What is FCA? 

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is touching millions of lives… one heart at a time. Since 1954, FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high, and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering, and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

 

The FCA Vision

To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.


The FCA Mission

To present to coaches and athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.


The Four C’s of Ministry

Coaches Ministry: The Coaches Ministry vision is to redeem sports through transformed coaches. FCA ministers to coaches through Bible studies, prayer support, discipleship and mentoring, resources, outreach events, and retreats.

Community Ministry: The “win” of Community Ministry is to see the community reached for Jesus Christ through adult involvement. FCA partners with local churches, businesses, parents, and volunteers to invest in coaches and athletes participating in club, recreational, and youth sports teams. FCA Teams have also been created to impact the sports community. Other areas of Community Ministry include adult ministries, professional athlete ministries, resources, and clinics.

Campus Ministry: The Campus Ministry is initiated and led by student-athletes and coaches on junior high, high school, and college campuses. It has four ministry types: Huddles, Team Bible Studies, Chaplain Programs, and Coaches Bible Studies. Additionally, outreach events take place on the campus such as One Way 2 Play — Drug Free programs, school assemblies, and the annual Fields of Faith event.

Camp Ministry: Camps are a time of “inspirations and perspiration” for coaches and athletes to reach their potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual, and leadership training. FCA camps include: Sports Camp, Leadership Camp, Coaches Camp, Power Camp, Partnership Camp, Team Camp, and International Camp.
