2019 Craven Week
SCAS had an opportunity to place chaperones with each of the 46 teams at the under 18 Craven & Academy Week in Bloemfontein. It was an incredible privilege of ministering and serving the 1380 players and coaches from all over Southern Africa. After the 3-day training camp the chaperones were strategically placed with a team based on where they’re from. They started SCAS huddles with their teams and hopefully will continue with it when they return home.
Going into the tournament our prayer was that God would open doors for us to share the gospel with the players and coaches. That came about in a wonderful way. The teams were invited to a church service on the Sunday evening before the tournament started, where more than 600 players committed and/or recommitted their lives to God. During the week our chaperones followed up with Bible studies as well as one-on-one conversations.
We are very grateful to all the chaperones who volunteered and gave up time to be trained and serve at the Cravenweek. The way the chaperones worked together as a team set the example for the players and their teams. Thank you, gentlemen, we are very proud of you, you served with distinction!
