Men's Basketball Team Visits Greece



Ten members of Covenant College's men's basketball team, led by head coach Kyle Taylor, traveled to Greece in May 2011.

 

"The NCAA allows us to take an international trip and play games against foreign teams every three years," says Coach Taylor. "They don't really care much about the mission trip side of it, but for us at Covenant that's a big piece of it."

 

In the two-week trip, the group visited historical and biblical sites, partnered with local churches in service to communities, and played games with Greek teams, using basketball "as a tool to share the gospel and build relationships."
