Ministry to Olympic Athletes

Ad Feedback

CWN.org - The Chinese government has strict rules about foreign evangelism at the 2008 Summer Games -- it is forbidden.

According to my sources, trained missionaries from around the world were planning to come and share the love of Jesus Christ in China. But tight visa regulations and Olympic-related security restrictions have prevented many Christians from descending on the Games.

Athletes in Action, a Christian athletic ministry, has been granted permission by government officials to distribute a documentary, titled "Struggle and Triumph". According to Athletes in Action, the 26-minute DVD features some of the world's best athletes who share their passion for sport and faith.

Reid Lamphere, the global events director for Athletes in Action, shares more about the challenges of meeting the spiritual needs of Olympic athletes. Click the play button above for the interview.
