WHO WE ARE

We use the international language of sports to mobilize the gospel centered work of churches and sports chaplains around the world. Since our founding in 1996, we’ve worked with thousands of churches and chaplains in more than 100 countries.

Cede Sports creates the infrastructure and support to empower the day-to-day work of Cede Partners and Cede Network. We are based upon a belief which is encapsulated in the word cede. Cede means to relinquish or yield control. We work to see God glorified and others succeed. It is who we are.
