The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, one of my favorite organizations, does a tremendous job nationwide. FCA works hard to bring glory to God and minister to young people in schools and universities around the country. Its vision is to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and coaches. Athletes and coaches have a tremendous influence on people – especially on young people – and that influence can either be good or it can be bad. FCA wants to make sure that the influence is good. I commend them for their hard work and dedication.
My friend John Gibbons serves as Director for the FCA in Alabama. John, and all of the others on staff for FCA in the state, live by the words of Jesus when he says in John 15:8: “this is to my Father’s glory, that you shall bear much fruit, showing yourself to be my disciples.” Those who work in FCA are truly disciples who spread the Gospel message to student athletes and coaches on a constant basis.
The FCA had the opportunity in Alabama to minister on over 400 campuses throughout the state last year. There were approximately 475 coaches in Bible studies, and over 50,000 student athletes who attended FCA huddles, special events and summer camps. The goals in Alabama for this year are much higher. If reached, it will give FCA the opportunity to reach even more young people. Fortunately, they have a solid foundation from 2011 to build on.
In order for FCA to reach its goal in Alabama, they need an additional four staff members for this year. I believe their desire to take the life-transforming power of the Gospel into the junior high schools, high schools and colleges in Alabama will be fulfilled. That is my hope and prayer.
