Lakeland Leadership Camp 2017

July 10-14 was an amazing week as 325 campers, 43 Huddle Leaders and 25 FCA Staff Members converged on the campus of Southeastern University.

Campers were challenged in God's Word to live and lead for Christ on their campuses and in their communities. 

The Message was clear!!

There is power in One Gospel. There is power in One Truth. There is power in our One Great God who transforms hearts and brings victory in our lives.  As Christian athletes, when we stand together with one passion, one power, and one purpose there is great impact.

Blessing Coaches and their Families

The annual "Coaches Time Out" event was held at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens. 

Over 300 coaches and their spouses from all over Central and South Florida were encouraged in the areas of FAITH, FAMILY, & FINANCES. Guest Speakers included former NFL players Brian Kinchen and Rob Taylor. Dr. Jeff Duke, the author of "3D Coaching" was also on hand to share insights into the special role that a coach plays in the life of an athlete.

West Central Florida had 13 coaches attend this year. We praise God for them and are excited about the opportunity to minister to them and their families.


Campus Coach Luncheon

Committed to Equipping our Volunteers

Greater Lakeland Area Director, Terry Green held a "Grab Your Cleats"  Volunteer Orientation luncheon as the school year began.This was an opportunity for those who have made the commitment to serve as Campus Coaches to come together around the shared passion of seeing our city transformed by the Gospel one athlete, coach and student at a time. If you have a desire to combine your love for God with your love for sport, we would love to talk with you about how to "Grab Your Cleats" and be involved with FCA. 

We want to thank Kate Lake, owner of "My Office and More" for her hospitality in providing the amazing meeting space for this event.

Join the Team!

We have seen God moving over the past year to provide more volunteers from the community than we have ever had before. These volunteers will be placed in positions that allow for greatest impact for the Gospel on campus and in the community. If you have a desire to combine your love for God with your love for sport, we would love to talk with you about how to "Grab Your Cleats" and be involved with FCA.

Coaching for Christ

Coach Aaron Myers teaches at Hardee Junior High where he is the  Assistant Football Coach. He also serves as the Head JV and Assistant Varsity Basketball coach at Hardee High School. 

"Coaching is truly a ministry and while it requires us to make sacrifices as a family, we see it as an opportunity to build up our players and show them the love of Jesus." - Myers

FCA is committed to ministering to coaches and their families. We praise God for Coach Myers and his wife, Micah and look forward to the fruit that their ministry with FCA will have on the campuses where the serve.
