Currently, the demolition of families within communities and the associated fatherlessness (physically and emotionally absent) is the single largest problem area in the world. In the Western and Southern Cape, Ben Marais tries to address it through sports and games. Sports Ministry is currently operating in more than 170 countries around the world.
Sport, like football and cricket, was already used from the 19th century to share the Gospel with the people of Africa. In this way contact with strangers was made easily, relationships were built and the Gospel was shared.
Witness Ministry funds Ben Marais to guide congregations with this. Ben represented the DRC family in TUG (The Ultimate Goal) as pastor of the sports and games ministry during the Soccer World Cup in 2010. Currently Ben works as a leader of Ambassadors Football (http://za.ambassadorsfootball.org/) in South Africa.
Ben works within the Western and Southern Cape Synod and serves the entire DRC family.
