Fellowship of Christian Athletes Celebrates the ‘Life-Changing Impact’ Experienced by So Many This Season and Beyond

August 16, 2021

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As many children across the U.S. begin to think of school days ahead, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) is continuing to celebrate a 2021 summer Camps experience that has brought—and is still bringing—God’s untold blessings on thousands of coaches and athletes worldwide. Plenty of FCA Camps are still in session throughout August and into September and attendance is pointing toward another record-high season.

The numbers tell their own story. For the immensely successful 2019 Camps season (the last regular Camp season before COVID-19), FCA welcomed an astonishing 89,323 coaches and athletes who attended 805 Camps in 42 states across the U.S., plus 92 nations around the world. That was nearly double the number of countries with FCA Camps in 2018.At these FCA Camps in 2019, 20,526 people made faith decisions for Christ.

Says FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson, “We thank God for the ability to impact lives through hundreds of FCA Camps every summer. Since 1954, our goal has been to transform the world for Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. More than six decades later, we are still amazed that lives are being changed through the love of Christ experienced at Camps, and we pray these amazing experiences will continue for many years to come.”

This summer of 2021, both FCA campers and leaders revealed the power of their Camps experience:

And this standout observation from a recent FCA Camps leader is particularly memorable as well:

FCA’s theme for 2021 is Pursue, based on 1 Timothy 6:11: “Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.” FCA encourages its members to pursue God’s use of His Word as an anchor, grounding Christians as they look to His Kingdom.

Since 1956, the impact on coaches and athletes has been the main focus of FCA Camps, with each Camp offering fun, outstanding sports training, inspiring speakers, strong friendships, and lasting change.
