The central aim of this course is to provide an introduction to Christian football ministry and to provide a solid foundation for those wishing to develop a football ministry within their own church or community. Designed by the team at international sports charity Onside Soccer, the course looks at football ministry from a practical perspective (planning training sessions, putting on events, coaching techniques, etc.) but also looks at mentoring and sports from a Biblical perspective.
The certificate will be made up of four main modules, with the first module a short introduction to the course and to Onside Soccer with the remaining three, more detailed, modules taking approximately 8-10 hours to complete. Once all four modules have been finished a certificate will be issued. Details of how to obtain your certificate are available at end of each module. Modules are, however, designed to be 'stand alone' learning opportunities and can be completed in isolation from one another.
Module 2 looks at the role of the Coach.
