FCA: What it Means to Me

Fellowship of Christian Athletes: What it Means to Me  

           Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a program that focuses on serving local communities around the globe by engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to unite, inspire and change the world through the gospel. I was lucky enough to join FCA here on campus, the first year it started. From the very first meeting on September 20th, 2017, I knew my life had changed forever. I started out to be the only cheerleader attending the meetings, but as time went on, a few other cheerleaders started coming to meetings. Once we got a deeper understanding of what FCA was, the cheerleaders decided to start having our own group “huddles.” This specific huddle has gotten me to where I am today. Through FCA, I have gained confidence sharing my faith with others, I have made lasting friendships and I have grown as a person! This year I am lucky enough to be an FCA leader along with six other individuals. I recently lead a meeting with 50 other student athletes. Talk about stage fright! I was very nervous, but I had Dan and Lisa, my FCA family, and my cheer family there to support me. Another exciting thing that I am doing with FCA this year is that I am going on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic in January 2019! Look out for future posts about the trip ;) Without FCA, I don’t know where I would be. Dan and Lisa have welcomed me with their open arms, and I go to them with whatever problem I face. I am forever grateful for them and FCA. If you are interested in joining FCA, we have meetings every Wednesday night in Jefferson Hall at 9:15!
