Many Years Ago


Bob Allen, the founder was a player and a coach for many years. At a pivotal moment in his life, he had to surrender all things soccer for the good of his family. God used this to remove the pride and identity as a player and a coach and replace it with fatherhood.

Seven years later, Bob and his wife, Jeanne went to Haiti on a mission trip and there, God reintroduced Bob to the purpose of his passion for soccer – to love coaches and players. Bob struggled and searched for the purpose in this mission, and God slowly unfolded His plan through many trials and failures. When Bob reached absolute frustration, he surrendered this mission to God. 

2022  - 

In June 2022, after two years of being grounded by COVID travel restrictions, we returned to Tanzania and also went to Uganda. We delivered FC Grace core message to over 200 coaches. God did amazing work on this trip as many visitors to our training brought the core message back to their countries and have been delivering to coaches, prisons, universities and communities in Zambia, Burundi, Tanzania and Uganda.


The Lord continues to expand our reach for His glory. We will be holding conferences in Kenya, and will be exploring Malawi, Zimbabwe, DR Congo and Mozambique. We praise God for the spread of this message of Jesus Christ's love through soccer.

2017  - 2019

Six months later, Bob received a call from a pastor in Tanzania, and God began His plan for FC Grace in Africa. Through this plan, we executed and repeated this training program for hundreds of coaches in Tanzania. We brought this program to Ethiopia as well, and saw the Love of Jesus, administered through our team, change each coach.
