New Huddle Ideas

As FCA staff we are always looking for new ways to serve and minister to coaches and athletes. We try to think outside the box and are currently looking for ideas directed towards ministering to those participating in what some might call “non traditional” school sports and activities. Things like rodeo, equestrian, skiing, skateboarding, outdoors (hunting fishing, shooting) and many more. If you have an idea for how we can serve in these or any others arenas you think of, please contact your local FCA rep. In Redmond contact Mike Elam at, in Bend contact Wendi Rawlins at and anywhere else in Central and Eastern Oregon contact Area Director Randy Hutchins at

Favorite Bible story: I love the story in Luke 23:39-43
when a criminal hanging next to Jesus said to Him,
“Remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” All it
took for Jesus to say, “Today you shall be with me in
paradise,” was a heart change toward the Lord understanding
that he was in need of a Savior, and the One
hanging next to Him was God!

Favorite thing about FCA: Participating in sports allows one
to learn commitment, how to handle winning and losing, and
learning to be part of a team. These all can be challenging,
but when applying faith through them all, there can be many
life lessons learned; the most important being a close
relationship with Jesus!

I follow Jesus because: He is my HOPE! I couldn’t live without Him.
