The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) offers teens the ability to have a relationship with Christianity through the sports they play, according to club leader and senior Mackenzie Evenson.

“We had a good amount of seniors last year so we’re encouraging more people to come so we can build a stronger community,” Evenson said.

With the absence of the club’s previous adviser, math teacher Elizabeth Yetzer, the FCA needs a new permanent teacher. Evenson said there are three possible candidates for the position.

“Tim Thorman has been actively participating as our temporary advisor. (Joy) Esbolt seemed interested when we had a chance to speak to her and Jessica Schmidt talked to the head track coach,” Evenson said.

Junior Alissa Cullen Jones said she believes the club creates a special bond between athletes and their faith.

“As a Christian, I believe that having a good relationship with God and Jesus can have a positive impact on their performance as an athlete, “ she said.

The FCA is open to all Christian high school athletes. To join the club, contact Jessica Schmidt or Mackenzie Evenson.
