The Fellowship of Christian Athletes opened a Springfield office more than 30 years ago, and it’s still going strong as it tries to help teens see the value of helping others.
While reaching out to teens at southwest Missouri high schools, the southern Missouri chapter of FCA also is heavily involved in the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.
During the tournament, you’ll see FCA State Director Dan MacLachlan and State Administrator Janet Sterling leading a crew that handles environmental services.
But it’s far more than that. FCA also sends an army of volunteers to help with the Integrity Pro-Am, a fundraiser set for July 18 at LedgeStone Golf & Country Club west of Branson.
FCA also will have FCA Gameday this summer, with young golfers able to walk with Korn Ferry Tour pros during their Tuesday practice round.
FCA’s mission? To lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
“FCA has partnered with the tournament for as long as Price Cutter has been the lead sponsor,” MacLachlan said. “We are forever grateful for Price Cutter’s sponsorship of the tournament, and their invitation for our organization to join in serving such a great community event.
“From the beginning, the PCCC has been catalytic for FCA, offering us a perfect opportunity to give back to others while we fulfill our mission,” MacLachlan added. “We give back by helping supply a team of volunteers to serve the tournament. We fulfill our mission by offering an FCA Game Day, serving the Golfers with Tour Life, and partnering with a Sunrise Service Championship Sunday.”
