Mission Spotlight: FCA: Fellowship of Christian Athletes

imagesFellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is a partner ministry of The Crossing. Scott Ashton, the Mid-Missouri Director for FCA summed up their ministry this way, “We are unashamedly in support of the local church: leading [coaches and athletes] to [their] local church where they can be realigned to the gospel week after week. I’m on staff now because I was reached with the gospel through a Huddle and through a coach’s influence in high school. All these different specific ministries are needed because what reaches one kid or coach may not reach another.” FCA is volunteer-intensive ministry focused to and through the coaches because they are the ones who have the influence. It’s almost always messy. FCA works with each coach and school and sport differently. Nothing can be cookie cutter because each situation is different.
