FCA logoA sports ministry is leveraging its opportunities with coaches and athletes to get the Bible to people all throughout the world.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is globally distributing God's Word, getting Bible resources that contextualize the sports experience into the hands of athletes and coaches. Through this effort, Dan Britton, FCA executive director of international ministry, says the organization is not just positioned as a sports outreach.

"FCA is actually positioned even as a Bible ministry," he tells OneNewsNow. "We want to engage coaches and athletes around the world in God's Word. Just last year, in 2018, we distributed 230,000 Bibles worldwide, and over the last 15 years, we've had the blessing to place 2.5 million Bibles into people's hands."

Distributing FCA Bibles in other countries and even offering translations in various languages has been a relatively new aim for the 65-year-old international sports ministry. But Britton says God has already done amazing things.

"We've had the chance to translate it in dozens of languages with the help of our local leaders, and so it's exciting to be able to see languages like Vietnamese, and Thai, and Ukraine, and Russian, and Spanish all being utilized at the local level," the ministry spokesman shares.

Britton says the FCA is seeing a significant hunger for more Bible products like the Athlete's Bible, the Coach's Bible, the Sports New Testaments, and even sport-specific Bibles.
