The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is officially kicking off the year with the introduction of its President Alexis Pala, Vice President Allie Jensen and group sponsor Mr. Bloomer. All leaders of the group have shown enthusiasm for the year ahead as they begin their agenda-planning process of upcoming events.
“We plan to have really chill meetings on two Thursdays every month at about 7:30 at night,” Pala said. “We will be able to plan games like soccer tournaments and ultimate Frisbee games.”
There are officers to represent each sport who can present ideas and goals for this year and spread the word of Christianity.
“We want the meetings to be more intimate and student-lead,” Pala said.
Although Pala’s passion about FCA and Christianity is evident now, she says it did not always hold her interests in this way. In fact, a friend and graduate last year introduced her to an FCA camp, and it was the start of Pala’s desire to spread the word of God.
“I went in thinking it wasn’t going to do anything,” Pala said. “It showed me His plan for me to influence others.”
Pala also says the group is not just for athletes, but for the entire student body.
“We need to heal the people’s hearts that need it,” she said, “just like God did to mine when I didn’t think anyone would or could.”
