The Four C’s of Ministry:
The Coaches Ministry focuses on ministering to the heart of the coach first, and then through the coach by engaging them with the Four C’s of Ministry. The types of Coaches Ministry are: Coaches Huddles, Coaches Conventions, Training Clinics and Coaches Retreats.
Coaches are the heart of FCA. Our vision is to see coaches transformed who then by their coaching bring transformation to the people of sports. We desire to see biblical coaches who are Christians who happen to coach, rather than just coaches who happen to be Christians. When coaches become followers of Jesus Christ, their character, their relationships and their approach to coaching will be authentic.
The Campus Ministry is a certified ministry that is initiated and led by student-athletes, sponsored by coaches, supported by staff, established on junior high, high school or college campuses and meets on a regular basis.
The types of Campus Ministry are: Club Huddle, Team Huddle, Chaplain Huddle and Coaches Huddle.
The school campus can be one of the most strategic mission fields with many youth passing through this portal. FCA focuses on equipping, enabling, empowering and encouraging student-athletes, coaches and adult leaders to impact and influence their campus for Christ.
An FCA Camp is a certified ministry event that uses the annual theme and scripture for athletes and coaches to develop athletic skills, create influential relationships and encounter Jesus Christ.
The types of Camps are: Sports, Leadership, Coaches, Power, Team, Partnership and International. Camps are a time of “inspiration and perspiration.”
FCA provides athletes and coaches the opportunity to reach their God-given potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training in a camp environment. We create an athletic environment that produces spiritual transformation in the lives of coaches and athletes in a camp setting.
The Community Ministry is the off-campus opportunities to reach coaches and athletes through the club and recreation sport environment.
The types of Community Ministry are: Team Huddle, Chaplain Huddle, Coaches Huddle, Club Huddle and FCA Sport Teams. With the majority of athletes playing sports in the community (non-campus programs), FCA is ministering to the club, recreational and youth sports teams with the goal of establishing on-going ministry for coaches and athletes to compete for Jesus Christ with character, passion and excellence
