Get In Touch

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives…one heart at a time. Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

FCA Vision
To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

FCA Mission
To present to coaches and athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.

The FCA Values
Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.

We will demonstrate Christ-like wholeness, privately, and publicly. (Proverbs 11:3)

We will model Jesus’ example of serving. (John 13:1-17)

We will express our unity in Christ in all our relationships. (Philippians 2:1-4)

We will honor and glorify God in all we do. (Colossians 3:23-24)

The Four C’s of Ministry

Coaches Ministry
The Coaches Ministry vision is to redeem sports through transformed coaches. FCA ministers to coaches through Bible studies, prayer support, discipleship and mentoring, resources, outreach events and retreats.

Campus Ministry
The Campus Ministry is initiated and led by student-athletes and coaches on junior high, high school and college campuses. It has four ministry types:  Huddles, Team Bible Studies, Chaplain Programs and Coaches Bible Studies. Additionally, outreach events take place on the campus such as One Way 2 Play — Drug Free programs, school assemblies and the annual Fields of Faith event.

Camp Ministry
Camps are a time of “inspirations and perspiration” for coaches and athletes to reach their potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training. These types of camps are Sports Camp, Leadership Camp, Coaches Camp, Power Camp, Partnership Camp, Team Camp and International Camp.

Community Ministry
The “win” of Community Ministry is to see the community reached for Jesus Christ through adult involvement. FCA partners with local churches, businesses, parents and volunteers to invest in coaches and athletes participating in club, recreational and youth sports teams. FCA Teams have also been created to impact the sports community. Other areas of Community Ministry include adult ministries, professional athlete ministries, resources and clinics.

West River Area Director


As the area director of West River South Dakota FCA I am honored to bring God’s word to the coaches and athletes of western South Dakota. My responsibility is to develop the best ministry to equip leaders, coaches and athletes to spread God’s Kingdom.

My vision for West River FCA is to build a strong ministry that will strengthen in numbers…grow the Kingdom, all with the FCA platform. I have been blessed with the responsibility to deliver the message and strategy God has provided to thoroughly equip the "frontline", generating opportunities for leadership within West River SD. With the loving support of my family, we recognize the enormous influence that coaches have on athletes. I encourage you to financially partner with me to build a strong ministry that WILL impact athletes and coaches in our area.

I grew up in Worland, WY and attended The University of South Dakota! Go Yotes!  I swam competitively at USD and continued a few years after.  I have coached at the collegiate level for over 20 years before entering into ministry. God has certainly paved my path to serve the Lord through FCA. 

Native American Minitries

As the Field Representative for Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) South Dakota, I’ve been blessed with the challenge of bringing FCA’s mission and values of integrity, service, teamwork and excellence onto the 9 Indian reservations within South Dakota. With most of the work happening on my home Reservation in Pine Ridge, SD FCA has allowed me to weekly with kids both in high school and at the Middle School levels through individual basketball workouts, summer baseball camps, youth huddle groups and so much more. My mission is made possible by your financial support and faithful prayer.

Camps offer comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training, it’s a time to experience inspiration and perspiration. During youth huddles, devotions are shared, fellowship has taken place, and life’s challenges in sports have been addressed. Camps and huddles allow youth a time to escape from the daily oppression observed on reservations and an opportunity to receive a message of hope, inspiration as well as receive specific prayer.

Through community involvement Lakota All Stars basketball team and Lakota Strykers baseball team have been developed. God created community and family because he desires us to work together. Will you work together with our youth and be part of our victory? Thank you for your time and consideration to bring hope to the youth across the Pine Ridge Indian reservation and reservations across the state.
