CAMPUS MINISTRY

We have created an entire online platform called Campus 101 so you can learn how to do Campus Ministry. It's designed to give every athlete, coach and volunteer a place to go and learn about what FCA campus ministry is and, more importantly, how to do it effectively.

Campus Ministry Opportunities:

  • The Campus Huddle is typically a weekly meeting where athletes from all sports come together for bible study, fellowship, encouragement, and to discover ways to honor God through sports.
  • Team Bible studies are led by student-athletes during their season with other teammates who have a desire to grow in their faith.
  • Coaches also gather for Coach Bible studies throughout the year, typically weekly or every other week.
  • Character Coaches / Team Chaplains are a growing part of Campus Ministry where volunteers come along side a team during the season and develop relationships with the players, teach character and leadership principles, and often do pre-game talks and voluntary prayer.
  • One Way 2 Play Drug-Free is a secular school assembly program that encourages students to live healthy lives and make positive life choices.
  • Fields of Faith is a peer-to-peer event in October where students invite their classmates and teammates to hear fellow students share their testimonies, be challenged to read the Word of God, and follow Jesus Christ.

What is a Huddle Coach?

A Huddle Coach is a coach, faculty member or volunteer who feels led to assist the student leaders in organizing and carrying out the FCA programs and activities on the campus. A Huddle Coach will fill many roles, but the most important quality in the Huddle Coach is their commitment to seeing lives of student-athletes change through Jesus Christ.

Who can participate?

While athletes and coaches are the target, the FCA Campus Ministry does not place those requirements on the participants. The framework and materials provided focus on the common ground of athletics, but as the athletes grow in their faith, those athletes may desire to reach out to the entire student body.
