Fellowship of Christian Athletes Thankful for God’s Many Blessings

November 25, 2019

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Families around dinner tables this week may talk about their thankfulness for healthy parents and children, warm homes, Bible-believing churches and much more.

This Thanksgiving, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) is also grateful for the way God has blessed the ministry and the coaches and athletes worldwide it serves. This month, FCA is marking 65 years of staying true to the mission of leading every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church.

“The entire Fellowship of Christian Athletes family is thankful for the opportunities to do sports ministry every day,” said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. “Through our staff and leaders around the globe, we engage, equip and empower coaches and athletes to share the Gospel in all corners of the world. As our ministry continues to expand, we give all of the glory to God. For more than 65 years, we’ve rallied our team around the Great Commission and put God’s Word at the forefront of our plans. As we step back and review our past year, we’re humbled at what God has done.”

FCA experienced tremendous growth and record-setting numbers in reaching approximately 2 million coaches and athletes as it ministered “To and Through the Coach” internationally. While the ministry is more about touching the lives of coaches and athletes—one heart at a time—these figures show the incredible impact God has made through FCA.
