“Our heavenly Father sees what we do every single day,” Reeves said. “What a great place it would be if we all remembered there’s also somebody watching each step you make and might want to be just like you. I know the kind of influence coaches have on players and what kind of influence players have on each other.”

Reeves continued as he spoke to the young athletes and supporters in attendance, “FCA is the vehicle that can tell kids who’ve never heard about God. I encourage you to be one of the ones to give what it takes to do that.”

Boyd Green, the FCA area director, reminded guests of the vision of FCA, to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. Bradley Ward, Statesboro High School assistant football and baseball coach; Patia Rountree, Southeast Bulloch Middle School huddle coach; and Drew Robertson, SEB Middle School leadership team member, shared testimonies of the benefits and impact of FCA.

FCA serves more than 1,000 students monthly through on-campus, student-led “huddle groups” or campus Bible study. It is a faith-funded ministry, meaning it is the responsibility of each FCA staff person to raise all of the operating expenses, like Bibles, resources, staff salary and camp scholarships. Six local teams have committed to camp this summer, provided funding is available to meet the camp’s needs.
