In Deo Speramus, Pro Deo Ludimus

We are…

  • A movement of athletes seeking to honor God in sport and life.
  • A bunch of broken people who don’t have it all figured out.
  • A support network.
  • A mix of varsity, club, friends of, and former athletes.
  • A hodgepodge of spiritual, social, economic, and geographical backgrounds.
  • A Community.

Athletes in Action (AIA) is an interdenominational Christian fellowship for any/all college athletes. AIA exists on college campuses throughout the country as well as in many nations around the world. AIA at Brown has a desire to serve the Brown athletic community, providing a support network for students and coaches to find help and encouragement. AIA exists to help transform student-athletes into people who will become Total Athletes, people who maximize the unique potential for which God has made them, and people who pursue to honor God in and through sport, academics, service, leadership and their future careers.

One of our goals is to help student athletes use the platform of athletics to promote positive change in their personal lives and in society through a relationship with God. We offer specific opportunities for student-athletes to learn how faith in Jesus Christ can impact their lives in the midst of the unique challenges and demands of sports and college life.

Members of AIA at Brown range anywhere from the serious varsity athlete to the casual or club athlete. Anyone interested in learning more about God, how it is possible to have a personal relationship with him and/or how to become a “Total Athlete” is welcomed to join us. AIA also organizes numerous activities, including Bible studies, social events and a variety of community service opportunities.

Athletes In Action at Brown is a Brown University Student Group and affiliated with the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life.
