In this episode of Christians in Training, ‘King of Sport’ Peter Proud challenges Coach to train the most unlikely of characters, Ivor Wheezychest to beat him for the great sports tournament cup! Even though Ivor isn’t healthy, doesn't exercise and only eats fast food, Coach is determined to make a life changing difference for him by helping him train for the competition. Could Ivor be the next unlikely rising star? 

The way Coach wants to transform Ivor’s life is just like what God has done for us. When we used to be slaves to sin, God sent his son Jesus to set us free, allowing us to live a completely different life! Just like how Coach wants to see serious change in Ivor’s life, God wants to transform our lives by setting us free from sin, and giving us eternal life!

Suitable for 4-11 year olds, with age-appropriate variations.
