At the heart of FCA are coaches.  Our role is to minister to them by encouraging and equipping them to know and serve Christ.  FCA ministers to coaches through Bible Studies, staff contacts, prayer support, discipleship and mentoring, Behind the Bench (a program for coaches’ wives), resources, outreach events, national and local conventions, conferences and retreats.

 

Coaches from all over Ohio gathered to work with our football players at the Findlay FCA Sports Camp.

Coaches, Looking For Help?

If you are a coach and you need some help - allow us to walk by your side and assist.  How? 

Team Time
- Once a week, we will come in or train one of your staff to spend 5-10 minutes at practice to work on team building and discussing Team characteristics.  This is not a Bible study, strictly character focus.
Resources - From John Wooden's books to Coaches Devotionals, we have material to challenge and encourage you as a coach.
Encouragement - We always want to help out coaches and their spouses during busy seasons. 

Send an email - contact us if you need help!


 

Pray as though nothing of eternal value is going to happen
in my athletes' lives unless God does it.

Prepare each practice and game as giving
my utmost for His highest.

Seek not to be served by my athletes for personal gain,
but seek to serve them as Christ served the church.

Be satisfied not with producing a good record,
but with producing good athletes.

Attend carefully to my private and public walk with God,
knowing that the athlete will never rise to a standard
higher than that being lived by the coach.

Exalt Christ in my coaching,
trusting the Lord will then draw athletes to Himself.

Desire to have a growing hunger for God's Word,
for personal obedience,
for fruit of the spirit and for saltiness in competition.

Depend solely upon God for transformation -
one athlete at a time.

Preach Christ's word in a Christ-like demeanor,
on and off the field of competition.

Recognize that it is impossible to bring glory to both myself and Christ, at the same time.

Allow my coaching to exude the fruit of the Spirit,
thus producing Christ-like athletes.

Trust God to produce in my athletes His chosen purposes,
regardless of whether the wins are readily visible.

Coach with humble gratitude,
as one privileged to be God's coach.
