Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) “God’s Game Plan” Bible, is our spiritually free gift of life to win another life, a son or a daughter off our streets for the Gospel of Jesus Christ…

Ministry: To thy neighbor Asian Pacific Islanders athletes. The Samoan Athletes: Heart of Champion (SAHC) is a sports ministry established in 2002, in 2004 targeting students, athletes and coaches at junior high through professional levels.

Mission: To present to all Athletes, Coaches, Family, Community, Churches and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, experience Him in relationship and fellowship of the Church, body of Christ!

 

Vision: We are the Light of the world… let your light shine before men… shine out to all Athletes Nation; Community Leaders, Churches Youth to equip with the Word of God as "God's Promise Scriptures" (GPS).
