While we have a passion for the nations, we also want to make an impact in the community in which we live. We partner with churches, ministries, soccer clubs, and apartment complexes to fulfill our mission to bring hope. Our model involves teaching youth clinics in the greater Dallas Metroplex area by focusing on teaching kids soccer skills and more importantly, teaching them the traits of a true champion. We teach them the six pillars of a true champion by using biblical references along with soccer. The pillars are: Excellence, Dream Building, Selflessness, Perseverance, Responsibility, and Faith. We will take similar methods of ministry to different countries to tell children and adults about Christ’s love and the grace He freely offers.
What I love about ANS ministry is that it’s made up of 3 awesome elements God, kids and soccer! It was my pleasure serving with them locally, especially since my daughter was serving right next to me.Jannet Campos -Teacher.
“As an educator, I firmly believe that “It takes a village to raise a child.” I see many of our youth looking for a place to fit in and call home. By linking up with local outreach facilities, we are able to use the game of soccer to connect with kids in the community, have fun, lead them in a prayer of salvation, then connect them back to the local outreach center for follow up. Our goal is to not just attract the kids for the small time we are there, but rather create a trusting relationship between the local ministry and the youth.”Stephanie Goncalves- Vice President ANS Ministries, Inc.

ANS Character Development Camps
Annually, we partner with local churches to run soccer camps for their communities. The ANS Camps focus on character and leadership development as different soccer skills are taught through the camp’s curriculum. We use church members as volunteers who serve as camp counselors and coaches. The volunteers are often teenagers and college students who love soccer and enjoy to teach the younger ones, however, all ages are welcome!
“I had a lot of fun working with the kids in soccer camp! Teaching them God’s word and being their coach for a week was an amazing experience. I look forward to it every year! “Rachael Holden - Student & Soccer Athlete at NTU.
“The ANS Camps have proven to be very effective in building camper and counselors confidence on all levels; character, leadership, and soccer. We are about building strong kids physically, emotionally and spiritually. “Thiago Goncalves - President ANS Ministries, Inc.
