Why invest time, money and effort in fulfilling the mission of Jesus? Jesus’ teaching to his disciples in Matthew 9:37-38 is often and rightly highlighted: “He [Jesus] said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.’”
The vision of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is “to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.” In pursuit of that, FCA sends workers into the harvest field of sports. But if we are going to grow as disciples of Jesus, we must understand the context of this mission.
