Three of Northern Ireland’s top sports personalities will talk about their lives as Christian players next Wednesday, February 26, at Craigavon Leisure Centre.
Christian Vision for Men (CVM) represent the Christian players at Ulster Rugby. With several key local and international Christian players at Ulster, the club has seen a tremendous turnaround in the last five years both on and off the field.
This has led to an influx of requests from churches and other organisations throughout Northern Ireland and beyond. The players have so many demands on their time, not least with their own family and church commitments - yet are still very keen to reach as many people as possible with the life changing message of Jesus Christ.
CVM have embarked on a tour of Northern Ireland with the players, hosting events each year in specific areas. Using CVM’s four level evangelism strategy all the churches and organisations from one area are to join together for a great night out where players such as Johann Muller, Ruan Pienaar and Paul Marshall will share their life changing stories.
Next Wednesday in partnership with local churches in Lurgan, Craigavon, Dollingstown and Waringstown Johann Muller, Ruan Pienaar and Paul Marshall will be in Craigavon Leisure Centre to talk all things rugby and to share their faith. They will be interviewed by Mark Simpson from the BBC.
“Together with Johann Muller, Paul Marshall and other people we have managed to do some things off the pitch that has been important to me. I want to continue touching peoples lives with my Christian life and I think that at the end of the day is bigger than my rugby career,“ said Ruan Pienaar.
