The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives…one heart at a time. Since 1954, FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful platform of sport to reach every coach and every athlete with the transforming power of Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities around the globe by engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to unite, inspire and change the world through the gospel.
We created this website with one primary purpose in mind: To help sports-minded people think and live biblically at the intersection of sport and Christianity.
This site represents our attempt to resource an underserved population—the athlete, coach, and spectator interested in allowing God to shape their thinking in every aspect of life, including their interaction with sports. We want to engage the issues surrounding sport culture by opening a door for thoughtful but accessible Christian analysis of sports. We also want to offer daily spiritual content for those concerned with the redemption of both sports and those who love them.
While millions of Christians who love sports are consuming online content, no major sports ministry produces gospel informed commentary on current sports events in the digital space. We want to change that on this site. You can help us by sharing this content with others that you think would be challenged by it.
