What are sportspeople who have used the CallUp saying?



“This book is a gift to sports people like me because I know that my faith and my sport can’t be separated. At many times in my career I have faced difficult moments. I know that constant prayer, Scripture and fellowship with other Christians have helped me come through stronger than I would have done on my own. CallUp is a great resource – it’s filled with Scriptures and prayers specifically for the typical challenges we face in sport. It will be so easy to pull this out in the changing room and find a quiet moment to remember God and His purpose for my life and sport."

Brandon Petersen, South African International and PSL Soccer Player




"In sports we are regularly judged by our performance and we often make the mistake of allowing our identities to be rooted in our performances. The CallUp competitor's prayer book serves as reminder that our identity lies in Christ. The prayers in CallUp give us God's perspective reminding us that our identity is in Christ. He is the author and director of our faith and if we are rooted in Him we realize that our sport is a vehicle to worship Him and serve others as He leads us."

J.P Duminy-Former Proteas Cricketer





“I fell in love with CallUp the moment I first set eyes on it. It’s so easy to use God as a “Lucky Charm’ in life and sport. The prayers in this little booklet put God back at the centre where He belongs and invites sports people to acknowledge His unending love and allowing it to flow through our lives at all times.”

"Being in an industry that faces a lot of challenges, both positive and negative, it is vital that ones inner being and faith is being constantly supported. Whether you are far from home or in your home country, this book serves not only as a reminder that you are not facing these challenges alone, but that you are equipped with the tools to help you get through them as a sports person. Faith does not make things easy, it makes them possible."
