Churches taking the track
Six major evangelical churches from across the island will come together to challenge each other for the Kindred Sports Challenge Trophy at the National Stadium on April 21.
The event was started two years ago with three churches and has grown to include six churches with thousands of members and supporters. Covenant Life Teaching Centre (CLTC) is the reigning champion. This year, the Green Hill, St Michael church will be challenged by Power in the Blood Assembly, Sanctuary Empowerment Centre, Restoration Ministries, Kingdom Life Assembly and Love & Light Ministries.
This sports meet will begin with a parade of athletes where each church will render a challenge song and make a presentation. This will be included in the points tally for the day. Pastor Wesley Dear, founder of the event, said they were all looking forward to the big day.
“The athletes, from the youngest NAPSAC runners, to the BSSAC powerhouses, to the Senior Games participants, and then those who just want to have some fun and score a few points for their churches, will all be coming out on April 21 to try to win the challenge trophy,” Pastor Dear said.
He added that all the pastors were fully on board with the event.
“We are glad for this opportunity to showcase a mix of healthy activity, brotherly competition and all-round wholesome fun for the family.”
The Kindred Sports day begins with a parade at 9 a.m.
