A global game and a life changing message
SoccerPlus NZ began in 1998 with a three week mission to Singapore and The Czech Republic.
19 footballers from New Zealand (including an Iranian and a Glaswegian) set off to play and coach football while sharing the love of Christ.
It was a massive success.
Since then SoccerPlus NZ has been regularly taking the gospel around the world with the aid of a football. We have been to Germany, Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, South Africa, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile and Vanuatu.
The adventure continues with planned trips to Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Argentina, Nigeria, Uganda, Guinea Bissau, Solomon Islands and Bangladesh.
SoccerPlus NZ has also set up and run 30+ soccer camps for 9-12 year olds throughout the upper North Island of New Zealand. These run every holiday.
On top of that we have also run football weekend camps for people aged 13+. These camps are also designed to share about Jesus.
So, get to know us and maybe we can find a way to serve Jesus together.
