The Coaches Ministry vision is to redeem sports through transformed coaches. FCA ministers to coaches through Bible studies, prayer support, discipleship and mentoring, resources, outreach events and retreats. Orange County FCA is currently revitalizing our coaches ministry by inviting coaches to join Bible studies designed specifically to address their unique position within the community.
The Campus Ministry is initiated and led by student-athletes and coaches on junior high, high school and college campuses. It has four ministry types: Huddles, Team Bible Studies, Chaplain Programs and Coaches Bible Studies. Additionally, outreach events take place on the campus such as One Way 2 Play — Drug Free programs, school assemblies and the annual Fields of Faith event. In the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, we have eight huddles occurring weekly across jr. high and high school campuses. FCA huddles take place on campus at Newport Harbor High School, Ensign Intermediate School, Corona del Mar High School, Corona del Mar Jr. High, Estancia High School, TeWinkle Intermediate School, Costa Mesa High School, and Costa Mesa Middle School.
Camps are a time of “inspirations and perspiration” for coaches and athletes to reach their potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training. These types of camps are Sports Camp, Leadership Camp, Coaches Camp, Power Camp, Partnership Camp, Team Camp and International Camp. Each year, Orange County FCA sends hundreds of students to our sports camp hosted on UCLA’s campus.
The “win” of Community Ministry is to see the community reached for Jesus Christ through adult involvement. FCA partners with local churches, businesses, parents and volunteers to invest in coaches and athletes participating in club, recreational and youth sports teams. FCA Teams have also been created to impact the sports community. Other areas of Community Ministry include adult ministries, professional athlete ministries, resources and clinics. In the NMUSD, FCA is incredibly blessed by the support and friendship of many church communities and youth pastors. FCA is working with these church families to reach Orange County for Jesus!
