Baseball Committee

We are thankful that God continues to give FCA favor and access to transform communities through baseball. We currently have FCA Baseball Academies in the cities of Barranquilla and Cartagena, Colombia as well as Barquisimeto and Valle de Pascua, Venezuela. In addition to these cities we have the opportunity to open Academies in several other cities in both countries.

Some of our players have never put on a pair of cleats before… and some of our players have trained for years and have now become professional prospects… But all of them came from economically vulnerable homes where being a part of an organized team was not an option… at least until now.  But make no mistake, this isn’t just about baseball. This is about equipping every athlete with Christ-Centered training, growing in God’s Word, and applying it to life and sport.  If you would like to be a part of our Baseball Committee to serve the needs of this sport-specific ministry, please contact me at joilar@fca.org.
