Coaches Ministry

At the heart of FCA are coaches at every level.  Our goal is to encourage and equip them to  know and serve Christ and coach biblically with a purpose beyond wins and losses.  Greater Miami FCA ministers to coaches through Bible studies, coaches huddles, Legacy Builders, prayer, discipleship, mentoring, Behind the Bench (a ministry to coaches wives), resources, training, outreach events, retreats and conventions.   

So coach, don't journey alone!  Let your local FCA representative come along side and be the support you need  We have developed many resources with you in mind.

FCA Coaches Ministry is the ministry program to coaches through huddles, events, training and resources.

The Coach is one of the most influential individuals in our society.  It has been said that a coach will influence more people in one year than most people will in a lifetime.  FCA seeks to equip and encourage coaches to grow in their faith and become transformational in how they coach their athletes and influence other coaches.


An FCA Coaches Huddle is a small group Bible Study for coaches that coach teams at all levels on campus and in community club/travel sports. A Coaches huddle can consist of a coaching staff or it can be made up of coaches from various teams.

Where:The best answer to this question is “Wherever works best for the coaches involved.” Coaches Huddles meet in a variety of locations including rooms/offices on campus, restaurants/coffee shops, homes, etc. 

When: The best answer to this question is “Whenever works best for the coaches involved.” Many times the Coaches huddles on campus meet in the morning before school starts. Other coaches huddles will meet once a week at a pre-determined time (morning, noon or night) and location in the community chosen by the coaches.

The Coach's Mandate

Pray as though nothing of eternal value is going to
happen in my athletes’ lives unless God does it.

Prepare each practice and game,
giving my utmost for His highest.

Seek not to be served by my athletes for personal gain,
but serve them as Christ served the church.

Be satisfied not with producing a winning record,
but with producing winning athletes.

Attend carefully to my private and public walk with God, knowing that the
athlete will never rise to a standard higher than that being lived by the coach.

Glorify Christ in my coaching,
trusting the Lord will then draw athletes to Himself.

Desire to have a growing hunger for God’s Word,
a transformed heart and daily obedience.

Depend solely upon God for transformation,
one athlete at a time.

Live out Christ’s word in a Christ-like manner,
on and off the field of competition.

Recognize that it is impossible to bring glory
to both myself and Christ at the same time.

Allow my coaching to produce the fruit of the Spirit,
thus producing athletes who are authentic followers of Christ.

Trust God to reveal to my athletes His chosen purposes,
regardless of whether the wins are clearly visible.

Coach with humble gratitude,
as one privileged to be God’s coach.
