The Lay Witnesses for Christ International ministry has a three tiered approach for their ministry at each Summer Olympic Games.
First, their ministry team includes numerous former Olympic medallists such as Olympian of the Century, Carl Lewis; and Gold medallists such as Jo Deloach, Richard Bucknor, and Madeline Manning Mims (to name but a few). This enables a seamless 'connect' to Olympic athletes.
Second, their ministry has a focus on various ways to connect with people and to ensure ongoing discipleship for those who have made personal decisions to repent of their sin and follow Jesus as their Lord. It relies on fervent prayer, soul winning and linking into local churches and international ministries.
Third, they devote a great deal of energy to hosting 'Evenings with the Stars' at significant convenient venues. This enables members of local communities to come and hear first hand from Olympic athletes the reasons why they follow Jesus. In London these will be held over 10 nights across London hosted by various churches.
Many London churches have made their facilities available for these outreaches. To learn more of this London Olympic outreach: www.laywitnesses.com/olympic-outreach
