For many years the Major Sports Events Chaplaincy Committee has been involved in advising local organizing committees (LOCs) on how to set up a successful chaplaincy programme at major international sporting events.
The Committee is passionate about providing Christian sports chaplains who;
- Are able to serve those of all faiths and none
- Are experts in pastorally serving the people of sport
- Have no agenda other than to provide spiritual and pastoral care
- Operate only where there is permission to do so
The MSECC is able to offer LOCs expertise in recommending experienced sports chaplains from around the world.
Our working definition of a Major Sports Event is one which involves more than one region/continent of the world. Thus the MSECC will be involved in selection of chaplains for E.g. Olympics, World Championships, World Cups, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Games.
