The 2011 calendar year ended celebrating the community of men, women, FCA staff and volunteers whom are driven with the same passion of seeing Central Florida impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and coaches.
Our annual golf tournament was hosted at the Mission Inn Resort and served as a special “thank you” to our Olympian Sponsors and financial partners whom give from their hearts to see our community impacted for Christ. There is no doubt that FCA would not be able to operate and do what the Lord has commissioned us to do without these community leaders.
Jeff Duke, our Keynote Speaker opened our eyes to how truly important the work of mentoring our coaches has become. A poll of one of our local high school football teams, found that 68% of the athletes lived in a fatherless home. Therefore, by default coach represents the father figure in many of their lives. So the question arises again, “who is mentoring the coach”? FCA! Visit our new website to find out how you can join our team.
But the celebration did not stop there. Shortly thereafter, we hosted our annual Christmas where past and present board members, staff, honored coaches and students were able to fellowship and recap on the great things the Lord has and is doing in our communities. We were blessed with the coaches and athletes from Lake Mary High School and their testimony of how during one of the toughest times in a young athletes life, the Lake Mary coach was not only able but also willing to step in and mentor them through. There is nothing better than when people come together, with one purpose….to see every community, every campus and every sideline filled with those ready and willing to serve. We praise God for all He did in 2011, but know that even greater things, greater community partnerships are yet to come. Don’t miss out in 2012…..stay connected with FCA.
