The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is one of my favorite organizations and for good reason. It does tremendous work nationwide, reaching young people and spreading the good news of the Gospel. Currently, more than 300,000 students are being reached on a record 8,088 school campuses across America. For those who are interested, FCA Resources.com provides over 3,000 free ministry resources. FCA’s online proficiency has allowed FCA to partner with and equip sports ministry leaders in 80 different countries.
The expansion of FCA International Ministry has continued at a rapid rate with training, resource expansion, mission trips and valued partnerships including Operation Mobilization SportsLink and the International Sports Coalition. Since 2003, FCA has distributed 1,516,400 Bibles worldwide, which includes eight different FCA Bibles. The following will give you an overview of what the FCA does:
• The Coaches Ministry: Coaches are the heart of FCA. The FCA ministers to them by encouraging and equipping them to know and serve Christ.
• The Campus Ministry: The Campus Ministry is initiated and led by student-athletes and coaches on junior high, high school and college campuses.
• The Camps Ministry: FCA Camp is a time of “inspiration and perspiration” for coaches and athletes to reach their potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training. FCA offers seven types of camps.
