FCA Encourages Coaches and Athletes to Seek God in Every Element of Life, Both On and Off the Field
January 5, 2022
Every repetition adds up for a coach or athlete. Every practice matters. Every play counts. Athletes give every effort and all of their energy to their sport, team and even fans. Oftentimes, it’s the world’s approval that fuels the enthusiasm and passion athletes have to be the best at their sport.
However, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) reminds Christian athletes that they already have everything they need in Christ. It’s the foundation of the FCA 2022 ministry theme—Every. It’s Christ’s approval they should be after and for His glory that they should be putting on their jersey or picking up the playbook and whistle. Once coaches and athletes realize this, they will be able to live every day as unto the Lord and receive the spiritual blessings He has in store.
This theme will guide the entire year of events, studies, gatherings, Camps and more.
“Now more than ever, FCA is ready to reach EVERY coach and athlete in every level and field,” said FCA president and CEO Shane Williamson. “We’re called to unity, and to make disciples from every nation, and I can’t think of a better ministry theme than ‘Every.’”
Throughout the year, FCA will be creating content and telling a story that focuses on what it means toseek God in every element of life, both on and off the field. The four elements of Every that FCA will be exploring this year are Everything In Christ, Everyone Through Christ, Every Way Like Christ, and Every Day With Christ.
“Our theme verse, Ephesians 1:3, encourages us that as children of God, we have every spiritual blessing in Christ,” continued Williamson. “This brings great hope as we reach out to coaches and athletes with the good news of the Gospel.”
The theme will be kicked off by “Every Challenge,” which is designed to help coaches and athletes remain grounded in their identity in Christ and dive deeper into God’s Word through daily devotionals.

FCA also offers an outline to coincide with the Every theme that addresses Everything, Everyone, Every Way and Every Day over four days of Camps, events or other meetings.
