How it works
Many times we are asked how the FCA ministry operates financially. We are always excited to share our story and how God has used our ministry and our personal stories to impact the lacrosse community. Unlike other club teams, sports organizations, or for-profit lacrosse programs, FCA operates completely on financial support raised by the staff and leadership board.
This is our full time job
All staff are responsible for raising our personal income by inviting friends, family, and members of our community to partner with us and financially support our role in this ministry.
Each person on FCA staff has made a leap of faith in their spiritual lives and has followed God’s calling to be in ministry and invest in impacting the lacrosse community for Jesus Christ. We work year round developing relationships and impacting the lacrosse community both nationally and internationally. While the summer is non-stop tournaments, camps, clinics, and trips, we spend our “down time” planning events, organizing logistics, raising financial support for the ministry, attending lacrosse conventions, investing in athletes, and much more.
What about player fees and registration costs?
We work hard to keep player fees and registration costs as low as possible. All of our coaches and huddle leaders volunteer their time for the reward of having an impact on the lives of lacrosse players around the country. All player fees include tournament registration costs, FCA gear, FCA Bible, group ministry events, and help defray the cost of travel for our volunteer coaches and huddle leaders.
Join a Home Team
If you appreciated your experience with FCA and/or want to join the ministry in support of the mission to impact the Lacrosse community for Jesus Christ, please consider supporting the staff financially. We encourage you to experience the deepness of God’s love by returning the blessings He has given to you. We ask that you take the time to pray and see if God is leading you to give to this specific ministry.
God is teaching us how pleased He is when we honor Him and make sacrifices that require us to depend on His provision. Throughout the Bible, God calls us to give our first fruits, our tithe, or treasure, etc in His name so that we can further depend on Him. When we do this, it is amazing to see how God in turn provides for us. We hope that you will take the time to learn about this ministry, our vision, and what God is doing in the lives of lacrosse players involved with our ministry
Each FCA employee has a “Home Team” that consists of people who contribute monthly to meeting the employee’s support needs. Please consider joining a “Home Team” and the ministry of FCA. It is a wonderful opportunity to stay involved with the ministry, to support our roles in the lacrosse community, and to allow athletes the chance to grow in their sport and their faith at the same time.
You can easily sign up for monthly support online or send your monthly or annual check by mail to the FCA office in Raleigh, NC. Thank you for taking interest in where God has called us and for taking the time to consider supporting God’s ministry to the lacrosse community. We pray that you have been impacted by your experience with FCA this year.
