The need is greater than it’s ever been. FCA is the only open door left in our schools across our nation. As our culture shifts away from God, we have a significant opportunity to reach our youth before it’s too late. Statistics tell us that 85% of all who accept Christ do so before age 18, so we are in a race against time to reach as many as we can.
FCA is a ministry to and through the local coach and athlete, in partnership with the local church. It is our goal to reach every coach and athlete involved in campus and community sports teams with the purpose of seeing God transform lives for His glory.
Your prayer and financial support not only enables us to reach more coaches and athletes for Christ, but it establishes a team relationship between you, me and God. We are blessed to become teammates in Jesus Christ with the opportunity to encourage each other and help others fight the good fight of faith and finish the race!
Serving the following counties:
Transylvania, Jackson, Macon, Cherokee, Graham, Clay, and Swain.

Want to join us in our mission of reaching people with the life-giving message of Jesus? Your generosity enables us to help more and more people experience a life-changing relationship with Him. We are truly grateful for your donation and hope the convenience and simplicity of online giving will be helpful to you.
Financial giving can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering.
