PASSION FOR SPORT
Sport dominates the media – it dominates lives. It develops motivation, team spirit, fills our recreation times and influences what we wear. If we don’t play it for real, we watch it, listen to it or play it virtually on our computers. For most it’s a pastime, for others it’s a living. For some it’s an obsession, and even a religion.
2K Plus International Sports Media exists for the sports fan. Our aim, simply, is to introduce the sport fan to Jesus and help sports fans who already know Jesus to grow in their faith.
We produce two weekly radio programs, Planet Sport and Planet Sport Football Africa, designed to bring fans of sport the latest news and stories with a Christian perspective. The shows are heard on over 50 radio stations worldwide and especially in Africa. You can hear both programs online at www.planetsport.tv and download them as podcasts from iTunes.
We also report from major sporting events with news and comment reflecting a belief in Jesus Christ. In Summer 2014 we produced radio programs in English and Spanish from the FIFA World Cup in Brazil that were heard on over 800 radio stations. These included Planet Sport Destination Rio, a show featuring news and reports from the soccer competition along with testimonies from some of the world’s top players and news of how followers of Jesus in Rio are responding to the many social challenges in the city in the name of Jesus. Over 700 listeners responded to the programs through Facebook and WhatsApp enabling us to share their passion for football and our passion for Jesus.
Prayer is the foundation on which ministry of Passion for Sport is built. As followers of Jesus we have the privilege of being His instruments as He builds His kingdom here on earth. Sign up to receive a monthly email bulletin of news and prayer points or to subscribe to Passion for Sport News.
