We exist to educate and empower youth all over Colombia, South America. We do this through sporting activities, education, mentor relationships, and community outreach.
Uniting the body of Christ to care for youth & adolescents in their specific physical, mental, and spiritual needs; developing them into leaders to give back to the community, as ONE.
Our main purpose is to unite the Body of Christ by creating connections with local nationals. We do this by meeting the needs of the people right where they are as we share and show the love of Christ through our words and actions. ONE Ministry Foundation has two main functions in how we embrace those around us.
First, we team up with local churches and host community events where we hold classes that help bring and strengthen families together. We address major issues that are causing the most damage to the community and family as a whole. Each class is Biblically based. For adults, we address conflict resolutions. For teens, we address abstinence and good decision making. For the kids, ages 7-10, we address Salvation in Christ.
Second ONE Ministry Foundation also operates as STRIVE Sports Ministry. We use our athletic background to use sports as a platform to encourage youth in their respective sports. We host SAQ (Strength, Agility, and Quickness) Camps where we bring in current and former college athletes to help young athletes, not only physically, but spiritually as well. We present "Life Points," which promotes good decision making on and off the field, and we share personal testimonies of our relationship and faith in Christ.
We serve the churches and barrios of Medellin (med-eh-JEEN), Bello (BEY-jo), and newly added Coveñas, in Colombia, South America.
We moved to Medellin in May of 2015.
