Sports Fan Outreach International participates in the Great Commission by mobilizing, equipping and discipling teams of preachers and evangelists to proclaim Christ (Phil. 1:18) to fans at major sporting events like the Super Bowl, World Cup (soccer), Olympics, Final Four, and Rugby World Cup in the U.S.A. and around the world.
SFOI’s three distinctives are fellowship, teaching and outreach. Fellowship means that the Saints who participate are organized and minster together in teams and that the Saints’ accommodations are at the same location to facilitate interaction amongst everyone so they can get to know each other; teaching means that during the outreaches Pastors and Professors speak to us either about a specific topic or their area of expertise; and outreach means that the Saints are engaged in evangelistic outreach to the fans for six to eight hours per day.
SFOI now has established the George Whitefield Program which is for men who believed they are called to full-time evangelism. SFOI offers administrative support and practical and theological training for full-time evangelists.

Fellowship – Staying Together
One of the three primary distinctives of Sports Fan Outreach is fellowship. This is accomplished at multiple day events by staying at the same place and traveling together to and from the ministry location.
This constant time together allows for informal and ongoing conversations to occur throughout the duration of the outreach. Since we stay in same place conversations can begin first thing in morning over coffee and Bible study through to the evening when we end the day with prayer.
The time together bonds the team together in a God given way that is priceless. Christian fellowship has been bought with a price and to fully enjoy and maximize this gift is the purpose of the fellowship at SFOI events.
To fully participate in an SFOI outreach and to partake of this gift, you will be required to stay together at the accommodations provided for the entire event. If you chose not to stay with the group at the event, then you cannot take part in the outreach, as it is not productive to the three primary distinctives of Sports Fan Outreach and our policies.
