Cup of Nations – Outreach Opportunity

May 25 @ 11:00 am4:00 pm

This year’s Cup of Nations will be Saturday, May 25th from 11:00am – 4:00pm at Hill Country Indoor in Bee Cave. Cornerstone has the opportunity once again to serve as a fan club for one of the teams. Possible teams include Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Cameroon, Congo, and Rwanda. This is a great opportunity to not just observe the games and watch the players, but to get to know them and the other spectators from different nations living within our own city. Having Christians on site aiming to be welcoming and friendly is key. Other churches/small groups will be participating as well.

Strategic relationships developed for Cornerstone members Jon & Pam Burris’s ministry, Nations Within Austin, after participating in last year’s Cup. Jon says, “We encourage our church to participate and pray as it really is a fun experience and great way to make a kingdom impact in the city among the nations God has brought here. We are praying that the Lord will use this to open the eyes of our hearts (in local churches) to see that the field is white for harvest.”

Cup of Nations is an annual futsal tournament (indoor soccer) where 8-12 teams represent their home countries. As of 2021, 18.5% of Austin residents are foreign-born. Our goal is to celebrate the beautiful diversity in Austin, compete at a high level, and connect people from all around the world in relationships.

Hill Country Indoor is located at 13875 Bee Cave Parkway, Bee Cave, TX 78738. Contact Jon Burris at jonleebee@gmail.com if you are interested in participating in this outreach.
