For more than 60 years, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has been on a mission “to lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.” Based in Kansas City, FCA has chapters in 107 countries and leads 20,948 certified huddles worldwide. It’s influence in the tri-county area has grown in recent years. “We are truly excited about what God is doing in South Florida through FCA!” said FCA President Shane Williamson. “Our ministry has really grown through the leadership we now have in place, and thanks to the generosity of our supporters we have even bigger plans for reaching every coach and athlete in this part of the country. The tri-county team – Jerry Beverly, Desmond Cook and Greg Anderson – have all made a significant impact in their respective areas, and now more than ever they are collaborating to maximize the ministry opportunities we have in that region! So we are pumped for the future!”

FCA has primarily ministered to high school and middle school athletes and coaches through campus huddles, and now has extended the reach to club and travel teams, as well as professional athletic organizations. This tri-county region is home to some of the largest school districts in the country (Dade is #3, Broward #6 and Palm Beach County #10) and with these new initiatives South Florida FCA faces the daunting task of establishing FCA programs in every school and league.
