Briarwood Soccer Club
Welcome to Briarwood Soccer Club. We are the Ambassadors. Our name follows the spirit of II Corinthians 5:20, which states, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf to be reconciled to God.” We embrace the privilege we have to be ambassadors for Christ. The game of soccer is a world-wide passion. We strive to develop the best players and teams we can, while learning what it means to be an ambassador for Christ, and having fun doing it. “We serve a great God, we play a great game, we are ambassadors” is at the heart of everything we do.
