SEED Program is Back!

After needing to press pause on international travel and the SEED program for the last two years, we’re excited for the opportunity to send four teams out this summer.

The first two teams return to campus for pre-trip training on May 23 before officially launching on May 24, 2022. At Hope College, we recoginze that sport provides an opportunity for athletes to have a significant platform from which to influence others and are excited to see how God uses the passion and talents of our student-athletes as they serve internationally.

One team will travel to the Dominican Republic to partner with GO Sports. GO Sports rallies around discipleship and relationships and “are a group of coaches and teachers who love Jesus, are passionate about sport, and want to see the next generation thrive.” This team will attend Bible and English classes with local athletes and help facilitate sports practices with their various teams.

The second team will head to Uganda where they will partner in the on-going work of Sports Outreach. While on the ground in Uganda, our student-athletes will run various sport clinics, attend local soccer matches, and connect with families in the community. The mission of Sports Outreach is, “to recruit, train, equip, and deploy committed Christian leaders in the effective use of sports ministry for the purposes of sharing the Gospel and alleviating human suffering.”

Both trips will also distribute Sawyer water filters and bring the gift of clean water to individuals around the world.

Take a look at the trip calendars below to follow along with our teams. And, be sure to check back in over the next two weeks for blog updates from student-athletes!
