Character Coaches

What are the roles of the FCA “Character Coaches”?

Character Coaches could take on a number of different roles, but all of them stem from the role of a servant-leader. Here are some other common roles:

  • Lead and coordinate pre-game devotions.
  • Provide personal care to players, coaches and support staff.
  • Alert the coach to critical issues that could affect his or her program.
  • Be available and equipped at all times to help in crisis situations.
  • Provide wisdom and resources for character development.
  • Pray for, encourage and exhort players, coaches, coaches’ families and support staff.

Church Partnerships

Getting our coaches and students involved in a local church is very important to FCA. Many of our FCA staff members across the nation serve as Pastors, Elders, or Deacons for churches in addition to their roles within FCA.

We need you to connect us with your church. We also want to help promote church events. Let us know about special youth events so we can promote them among our weekly Huddles.
Here are some specific ways we need churches to be involved:

  • Squad Days
  • Counselors at our evangelistic events
  • Volunteers for our ministry programs
  • Monthly Financial Partnerships
