Missionary of the Week – May 16, 2021
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (Alabama)
– Please pray for FCA Camps this summer. They need to raise an extra $26,000 to send 8 Area teams to FCA Team Basketball Camp, 24 students to Leadership Camp, 20 Coaches to Family Camps. The camps are:
• FCA Coaches Family Camp at Blue Lake, May 27-30
• FCA Team Basketball Camp, June 7-9
• FCA Leadership Camp, June 25-28
• Winning at Home Coaches Marriage Retreat, June 21-23
– FCA is also in great need of donated office space. Please pray that office space will become available for them to use so that they can continue to make disciples through their methods of engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to know and grow in Christ and lead others to do the same.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has challenged coaches and athletes to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Today, a staggering 57.3 million youth under the age of 18 play organized sports programs, which is why FCA is needed more than ever. The playing field is where many cultivate their values. The FCA mission is to present to coaches and athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the Church. Trinity Church has been instrumental in starting and sustaining FCA in Montgomery and across Alabama for many years. John Gibbons is the Alabama State Director for FCA.
