Description: Soccer is one of the favorite sports among the young people in Cambodia. The Methodist Church in Cambodia (MCC) has utilized soccer as a holistic platform to reach young men and women as well as children. Two districts, (Siem Reap and Bantey Meanchey) out of eleven districts, have grown with active youth groups, and soccer ministry has played a huge role in vitalizing churches. MCC would like to expand this sports ministry to other districts and churches.
