3 E's, Spiritual Mentorship
The vision of FCA is to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. To effectively accomplish this vision, we employ the three E’s strategy of Engage, Equip, and Empower.
The College Volunteer team is one of unique opportunity and vital importance. These college-aged volunteers have more time to meet with students, a lead lunchtime Huddles, and are closer in age to the students they engage with.
College volunteers help lead huddles and connect with coaches and teams, but their most important role is mentoring the student leaders in the huddles. There is a strong need for equipping the athletes and students in their faith and empowering them in their role in leading as a student. This is where the college volunteers can specifically serve and impact. There is a program and structure for Spiritual Mentorship provided for College Volunteers, in 1-on-1 same-gender mentorship, which includes talking through the student’s life and growing their faith.
The college volunteer team is a valuable cog in the working whole of FCA. It creates a more approachable and impactful experience for the students. Through the college volunteer team, we can see more youth be impacted by the gospel and grow in their faith and character during a very important part of the student’s maturity. Our ultimate goal is to see Student Leaders follow in the footsteps of their College Volunteers through coming back, leading, mentoring, and sharing Christ with others. Through this, we would see a repeatable, sustainable, multiplicative, and natural form of equipping and empowering of growing leaders for the future, as seen in the flowchart below.
