FCA logoWith the new school year under way, ministry organization Fellowship of Christian Athletes is encouraging student athletes and coaches to share the Good News of Jesus on campus.

FCA is moving back to campus after wrapping up its summer camp season with nearly 800 events in the U.S. and around the world that reached 100,000 campers.  The sports ministry is challenging students and coaches to go back to their schools and make disciples for Christ, says FCA spokesman Jeff Martin.

"By nature,” Martin says, “being a coach, being an athlete, they have a platform and they have many times one of the largest concentric circles of influence that they're going to have in their life.”

There is also the reality, he continues, that the school years pass by quickly for every student, so it’s important to wake up every morning and understand that each day is an opportunity to serve the Lord.

A "Get Involved" section at FCA.org helps students learn about bringing FCA to their campus.
