Miracle Soccer Ministries

Miracle Soccer Ministries runs the Christian based Kingdom Football Academy in Kigali. It is led by Robert Rugema, an ex-Rwandan international footballer, pastor and businessman, alongside his team of willing volunteers. Robert has been a good friend of Equip for many years.

Many schools in Rwanda have no sports facilities, so to enhance their sporting skills, budding young Rwandan players are always looking for a community team where they can practice after school hours. Miracle Soccer Ministries believes that through the game of football they can change lives and shape communities, using it as a vehicle to share the gospel of Jesus. They not only work across churches to provide football training and youth competitions but also provide help for some of the more vulnerable families of these young people.

With teams for the Under 8s right the way through to the older teenagers, Miracle Soccer Ministries impacts almost 100 young people every week. Equip provides regular financial support and has also donated sports equipment and football kits.

Gloucester City AFC

Thanks to the generosity of Gloucester City AFC, Equip has been able to provide Kingdom Football Academy with large quantities of football kit. This has enabled funding to be diverted elsewhere such as into transport and pitch costs as well as supporting the more vulnerable families of Kingdom Academy.

Sharing The Gospel

Fundamental to Kingdom Academy is the desire to see its young people embrace the good news about Jesus. At each training session they are taught Christian values and Bible stories and they learn to pray before each match that they will play to glorify God.
