FCA and Your Sports Team
The vision for Battlefield Area FCA is to have an FCA huddle on every campus and for every team and a Character Coach for every team, on campus and off.  Here are a few powerful resources for you to add to your sports team.  If you would like to pursue any of these options, contact us today!

Character Coaches/Team Chaplains are a vital part of the FCA ministry. A Character Coach is an adult volunteer who can serve any sports team, on or off campus.  He/she works in conjunction with the team’s head coach to meet some of the emotional, spiritual, and relational issues that coaches know need to be addressed, but they simply don’t have time because they are busy coaching the X’s and O’s of the sport.  Additionally, the Character Coach provides encouragement to the coaches and arranges voluntary-attended chapel services and/or Bible Studies.  For more information, click here 

Team Huddle – Any sports team can have an FCA huddle that seeks to provide fellowship, outreach, and growth amongst the members of the team.  A typical team huddle meets once a week before or after practice. To certify a team huddle, click here  

FCA Sports Team – While most FCA ministry takes place on existing sports teams, there is the option of having forming an FCA Team.  The Stafford Rays FCA baseball team is one local example (see below).  For more information,  click here

“For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the LORD’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” — Jeremiah 29:11

Maybe you’ve heard the statement, “Tradition never graduates.” One of the keys to leaving a legacy is to treasure the past and the memories of our “founding fathers” whose shoulders we have stood upon. We must appreciate the important role that others have played in our lives.

While drawing strength from our past, we must also stay focused on a vision for our future. If we want to stay on the cutting edge of fruitful kingdom living, we must constantly review our ministry commitments, learn from our past experiences, and seek the best advice from others—all while humbly praying for God’s Spirit to guide us. To become more effective, coaches must also skillfully balance time and  resources while carefully planning for the future.

1. What legacy are you leaving for others to treasure?
2. What changes need to be made in your life to reach your destiny in Christ Jesus?

Extra Reading: Psalm 1:1; 73:24; Proverbs 20:18

Father God, thank You for encouraging me to leave a Christ-honoring legacy through the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
