When we launch into something new, sometimes it’s most difficult to just get started. Whether it’s a new technique in your sport or a new skill you want to develop, overcoming inertia can be the hardest part. Beginning with a plan and taking small steps towards your goal every day is how you take an aspiration and make it a habit.

We Have Been Called To Make Disciples

As followers of Jesus, we have been called to be disciples who make disciples: “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations…” (Matthew 28:19a). As we follow Him, becoming more like Him every day, we also lead others towards Him. “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). But how do we start this discipleship journey? Simple, we need a great game plan.

For over 65 years, FCA has been engaging coaches and athletes with the Gospel through sport, then equipping them to go out and make disciples of those they influence. It’s right there in our Vision statement; “To see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes." We have a game plan for coaches and athletes who want to start making disciples. It’s called E3.

Begin Your Discipleship Journey Today

So, how do we begin the discipleship journey? We engage, we equip and we empower, in that order.

Whether you’ve led others before and you’re looking for some additional training, or you’re just getting started, the E3 training gives you tangible steps you can take to start making disciples.

We challenge you to start your journey of discipleship today. We’re here to help.




We Engage relationally with others in a variety of environments by building genuine trust, sharing our lives, and sharing the Gospel. We strive to connect with coaches and athletes where they are at on their spiritual journey.


After cultivating relationships and once coaches and athletes come to faith in Christ, we want to Equip them with Christ-centered training, tools, and ongoing support. We desire to Equip them with God’s Word so they can grow in Christ and help others know and grow in Him.


Once equipped, we Empower coaches and athletes to help others experience salvation in Jesus, grow in their faith, and share Him with others. We desire to Engage, Equip, and Empower coaches and athletes to make disciples who do the same to others.
