Having been involved on the front line of football outreach for over twenty years internationally and since 2007 in Kenya, Ambassadors Football has had the opportunity to see first-hand a wide variety of methods and models of work. We love to train individuals in football outreach by providing:
– TREC Courses
– Training days
At the heart of our training is our desire to educate, envision and enable people from around the world to engage the football culture and their communities effectively so as to bring about transformation.
TREC (Training Resourcing and Equipping Churches/Coaches) is a three-tiered training programme designed to prepare and equip individuals and churches to run football ministry projects in the local community.
