authentic community, ministry engagement and spiritual growth.

We believe that soccer teams can influence people for Christ and see God transform lives because:

Soccer is the world’s most popular sport
90% of people make decisions to follow Christ before the age of 18
A coach is one of the most influential figures in a young person’s life

 History of MAi 

In 1983 Tim Conrad had the vision to use the beautiful game to reach a lost world. A few years later a group of guys joined him as full time staff. For almost 40 years the organization has grown using soccer teams, soccer camps, and short term trips to share the gospel in the United States and in pockets around the world.
