Extreme Challenge Puerto Rico (ECPR) is a two-week life-changing adventure targeted at launching Athletes in Action movements on university campuses in Puerto Rico and in the United States. Over your two weeks in Puerto Rico you will join 60+ American, Puerto Rican, and Latin American athletes and learn how to take your relationship with God and your performance as an athlete to the ultimate level.
Week 1: You will learn how to blend faith and sport together on the field of competition. You will learn five Biblical Principles and then put those principles to the test every day and then in a 20-hour sports marathon known as The S.P.E.C.I.A.L. You will learn how the gospel of Jesus Christ impacts your sport and all of life.
Week 2: During the second week, we will equip you to become a "spiritual team captain" when you return to your campus. You will learn how to engage in spiritual conversations, share Christ with others, and help others grow in their walk with God. ECPR will bless others and challenge you to a lifetime of leadership for the kingdom of God! And yes, you will get to explore the breathtaking beauty of the island while you are there!
