Upstate South Carolina FCA

from the director

From the first time I heard of FCA some twenty years ago, I now look back and recognize that God was calling me closer to Himself through this thing called sport. As I searched the scriptures to try to find a purpose and meaning in my hyper-competitive nature, one that was more than just winning on the scoreboard, the Lord revealed this verse – ironically through the apostle Paul’s letter to his young protégé, Timothy: “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” (1 Timothy 4:8, NIV). At the time I had no idea that His calling would lead me to being on staff with FCA, and the privilege of serving our dedicated staff in Upstate South Carolina as Multi-Area Director.

Upstate South Carolina is home to some of the most dynamic communities in the world. Our eleven (11) counties are home to more than 1.5 million people – and growing daily! The Lord God has positioned FCA to make an impact for His Kingdom through the estimated 3,300 coaches and 33,000 athletes on our 157 collegiate, high school, and middle school campuses. And there are countless more of all ages competing on rec league, travel league, church league, YMCA and club teams across our areas. Upstate South Carolina FCA covers the Foothills Area (Pickens, Oconee, and Anderson Counties), the Greenville Area (Greenville County), the Piedmont Area (Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties), and the Lakelands Area (Laurens, Greenwood, Abbeville, and McCormick Counties). As a part of the Carolinas region, our international partnership with South Asia – including the Middle East – connects us with millions of coaches and athletes in parts of the world where the name of Jesus is unknown – or unwelcome.

Never have we had a better opportunity to fulfill the FCA vision to “see the world impacted by Jesus Christ trough the influence of coaches and athletes”.

Join our team TODAY! The impact is eternal, and the rewards are priceless!!
