Rice FCA

To see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

We walk out this vision and mission, specifically, on the campus of Rice University and in the over-arching Rice community. That includes ministering to the Rice athletes, students, coaches, administration, and alumni, through the FCA staff, adult volunteers, and support teams. The main objective is for every person in the ministry to know Jesus through relational evangelism and be in a growing relationship with Him through discipleship. We want to make disciples that make disciples. This can be through an FCA Staff person, an adult volunteer, a coach, or one of our student leaders.

We currently have three full-time staff members on campus and are needing to add more to have the capacity to give every coach, athlete, and volunteer the proper discipleship and equipping so that Jesus may be known throughout campus. Rice University is a unique place where God is bringing people from every corner of the earth to one place, to go through some of the most intrinsic years of their life, only to be sent out to lead in every corner of the earth! God has been so faithful in using Rice FCA as a means to transform lives for the past 13 years and more.

Ways to Serve:
- Prayer team: be on a monthly email with prayer request for the ministry"
- Adult volunteers: If you have a heart for student athletes or FCA we need more bodies that can assist with discipleship- the harvest is plenty and the workers are few!
- Monthly financial support: Helps have staff be present on campus full time- and allows us to add more staff!
