FCA, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, is a program that has touched millions of lives through the common love of sports and God. Since 1954, FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, and high school level to use the powerful reputation of being an athletic to impact the world for Jesus Christ and cause a chain reaction. The mission of FCA is to have athletes go and spread the word about Christ.

“I feel that FCA is a great opportunity for students to be encouraged in their faith at school and for students to share their faith as well. I think it’s a great student group to have,” said Rick McKnight, who is the youth pastor at the Church of the Highlands.

FCA students and teachers value integrity, serving, teamwork, and excellence. The students meet every Friday before school, and most weeks, students lead the sessions.

“I think that I have the ability to express the Word in a public school is such blessing. Being able to reach out to my classmates and friends is truly an act of God,” Kayla Brown said passionately.

Occasionally the students can get college athletes to come in and speak.

FCA leaders want to make FCA a big thing at Central in order to reach out to more people and get them to have a passionate love for getting to school on Friday mornings to hear the Word of God!

“FCA is a place I love to spend my Friday mornings!” Charles Eaton said proudly.
