88,000+ Campers Become ‘Strong’ in Christ at 771 Fellowship of Christian Athletes Camps This Summer

 

2 Timothy 4-7 B

Eternal Impact for Christ Made, as 88,317 Coaches and Athletes Attend Hundreds of FCA Camps in 43 States and 50 Countries

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—There is strength in numbers.

That’s certainly true of Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ (FCA, www.fca.org) popular and life-changing 2018 Camps program.

For the successful 2018 season, FCA welcomed 88,317 coaches and athletes who attended 771 Camps in 43 states across the country and 50 nations around the world.

This summer’s FCA Camps season impacted and transformed lives through outstanding competition and spiritual growth, with the 2018 Camps theme of “Strong,” based on the Bible verse 2 Timothy 4:7: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.”

“We are so thankful to God for the life-changing impact experienced at hundreds of FCA Camps this summer,” said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. “Transforming the world for Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes has been a central focus of FCA since 1954. Now, more than six decades later, we are still humbled to hear from those whose lives were changed through FCA Camps, and we pray this amazing Camps experience will continue for many years to come so even more can make a difference for Jesus through the sports they love.”

This summer, in addition to those who deepened their faith at FCA Camps, 5,097 campers also made first-time commitments to Christ, and 9,819 recommitted their lives to the Lord.

For the immensely successful and popular Camps ministry, FCA takes the best attributes of both athletic- and spiritual-focused camp events and combines them into an athletic/spiritual experience like none other. Camps also remove athletes and coaches from the routine of their sport, friends, co-workers and community, and place them into an exciting, healthy, athletic environment allowing them to pursue their passion for sport and clearly see and hear Christ’s passion for them.

Competitors who wanted to reach their potential through comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training attended a variety of camps, which include Sports Camps, Leadership Camps, Coaches Camps, Power Camps, Team Camps and Partnership Camps. Learn more through FCA’s 2018 digital Camps impact report.

FCA is also gearing up for its 15th annual student-led and student-driven Fields of Faith events on Oct. 10, where student-athletes, coaches, parents and community members will worship together, hear from inspiring speakers, pray and commit to Bible reading at upwards of 500 gatherings on athletic fields in the U.S. and globally.

Last fall, thousands of lives were changed eternally on 521 fields across the country, as the 2017 event set a new record with 198,000 in attendance. Even more important, 6,213 made first-time faith commitments, 5,015 recommitted their lives to Christ, and 6,494 committed to reading their Bible.
