God calls us individually and corporately to spread the Good News, impacting our world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. How He equips each one of us is unique. For some He has given special physical abilities through sports. The message of FCA encourages coaches and athletes to utilize their athletic talents for the glory of God rather than self-glorification. By standing upon the revered sports platform and proclaiming the Truth, in words and in action, one person truly can make an eternal difference the lives of others. The question is who will answer the call? Who will obey? Out of a heart of gratitude, I say, “Here am I. Send me!"
