Fellowship of Christian Athletes

Advisor: Tig Intagliata
President:   Justin Kauffman

Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) are students who seek to discover what it means to integrate Christian faith into life on and off of the athletic field. Bluffton's FCA group is made up of both athletes and those who aren't currently on a team but who enjoy sports.  FCA meets weekly for Bible Study and sponsors activities at sporting events, organizes events such as an annual corn-hole tournament, and provides opportunities for service to the campus and community.

If I were ever prosecuted for my faith, I hope there would be enough evidence to convict me.

Ministry assistants work at building community and serving as a spiritual resource to their fellow students. They are available as a listening ear for peer counseling and support. They also provide opportunities for spiritual growth, such as Bible studies, mentoring, prayer practices and other ways to connect with God both individually and in small group settings.  Ministry assistants are a good resource in helping students get oriented to various spiritual life activities on campus, as well as service projects off campus.
