FCA Campus Ministry

The FCA Campus Ministry can take on one of the following forms:

Huddles - A regularly scheduled gathering for the purpose of evangelism, discipleship, outreach and fellowship using the platform of athletics.



Team Bible Studies
- A targeted study within a unique team setting/environment that encourages and challenges team members to live and compete according to biblical principles.



Coaches Bible Studies
- A targeted study within a unique coach’s setting/environment that encourages and challenges coaches to live and compete according to biblical principles.



Character Coaches
- A relationship driven ministry that reaches a specific team (athletes and coaches) through chapel meetings and spiritual/character development.

 

We have created an entire online platform called Campus 101 so you can learn how to do Campus Ministry. It's designed to give every athlete, coach and volunteer a place to go and learn about what FCA campus ministry is and more importantly, how to do it effectively.  Learn more at FCA Campus 101.
