Formed in 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is focused on providing young believers with an opportunity to develop their God-given athletic skill in an environment which encourages Christian growth and interaction. Today, on nearly 8,000 campuses across the nation, FCA is offering High School and College students and opportunity to join together and make a difference both on and off the playing field… and you can be a part!
The website is extensive, so here are a few of my favorite links. I recommend that you start by signing The Competitor’s Creed, then sign up for the Daily Impact Play devotional where you can explore Scripture from an athlete’s point of view! You can even check out the FCA Magazine where you’ll find everything from news to inspiring stories about Christians in sports.
Want more? Check out FCA’s sport-specific fellowship sites. Pages for baseball, cheerleading, cyclists and triathletes, golf, hockey, lacrosse, motocross, skateboarding, soccer, softball, wrestling, surfing, and a variety of other outdoor sports offer more great ways to participate in a community of Christian athletes!
Looking for something to do in the “off season”? Take a moment to check out one of FCA’s sports camps – a great place to improve your skills while enjoying Christian coaching and fellowship! Or get your whole team involved through a team camp!
