Baldwin Wallace University FCA Huddle
Thank You For All You Do For FCA

With the new year well on its way we embrace everything it brings with it with a fresh excitement and renewed passion. We are excited to see the plans God has in store for Metro Cleveland FCA as we embark on 2019. Our greatest desire is to see God do a new work in the lives of those that do not yet know Him. That is what motivates everything we do. We minister to coaches and athletes every day, and nothing brings us more joy than to see them, in turn, ministering to others. 

We are so appreciative for all of our coaches, athletes, Huddle Leaders, ministry partners and volunteers that walk with us on this journey. 


Here are 10 reasons that we are thankful for each of these:
  1. Their dedication in spreading the Gospel to those that they are in contact with.
  2. The love they show everyday to those in their sphere of influence.
  3. Their commitment to God and to expanding His Kingdom.
  4. Their continued support to the FCA staff.
  5. Their continued prayer for the ministry and all that are a part of it.
  6. Their servant leaders' heart in meeting the needs of others.
  7. Their obedience to the calling that the Lord has placed upon their heart.
  8. Their boldness in spreading the Word of God to those around them.
  9. Their humility in serving.
  10. Their commitment to discipling those around them to becomes disciples to others.
All of us at Metro Cleveland FCA realize that we are not alone in this ministry, 
that we are all a part of the body to carry out God's work in reaching 
those around us with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Thank you for the important role you play on our team. 
Your partnership allows God's work to be carried out effectively.
