Who We Are: The North Greenville University Chapter 

North Greenville Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is a student-led ministry on the campus of North Greenville University in Tigerville, South Carolina. We are an affiliate of the nationally-recognized Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which was originally founded in 1954. The NGU chapter of the FCA launched during the 2015-2016 academic school year. 

Five student interns serve on an officer team that leads our ministry. Underneath each of them the leadership team furthers to include “FCA Captains,” which are voluntary leaders that represent almost every sport on campus. On Friday mornings we have either Team FCA, which involves every sports team and usually a dynamic speaker, or we have Breakout FCA, which includes a much smaller portion of athletes who are looking to become more intimately connected through a small group time. Activities outside of the Friday morning time slot, such as Homecoming, the ESPYs, etc. are also offered to all students as a way of getting plugged into the FCA community.

Our Purpose: 

You’re most likely an athlete. Probably at North Greenville – or thinking of signing here. If you fall under either of those categories, we exist for you. We want introduce you to Christ for the first time or help you in your relationship with Him. We want you to be connected with others who have a similar mindset as you—both spiritually and athletically. Whether you would call yourself a Christian or not, we are offering you the opportunity to be a part of something bigger. We believe God never desired for you to go through life alone (even during collegiate athletics) and we want to exemplify that belief. Another way we want to serve you and the rest of NGU athletes is by supporting you athletically. We believe God wants to intervene in all aspects of your life—which for you probably includes sports. In the end, we want to provide you with community of encouragement, which also likes to have a lot of fun along the way.

Our Vision:

  • Friday mornings would be an environment athletes need. That they would so desire the loving community we offer that they in turn bring others as well.
  • We are not filled with people who have it “altogether,” we are ready, willing, and hopeful that athletes come who are broken, misunderstood, frustrated, confused, or empty.
  • Our ministry would unite our campus as we all seek for Christ’s difference to be made.
