What does Campus Ministry look like?

By United States law, The Equal Access Act, students on public high schools and middle schools, and college campuses students can initiate and lead "religious clubs” or what FCA terms Huddles. What is a Huddle? A Huddle is a certified small group/Bible study for coaches and athletes and all whom they influence. Huddles can meet on the practice fields, locker rooms, classrooms, auditoriums, gyms, libraries. Some teams will meet in homes or at partner churches after a meal. For more information on huddles and how to get started see some information below or visit

How do I start a Huddle?

Any student athlete can start a huddle. Here's how in 3 steps:

  1. Complete a Ministry Leader Application. All adults, coaches, or sponsors who lead or provide support need to complete a Ministry Leader Application. If you are a prospective Student Leader, FCA encourages you to complete a StudentLeaderApplication, as it will help you gain a better understanding of FCA.
  2. Complete the Ministry Certification Request Form. Complete the request for local staff to certify your campus sport ministry
  3. Contact FCA Staff. Find the staff person nearest you and let them know you'd like to get started.
