HELPING HEROES CHANGE THE WORLD

“NFL Football – it’s like watching modern- day gladiators in action. Every Sunday, some of the greatest athletes that have ever played the game strap on their battle gear and engage in fierce competition. They are trained to be intense, focused, disciplined, tough, and relentless. No wonder people all over the world view them as heroes.” 

– Former NFL player and current chaplain Anthony Johnson

Since the early ‘70s, AIA has been providing the NFL with chaplains who serve on a full-time basis as volunteers for league teams. The chaplains (and their wives) work to meet the spiritual needs of coaches, players, team executives and their spouses. This is accomplished through weekly Bible studies (studies are available for players, coaches and couples), one-on-one mentoring, equipping sessions, chapel services and outreaches around the world.
