Ohio District 8 FCA

Fellowship of Christian Athletes exists to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. Through Coaches’ Bible Studies, high school and university huddles, community events, and leadership camps and training, District 8 FCA seeks to challenge, encourage, equip, and empower coaches and athletes to use their platform of athletics to impact their communities and the world for Jesus Christ. They do this with the values of integrity, serving, teamwork, and excellence.

District 8 FCA is led by a Board of Directors and Area Representative, Andy Lynch. Together with the board, Andy and his wife, Leah, serve to minister to the students and coaches of our area high schools and universities in nine counties, including Allen, Auglaize, Hancock, Hardin, Logan, Mercer, Putnam, Shelby and Van Wert.
