The sport of American football is gaining popularity in Prague. An Athletic Trainer will serve athletes from an American football team while working alongside experienced missionaries seeking to see everlasting change in a county of nearly 90% atheists. This person will desire to do ministry through sports medicine by speaking into the hearts of athletes within the realm of American football. Athletic trainers can speak into the lives of athletes in different ways than coaches can. This individual would also be connected to and serving with the local church and missional community.
This trainer will learn from a missionary who has worked with a local Prague team for more than 10 years and see young men come to know Jesus through American football. Some players attend church for the first time, and many others think about spiritual things for the first time in their lives. This is missional work, and the coach will help people get plugged into the local church in Prague. This opportunity ranges from 6 months to 3 years or more.
