How big is Uttermost Sports?

We recruit sports people for both short-term projects and long-term placements overseas, maintain strategic relationships with churches and missions sending organization, and offer assistance and training to more than 50 workers in over 25 restricted-access countries. If you are interested in joining Uttermost Sports, whether in the USA or overseas, email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive information about current staff opportunities.
In how many countries do you work?
In our history, we have engaged more than 70 restricted-access countries located in North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. At any given time, we coordinate sports work in more than 20 countries and are always looking for more opportunities!
Are you like Christian secret agents?
Not at all! And actually, we detest the term 'Christian secret agent.' We don't falsely identify ourselves and sneak around in another country. We go where we are invited, offering the requested sports expertise, while blessing people in the process. The main purpose behind the career work of any Christian is to make disciples, and that is our goal — through our legitimate job in sports, we build genuine relationships and share the Hope we have in Jesus.
