About FCA

E-mail Print PDF
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is the largest Christian campus ministry in the world. It is on more campuses than the next three largest campus ministries combined. In the past year, FCA reached more than 350,000 people on over 7,100 campuses and worked with more than 46,000 coaches and athletes at camps across the globe.

The numbers for this ministry are staggering. Still, even though it's been around since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a mystery to many. Even the late Tom Landry, legendary Dallas Cowboys’ coach and lifetime trustee of FCA, used to call FCA “America’s best-kept secret.”

Most people have at least heard of it, but some of them can’t really say for sure what FCA is all about.

FCA’s purpose, at its absolute core, is to combine people’s passion for sports with their passion for Christ, and teach them that those two worlds don’t have to be separate. FCA wants to give meaning to the athletic nature that all of us are born with and use it for something that stretches beyond sports.

“We, as a ministry, get to reach people in a competitive mindset – coaches and athletes – and minister to their hearts,” said Dan Britton, FCA’s senior vice president of Ministry Programs. “We can speak your language. And we’re going to share something even greater than sports. We’re actually going to give sports their proper perspective. We’re going to give a foundation to the sports, so now, when you play, it makes sense.”

We live in a sports-crazed nation. It doesn’t take much research or analysis to figure that out. Sports, in some capacity, are a part of almost everyone’s life, whether it’s playing, watching, coaching or cheering. Even those who aren’t directly involved in athletics probably have a close friend or family member who is.

Sports are a part of our culture, neatly woven into our lives almost as much as home cooking or afternoon naps. They can dominate conversations at home or work. They cause us to get up early and stay up late.

But what if there’s something more to it all? Competing for yourself and your own glory shouldn’t be what it’s about.

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
