Tim Steele, Multi-Area Director
Since its start in Greenville County in the late 1950’s under the late Coach Bill Phillips, FCA in Greenville has been impacting coaches, athletes and many others throughout our community with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since that time, Greenville County has grown immensely, as has our opportunity to reach coaches, athletes, and so many others. Greenville County currently has fifty-four (54) collegiate, high school and middle school campuses with athletics, involving an estimated 1300 coaches and over 13,000 athletes. And some estimates would indicate that there might be as many as 50,000 coaches and athletes of all ages and skill levels when we consider rec leagues, church leagues, YMCA, and club/travel teams.
From our downtown urban campuses to the rural campuses of the Blue Ridge, Fountain Inn, and Woodmont communities, to the fields and courts of our recreation departments, FCA’s mission to “lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church” has never had a greater opportunity. The time is NOW! Join our Team FCA in Greenville TODAY by PRAYING with and for our staff, coaches, and athletes, SERVING where YOU have a connections and talents, and GIVING financially to make it possible to reach farther and deeper than ever before with the wonderful truth about Jesus Christ!
Mac Campbell, Area Director
Mac began serving on staff with FCA in September of 2011 after serving for 7 years in student ministry and volunteering with FCA at West Oak High/Middle School. God has given him a deep burden for coaches and athletes in the Foothills Area and desires for every coach and athlete to use their influence to impact the world around them for Christ. Your gift to Mac and the Foothills Area FCA ministry is greatly appreciated and you can be confident that coaches and athletes lives will be impacted and influenced by your generous gift.

Will Pack, Area Director
After spending 15 years in coaching and teaching, ministering to coaches and athletes through FCA was an ideal fit for me. I want to reach the coaches and athletes on our school campuses as well as our communities in the Piedmont Area (Spartanburg, Union, and Cherokee Counties) through engaging them with the Gospel, equipping them to be a part of the ministry, and to empower them to make disciples.
I pray that through these ministry methods that God will fulfill our vision to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.
