FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN ATHLETES
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is an international non-profit Christian sports ministry that welcomed a chapter at SPCS in 2015. FCA's mission is to present to athletes and coaches, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. All Upper Division students are encouraged to attend weekly FCA huddles in the gym.
The SPCS Campus Ministry that is initiated and led by student-athletes focuses on equipping, enabling, empowering and encouraging student-athletes, coaches and adult leaders to impact and influence their campus for Christ. Any questions regarding FCA may be directed to Amy Mullins.
The Peace Keeper program is an after-school program that runs every week from November - May whereby older students are paired with younger students. They spend 30 minutes together - talking, playing, and/or doing crafts. The purpose is to create a strong, Christ-centered peer community at SPCS. Our Peace Keeper program has been recognized on "Whats Right with Tampa Bay" by Kelly Ring and was awarded as an exemplary program by ACSI. The fruits of mentoring are abundant; the younger children feel valued by their older student mentor, and the mentor benefits knowing the positive influence they provide a younger student.
Any questions regarding our Peacekeeper Mentors may be directed to Jen Jones.
