What is Coaches Ministry?

FCA Coaches Ministry is the ministry program to coaches through huddles, events, training and resources.

The coach is one of the most influential individuals in our society. It has been said that a coach will influence more people in one year than most people will in a lifetime. FCA seeks to equip and encourage coaches to grow in their faith and become transformational in how they coach their athletes and influence other coaches.

As you consider your coaching career, take a moment and make sure you have a complete game plan for success this season. Wins and losses only last from game to game, but building a program of character and integrity in your players and coaches lasts a lifetime.

FCA Coaches Academy 

The FCA Coaches Academy is designed to help coaches explore the biblical truth behind the research-backed concepts of 3Dimensional Coaching. 3Dimensional Coaching is based on extensive research regarding different coaching philosophies and the cultural influence of coaches in the lives of the people they impact.  By completing this academy, coaches will become more transformational in the lives of their players by learning to coach in all three dimensions from a faith-based perspective.

FCA Coaches Huddles

Coaches huddle groups are a great way to engage with other coaches who are also looking to implement the 3D Coaching model into their programs.  These groups provide fellowship, accountability, and ideas from others as you go through the FCA Coaches Academy.  Other groups meet regularly for fellowship and bible study.  Our current groups include:
