Empowering Resources

The focus of Sports Servants is empowering the children and adults of Belize to transform lives and communities through sports. However, this portion of the website is meant to serve Americans as a collection of resources from both the experiential learning Sports Servants has received in Belize, and the formal education on missions, crossing cultures, and World Christianity that our Founder, Zac Hood, has received from Regent College. We have selected the following subject areas as a way to explore major themes and wade out into deeper water. It is our hope that these resources can bring about change, however large or small, in your life, by seeing a depth to the Christian life through a calling to live missionally with God.
