What is FCA?

 
 The Fellowship of Christian Athletes 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 platform of sport to reach every coach and every athlete with the transforming power of Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities around the globe by engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to unite, inspire and change the world through the gospel. 

VISION

 

To see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

 

MISSION

 

To lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church.

 

STRATEGY
 

To and Through the Coach

 

We pursue our vision and mission through the strategy of to and through the coach. We seek ministry first to coaches hearts, marriages and families.   Then, when ready, we minister through coaches to their fellow coaches, teams and athlete leaders.

 

Billy Graham said, “A coach will impact more people in one year than the average person will in an entire lifetime.” With the influence of a coach, FCA recognizes the most strategic way to reach more athletes is to first reach the coach.

METHODS

 

As FCA matures, we seek to make disciples through our methods of engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to know and grow in Christ and lead others to do the same.

 

Engage
 

 

(1 Thessalonians 2:8)

 

We engage relationally by connecting with individuals and through events in many different environments by building genuine trust, sharing our lives and sharing the gospel. We strive to connect with coaches and athletes where they are on their spiritual journey. 

 

Equip 

 

(Ephesians 4:12)

 

After cultivating relationships and once coaches and athletes come to faith in Christ, we want to equip them with Christ-centered training, events, resources and on-going support in what it means to be a follower of Christ, growing in God’s Word and applying it to life.  

 

Empower 

 

(2 Timothy 2:2)

 

Once equipped, we empower faithful leaders who desire to use their time, talents and treasures to help other coaches and athletes experience the gospel, grow in their faith and share Him with others. We desire to develop disciples who make disciples, assisting them so that they can in turn engage, equip and empower others to know and grow in Christ and lead others to do the same. 



FAITH + SPORT = FCA

 Unite your two passions, faith and athletics, to impact the world for Jesus Christ.  We've been on one mission for over 60 years.
