Upper90 Announces Pro Tour for 2021

Oct 26, 2021

Former professional footballer, now-turned chaplain and soccer ministry leader, Jorge Vallejo and his Upper90 Ministry have announced plans for their 2021 soccer ministry trip to Honduras. The team will get set to leave for San Pedro Sula from Atlanta this December to spend a week playing competitive soccer, hosting soccer clinics, and other holistic community development and outreach moments to at-risk children, orphans, local churches and many schools and soccer clubs.

Jorge, a long-time Atlanta resident, is a former professional soccer player who played in Bogota, Columbia for many years before coming to the US. In addition to serving as a head coach to several Bible college soccer teams, Jorge was part of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) for many years before founding Upper90. The ministry’s aim is to help not only children to win on the field, but in other aspects of life — mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
