Welcome to FCA Wrestling-Georgia, an outreach of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes!
The vision of FCA Wrestling in Georgia is “to impact the wrestling community for Jesus Christ”. FCA Wrestling started in 2008, and has grown over the years. We now offer four sessions of wrestling camp each summer (2 sessions in North GA, a new partnership camp in South GA, and our Father/Son Camp); wrestling clinics; weekly Bible devotions for teams, (known as “team huddles”); special events like our annual FCA Breakfast at the Georgia H.S. State Wrestling Championships; and mentoring opportunities for coaches.
As of the fall of 2018, we’ve now shared the Good News of God’s love with over 16,380 coaches & athletes, at wrestling camps, clinics, and special events. By God’s grace we have seen 956 souls indicate “first-time decisions for Christ”, while another 1,220 young men & coaches have “re-dedicated their lives” to the Lord. In addition, during the past five years we have averaged over 100 wrestling teams throughout Georgia and the Southeast that are facilitating weekly FCA Team Huddles. These team huddles are averaging 20 athletes and coaches in their team Bible study each week during the wrestling season. So, including all our team huddles, we have actually shared the Gospel with over 20,000 coaches and wrestlers since the inception of FCA Wrestling-Georgia in 2008. God is certainly at work in FCA Wrestling, and the ministry is growing across the nation and the world. Under the leadership of our national coordinator, Carl Perry, FCA Wrestling now has established ministries in nine states (GA, NC, PA, CA, MO, KS, WA, IL, and TN), plus the Ukraine.
Finally, FCA Wrestling-Georgia is excited to announce a whole new aspect to our ministry. As you know, Girls Wrestling is growing throughout the USA and around the world. It is an Olympic sport now. Therefore, we felt led by the Lord to launch a new ministry outreach to Girls Wrestling here in Georgia this fall of 2018. If you are interested in learning more about this new outreach effort, please visit the “Girls Ministry” tab at the top of our homepage.
We invite you to join us in impacting the world for Jesus Christ, through the influence of athletes and coaches!
