The Fellowship of
Christian Athletes
  • By Todd Angel

About FCA
  • The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching
    millions of lives... one heart at a time. Since
    1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes 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 is the largest Christian sports organization
    in America. FCA focuses on serving local
    communities by equipping, empowering and
    encouraging people to make a difference for

The FCA Vision
  • To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ
    through the influence of athletes and coaches.

The FCA Mission
  • To present to athletes and coaches 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 FCA Values
  • Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast
    commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through
    Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.

  • We will demonstrate Christ-like wholeness,
    privately, and publicly.

  • We will model Jesus' example of serving.

  • We will express our unity in Christ in all our

  • We will honor and glorify God in all we do.

  • At the heart of FCA are coaches. Our role is to
    minister to these men and women by encouraging
    and equipping them to know and serve Christ. FCA
    ministers to coaches through Bible studies, staff
    contacts, prayer support, discipleship and
    mentoring, Behind the Bench (a program for
    coaches wives), resources, outreach events,
    national and local conventions, conferences and

Sport-Specific Ministries
  • FCA has experienced significant growth through
    our Sport-Specific Ministries in the past 5
    years. Currently, we have six Sport-Specific
    Ministries golf, lacrosse, baseball, fitness,
    motocross, and endurance. This has allowed us to
    go expand our ministry as we minister more
    effectively to the coaches and athletes in each
    of these sports.

The Vision
  • The vision of FCA's Sport-Specific Ministries is
    to minister to a community of people who are
    united around a particular sport. FCA
    Sport-Specific Ministries desire to reach and
    serve athletes, coaches, and volunteers to expand
    Gods Kingdom.

The Ever Growing Need
  • The need today is even greater to reach athletes
    and coaches different ways
  • A study shows that 41 million youth ages 6-18
    participated in organized youth sports and just
    over 7 million participated in high school
  • The impact opportunity is to reach more of the
    remaining 34 million youth who participate
    outside of high school sports and that we are not
    reaching in our Campus or Camps Ministries.
  • Our goal is to have 12 Sport-Specific Ministries
    in the next five years so that we can better
    reach the 34 million athletes that we can not
    reach through our other ministries. (Source

    Survey 2005, and the National Federation of State
    High School Associations, 2004-05)

The Specifics
  • We feel that Sport-Specific Ministry is a
    powerful way to do ministry, because the
    philosophy that people of sport best reach people
    of their sport is a focused approach.
    Sport-Specific Ministries partner with local FCA
    offices to have a greater impact.
  • Over the past thirty years, we have seen
    Sport-Specific Ministry work, because it combines
    three passions in a person's heart
  • 1. A passion for Jesus Christ
  • 2. A passion for their Sport
  • 3. A passion to reach people in their Sport

  • FCA is a fantastic way to get involved in a
    ministry that has great values and goals.
  • Mature in your Faith with others that love Jesus
    Christ and want to impact the World.
