Who is ISF

Who is ISF

International Sports Federation (ISF)

Welcome to ISF Sports Missions. We run sports missions that reach the poor and marginalised with the good news of hope that Jesus brings to all who follow his way: a life that is vibrant, active and engaged with Him and with others. What better way than to do this through sports!

We especially work to mobilize University and College teams finding opportunities that enable your organization, and the volunteers within them, to fulfil your overall objectives in line with God's call to take the gospel to the ends of the earth, and to do this through the exciting world of sports.

When you serve with ISF you can expect several things. First, when you fill out a form from this website or contact us, a staff member will be in touch with you within the day. Then you will be matched with a project that fits your situation and then your team leader will help you with fundraising and general preparation for your project. ISF will be with you every step of the way and will handle all the details like food, lodging, transportation and airline reservations. Once on the mission field, you can trust that our leadership will be working hard to insure that you have a safe and meaningful experience as you seek to change the world through sports.

ISF Travel Plans and COVID-19

At ISF the safety of our volunteers is of premier importance. And, while there are many variables involved in international travel, we purchase comprehensive travel insurance for all our volunteers and work closely with our international partners to insure that all our teams are safe and secure. We also offer additional insurance options to cover the possibility of cancellation due to unforeseen events.

Certain projects will be postponed to the following year as the pandemic impacts the calendar. Keep checking the new dates.

What Others Say

Thoughts From ISF Alumni

Bruce Deaton

I am beyond excited to serve with International Sports Federation. My heart has been touched by the way they use sports around the world to share the Gospel. I know my players that have gone on an ISF project have been profoundly impacted and it is my goal to get as many players as possible to go on a trip before they graduate.

I had the priviledge to go with my son on an ISF basketball project to Madagascar. To say it was a life changing experience would be an understatment. I literally saw my son change right in front of my eyes. He and I both came away from the trip with a new appreciation for sports as a tool for missions as well as a better world view.

I was at a pivotal time in my life when I discovered ISF. I had no idea that sports missions even existed. I have loved and played soccer all my life and to be able to use it for missions has been amazing. I would tell you that if you have any desire to go on a sports mission trip with ISF to do it!
