The FCA Mission is to present to athletes and coaches and all whom they influence the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has challenged coaches and athletes to impact the world for Jesus Christ.  The playing field is where many cultivate their values.  A staggering 57.3 million youth under the age of 18 play organized sports programs.  That's why, as the largest Christian sports ministry in the world, we believe FCA is needed more than ever.  We need more athletes and coaches who play with heart.  But to do that, we must first feed their soul.  FCA reaches nearly two million each year for Christ through our "4 C's" of Ministry:  Coaches, Campus, Camp and Community.  With greatly valued volunteer and financial support, we are indeed putting the heart and soul in sports.
Since 1954, we at FCA have remained passionate in our calling to see Jesus Christ transform the hearts and souls of athletes, coaches and all whom they influence.  In the last 4 years alone, our total nationwide impact has averaged close to 2 million each year thanks to our over 1200 staff in over 500 local offices, 70,000 donors and thousands of volunteer teammates. 
Our ministry influence continues to grow through our Four C's of Ministry - Coaches, Campus, Camp and Community/  The opportunity has never been greater.  FCA is needed more than ever with the challenges our youth face in life and faith.  FCA is more relevant than ever with the sports phenomenon entrenched in our culture and the playing field often being where young people develop values. As the largest Christian sports minitry in the world, we believe we are on the threshold of leaping into a new level of impact by encouraging, equipping and empowering biblical character in sports today which will influence our society and our world for decades to come.  God has uniquely blessed FCA with the vision, the skills and the will to win.  But to go all the way, we're going to need your help.  We need your prayers for God's guidance.  We need your participation in Huddles, camps, and community meetings.  We need your financial support ot expand our programs as quickly as possible.  Will you help?  We invite you to partner with FCA, to join our cause and enable our vision.  With you on the team, we can put the heart and soul in sports.  And use the influence of athletes and coahces to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
