Huddle Overview

Since 1966, the FCA Ministry has been present on campuses all across the country. The Campus Ministry is initiated and led by student-athletes and coaches on junior high, high school and college campuses. FCA has a long history of working with school administrators to create a trusted, effective campus club that supports and adds value to the students and faculty.

Key Items

Multi-Sport Huddle: A small group bible study for athletes from multiple sports teams.

Team Huddle: A targeted bible study within an individual team setting 

Coaches Huddle: A small group Bible study for coaches that coach teams at all levels on campus and in community club/ travel sports

Methods: Engage, Equip, & Empower

We as FCA Staff help identify leaders by engaging with individuals on campus and within a community. We walk alongside the leaders and equip them to discover and use their God given gifts. Finally, we empower them as leaders and using the platform of sports to make a difference within their schools and community. (Matthew 28:18-20)

Ready to learn more about impacting your campus for Christ? As you all meet in your huddles, there is a lot of freedom in how you use your time! However there are a few things that are crucial to the success of your huddle:

1) To start a huddle on your campus, you should have:

  • SALT Coach/Huddle Leader*
  • Church Representative
  • Classroom (huddles typically meet either before school in the morning or during the lunch period)
  • 2-3 SALT Leaders (complete a Student Leader Application-SLA)

*Every Huddle must have an adult leader complete a Ministry Leader Application (MLA). This is a one-
time form to have on file with FCA.

2) When you've assembled your team, contact your local FCA staff!
We want to encourage, equip, support and certify your huddle as officially part of FCA's ministry.  See
our huddle page to find your local contact.

3) Every time you meet, we expect your huddle to:

  • Get in the Bible Together
    At every huddle, we should be in the Word, examining a verse, a story or a passage
  • Pray Together
    Huddles get the opportunity to stand and support each other as we go through life


Keep your Huddle on track with our Next Steps and keep moving around the bases!
