Athletes InterVarsity Uganda Global Program

This Global Program is a partnership in mission between Athletes InterVarsity, Global Link Afrika, and ChildVoice International as we join in God’s global kingdom movement throughout Uganda. During this trip, we will be integrated as one team, listening, learning, worshipping and serving together alongside of ChildVoice International who serves women and children impacted by war and poverty in Gulu, Uganda. Our hope is that student athletes will grow and develop into extraordinary kingdom leaders through engaging in what it means to abide in Jesus: to receive from Him, not in our productivity or accomplishments, but in who we are and in whom He has called us to be. We will be challenged in our perspectives on life and culture as we learn to see the world through new lenses of faith and life outside of the USA, expanding our understanding of who God is and His call for our lives.
