'Coaches of Influence', specialises in ministry to coaches at high school, college and professional levels, was initiated by Nelson Cook in 1988 after years of ministry with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
"My wife, Delma, and I have known Nelson for twenty-five years," explained M V Tronson. "Last February, we spent seven days with him in Los Angeles ministering to coaches at all three levels."
During that visit, Mark Tronson also spoke at Nelson Cook's church men's breakfast, the Yorba Linda Friends Church in Los Angeles. It is this church that is sponsoring the sports mission to India, as they have been ministering in India for many years. Their current plans include building 200 schools over a 10 year period.
They now wish to include a sports ministry component to their ministry in India, which will include coaching clinics in soccer, volleyball and cricket. The Yorba Linda Friends Church with their own network in the US, can supply soccer and volleyball coaches but not cricket coaches.
Nelson Cook is planning to travel to India in March-April 2010 to investigate the planning procedures for these sports clinics and M V Tronson may be joining Nelson Cook for part of his trip.
The actual tour to India with the coaches will occur during July and August. The security and safety at the Hockey World Cup just completed in Delhi, India may provide some comfort to anyone who may be a little hesitant over such issues.
Mark Tronson would like to invite any coaches interested in accompanying Nelson Cook on this ministry tour to India to contact him on – 0409 607 211 email@example.com
