WHY FCA WRESTLING?

“Serving on the FCA Wrestling Leadership Board has been a huge blessing for me and has truly helped me in my walk with Christ. Being surrounded by great leaders has been instrumental in my own personal journey and has really helped me as I try to be an influential leader to those wrestlers and coaches I encounter on a daily basis. The knowledge and Godly wisdom that I get to be a part of through our FCA Wrestling board meetings and the interactions with the board and staff has helped me be a better person. I am amazed at the growth of FCA Wrestling over the last ten years and know that this is just the beginning of what God has planned for this ministry.”
