Christians gear up for Olympics outreach in Vancouver

Christians from around the world are poised to launch a large-scale evangelistic outreach Friday when the Winter Olympics begin in Vancouver, British Columbia, reports Charisma News Online.

As many as 3,000 missions workers from across North America and Europe are to be on hand to reach both athletes and the scores of international visitors expected to frequent the two major Olympics sites in Vancouver and nearby Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort Feb. 12-28.

Coordinated by the interdenominational ministry More Than Gold (MTG), volunteers will be stationed at 17 commuter stations across Vancouver, where they will help answer logistical questions and be a general love witness. There also will be 14 venues, including open stages, where Christian artists of various genres will perform for a total of 400 hours during the Olympics and the Paralympics for disabled athletes, which will immediately follow the traditional games.
