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.
A new specific sport ministry vision in the near future will allow a partnership with a successful AAU program in the State that will help kids on and off the reservation receive scholarships to participate in a Summer AAU basketball program but will be coupled with a specific team devotional times during practices and travel tournaments. With money needed to be raised for this work, 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, as well as youth in the Rapid City Area.
