Charlotte Eagles - Brazil High School Tour
 
June 1-18, 2014
U19 Boys and U19 Girls 
 
The Charlotte Eagles are excited to be taking a U19 boys’ and U19 girls’ international tour for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the World Cup in Brazil. You will not want to miss experiencing the world’s greatest sports spectacle in a country that lives and breathes soccer. The country literally comes to a stop when the Seleção (national team) takes the field. While we desire to enjoy the passion and excitement of the Brazilian culture, we have a greater purpose in mind.
 
The Charlotte Eagles’ goal is to train and equip Christian athletes to intentionally use the game of soccer as a platform for sharing their personal faith in Jesus Christ. And beyond that we want to help train locals to do the same. We believe that an Eagles’ tour can have a lasting impact on how you view both the game of soccer and your individual walk with God.
  
Our time will promise to be a life-changing experience.  Before we depart for we will hold a three day training camp in Orlando, FL.  This time will involve intense soccer and sports ministry training.  During training camp we will train together on the field, build relationships as teammates and receive training on how to apply our faith to the field.  
  
While on the tour we will be partnering with local missionaries, churches and schools outside of Sao Paulo in the cities of Limeira, Americana and Jacutinga. From Jacutinga we will go to the World Cup host city of Belo Horizonte to work with a local church and experience the World Cup. We will be doing our sports ministry in partnership with Brazilian sports ministries and local churches.  Our days will be filled with clinics, friendly matches, traveling, and ministering with the youth from local churches. We will also find time to enjoy the friendly culture and natural beauty of Brazil as well. Oh yeah, we’ll also go to a World Cup game, too!
 
We will have soccer matches planned for almost every day of the tour, whether it is full field, 7v7 or futsal (indoor soccer with lines and a weighted ball). There are also schools lining up to have us come hang out and share with the kids. There will even be a day of ministry with an English school in Limeira that is run by a strong Christian and good friend of ours. A more detailed itinerary will be available soon.
 
How We Will Minister:
 
 1.      Relational Evangelism
 2.      Soccer Clinics/Camps
 3.      Post Game Events:
  • Presentations
  • Testimonies
  • Team Fellowship
The tour will stretch each individual player on and off the field.  The challenge for a true sports minister is to compete at his/her highest level while maintaining a strong testimony for the Lord.
The cost of the tour is $3800. 
This includes:  
  • Support Raising Materials
  • Game & Camp Costs
  • Room and Board - (Charlotte and Brazil)
