Have you ever heard of an organization called The Fellowship of Christian Athletes? It has been around since 1954 challenging the leaders in the athletic world to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
Known by the nickname FCA they promote a the core values of Integrity(Proverbs 11:3), Serving (John 13:1-17, Teamwork (Philippians 2:1-4) and Excellence(Colossians 3:23-24).
At the heart of FCA are coaches and their spouses. FCA desires to build these men and women up to know and serve Christ. With Bible studies, prayer support, retreats, and conferences they seek to encourage them.
FCA is also very active on campuses to help with evangelism and support for athletes, and coaches. Their summer camp options are another way they give further support. FCA is an international ministry that partners with existing international and sports ministries.
We love their sports specific camp locator on their website. Just plug in the sports you are interested and the location of these camps are available.
Thank you FCA for serving Jesus Christ in the arena of sports.
