What is FCA at Liberty North?

Fellowship Christian Athletes is a worldwide non-profit Christian sports ministry that was created in the 1950’s. According to the official website, their mission is “to lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church” while the vision is “to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.” Internationally, this is done in numerous ways, but locally, we see multiple schools branching off of FCA into school clubs. Including Liberty North.

Senior Madison Tucker, the president of the club at North, explains how FCA has changed since she first got involved.

“FCA has grown a lot since my freshman year, and I think we have a lot more underclassmen interested which is really, really exciting. It’s cool to see all of these different groups of people come. And we all share a common faith and we can just like, you know, grow in that and get to know each other,”Tucker said. 

Every Wednesday at 7:30, FCA meets in room 817, coach Davis’ room. More information can be found on their instagram page, “liberty.north.fca.” Additionally,  contact any member of the club to be put on the GroupMe for more updates. Typically, the group does an activity that’s followed by a biblically centered devotional, led by club president, Madison Tucker. FCA caters to every denomination and is open to everyone, regardless of religious affiliation or level of athleticism. FCA even offers free Lamar’s donuts every meeting.

The Liberty North FCA is striving to embody FCA’s values.

“Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word  through Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence. The Liberty North Chapter of FCA definitely strives to be a welcoming community for all individuals. We’re not as sport-heavy as the international organization is, but we definitely hope to embody the Christlike ideals that the organization is and has for itself as well,” Tucker said.
