To lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church is the purpose of the Fellowship Of Christian Athletes.

“I  think it’s important for young adults to recognize the gospel and I believe that FCA is the perfect way for students to hear and learn about Jesus at school,” Makenzie Rankin said.

The campus FCA group is led by students that want to make a difference in someone’s life by introducing them to God. The program is for athletes and coaches only.

“Earlier in the week we had a guest speaker who talked about his life in Brazil with his family on missionaries, Rankin said. “The guest speaker did an awesome job of ministering and leading everything back to scripture in such a unique way.”

Middle school teachers, Amy Heim and Joey Bohn help facilitate FCA for middle school.

“At some point in everyone’s lives they go to school,” Heim said. “We all know that teens are going to “join” something; they are desperate for the feeling of belonging. FCA gives students a fighting chance to join with Christ.”  

FCA meets every Wednesday during lunch in Room 114.
