Peru boasts one of the most sought-after physical challenges in the world: trekking the Inca Trail, which finishes at Machu Picchu. In just 26 miles (43km), the Inca Trail manages to combine beautiful mountain scenery, subtropical jungle, and a stunning mix of Inca paving stones, ruins, and tunnels. Starting at about 9,000 ft. (2,750m), the trail climbs to a peak elevation of 13,780 ft. (4,200m). Machu Picchu, the mysterious “Lost City of the Incas” built in the 1400’s, awaits trekkers at the trail’s conclusion. SF Peru staff and ministry leaders will accompany participants on the physical challenge. This shared time is designed to help participants create bonds with our team leaders and learn more about their heart for this ministry.
Up to 12 F3 men from Charlotte will spend 7 days together on a journey of learning, coaching and impacting lives. Sharing is the experience of life is the essence for fellowship and this promises to be an epic experience!
As God has continued to bless and grow this ministry, SF has most recently begun to launch its efforts within South America. Beginning with Peru in 2012, we are excited to see how God will use the universal language of sports to transform lives on another continent. SF’s vision is to mobilize a movement of Peruvian churches to use soccer (and other sports) to engage young people, many of whom are disconnected from the church.
In Peru, Epic Trip participants will have a chance to partake in and serve SF sports ministry programs. Visiting a weekly SF program will help participants better understand how the SF ministry model works on an ongoing basis. F3 will also have an opportunity to teach a group of coaches strategies for creating challenging physical workouts without using equipment.
