Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)
Athletics lends itself naturally to teamwork and cooperation, but many Concordia University athletes find that they have a common bond even more important than the teams they join and the sports they play. Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an interdenominational Christian organization based on sports that bring together not only athletically oriented fellow believers on Concordia’s campus, but unites athletes who share the faith all over the world.
Concordia’s FCA Huddle works to foster community among Christian athletes both on and off the Concordia campus, keeping in mind that their abilities are from God and their victories are his. In addition to holding regular campus meetings that feature devotions and fellowship, FCA at Concordia works with other high school and college chapters of FCA. Members serve as counselors at FCA weekend retreats and summer camps that encourage young athletes to stay focused on Christ as they develop their skills.
FCA meetings are held every Sunday at 8 p.m., and anyone interested in athletics is welcome to attend. FCA brings in special speakers to discuss issues relevant to athletics and faith every semester. A leadership team, rather than an individual leader, directs FCA’s activities and emphasizes the importance of cooperation in both athletics and Christian servanthood.
