Fellowship of Christian Athletes Announces 2020 Ministry Theme of ‘100%’
In 2019, 89,000 Coaches and Athletes Strengthened Their Skills and Faith at 800 Camps in 42 States and 55 Countries
January 21, 2020
KANSAS CITY, Mo.—When you love something, you give it your all.
That’s the inspiring call behind the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ (FCA, www.fca.org) 2020 ministry theme—100%—which will guide the entire year of events, studies, gatherings, Camps and more.
What does your sport require of you? 100% of your time, attention, ability and ambition. Your sweat becomes a sacrifice. Your pain becomes your passion. Your dedication achieves your dream. When we give 100%, we are changed for the better.
Likewise, Jesus Christ gave 100%—His very life—so we may receive a personal relationship with Him. His love, His sacrifice, His service and His passion are 100% for us. When we give Jesus 100% of our heart, soul, mind and strength, our lives will be transformed. FCA asks of coaches and athletes: What will your response be?
“All of us at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes are energized, motivated and ready to charge into 2020 ‘All In’ for Jesus,” said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. “Mark 12:30 calls us to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ This year’s ministry theme of 100% will utilize these words to challenge coaches and athletes towards giving their all—in faith, sports and life.”
More about FCA’s 2020 ministry theme of 100% can be explored at www.fcacamps.org, where visitors can also watch the 100% theme video as well as the 2020 Camps video. FCA also offers an outline to coincide with the 100% theme that addresses sacrifice, surrender, surround and serve over four days of Camps, events or other meetings.
- 100% God (Sacrifice)
Key Bible Verse: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”—John 3:16
Key Point: God gave 100% by sacrificing His Son.
- 100% Self (Surrender)
Key Bible Verse: “My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”—Galatians 2:20
Key Point: We give God 100% by surrendering our lives.
- 100% Team (Surround)
Key Bible Verse: “Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.”—Philippians 2:2
Key Point: We give 100% by surrounding ourselves with committed teammates.
- 100% Others (Serve)
Key Bible Verse: “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”—Mark 10:45
Key Point: We give 100% by serving and leading others into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
This past summer, more than 89,000 campers participated in 800 FCA Camps in 42 states across the country and 55 total countries around the world for a time of “inspiration and perspiration.” FCA Camps take the best attributes of an athletic-focused camp and a spiritual-focused camp and combines them into an athletic/spiritual experience like none other. FCA Camps remove athletes and coaches from the routine of their sport, friends, co-workers and community, and place them into an exciting, healthy, athletic environment that allows them to pursue their passion for sport and clearly see and hear Christ’s passion for them.
The life-changing impact on coaches and athletes has been the main focus of FCA Camps since 1956. Today, competitors who want to reach their potential through comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training attend a variety of Camps, including Sports Camps, Power Camps, Coaches Camps, Team Camps, Leadership Camps, Partnership Camps and International Camps.
In 2019, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes also celebrated its 65th year in existence. After extensive growth, FCA has reached millions of people with the Gospel. View a timeline of FCA’s 65-year history here, including videos, quotes, articles, leader profiles, Camp themes, photos and more.
