FCALogo4ColorEPSShenandoah has a new club on campus this semester, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Josh McCauley, who is involved with track and field, first went to Rev. Justin Allen, the dean of Spiritual Life, to talk to him about the idea of having this club on campus. With Allen’s help, FCA soon became a reality at S.U.

The main purpose of  FCA is to “bring fellowship onto the field and bring God back into sports” explains freshman officer Kayla Buechner, who is also a member of the  women’s lacrosse team.

According to the FCA website, “Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ.”

Along with Buechner and McCauley, Sarah Brock, field hockey; Ryan Mossman, baseball; Mary Claire Miller, track and field; and Liz Grover, field hockey are all serving as officers for FCA at S.U.

If you play a sport, love watching sports or are generally passionate about athletics, FCA invites you to come to their meetings, which are held every other Wednesday at 8:30 p.m., in the big classroom in Aikens Athletic Center. You can also find out more about them on the Shenandoah University FCA Facebook page.
