Redeeming the World of Sport by Redeeming the People of Sport Relevant Gospel Outreach Through Sports / Part 2
This question is further underscored by the following:
With all of these efforts and resources, it might be assumed the world would soon become exclusively inhabited by Christians. Sadly this is not the case.

What follows shares the reality of how irrelevant the church has become but also the great opportunity the church has to reach the world for Christ, if it can create a vision for outreach that involves strategies relevant to those far from Christ. The development of such relevant outreaches begins by understanding the secular culture and the people who inhabit it.

 Matthew 28.18-20
