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.
