Isaac Nelson


When Isaac was 18, he moved to Hungary to work with a church in Eger. While he was there, he had the opportunity to play with the local professional soccer team. As a player on this team, he found that he had many opportunities to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Seeing how God could use his love of sports as a platform to share his even greater love for Christ was life changing.

After his playing career ended, he began coaching. Billy Graham once said, “A coach will impact more people in one year than the average person will in an entire lifetime.” Isaac believes this level of influence provides Christian coaches with a unique opportunity to evangelize and disciple. With Athletes in Action, he works to use his platform as a coach to tell people about Jesus and disciple them, so that they can do the same. He also helps equip coaches to be more effective at using their platform to share the Gospel.

Isaac's mission is to build spiritual movements everywhere through the platform of sports so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.
