FCA Team Celebration Set For April 4

HUNTSVILLE- For the first time in four years the Northeast Chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) will meet in the format once utilized by the area’s Christian organization for high school and middle school student-athletes.

Presented by Friends of FCA, the 2023 Team Celebration and Fundraising Dinner will be held Tuesday, April 4, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the South Hall of Von Braun Center.

The evening of Christian fellowship, along with a delicious sit-down meal, will feature its keynote speaker Jonathan Evans the current chaplain of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and co-chaplain of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks. The 41-year old Evans played football at Baylor University graduating in 2005 and was part of the NFL as a member of the off-season or practice squads as a fullback for six teams including the Cowboys, San Diego Chargers, Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins and Houston Texans.

Evans is the son of noted Christian author, speaker and pastor Dr. Tony Evans. The younger Evans is a graduate of the Dallas Theological Seminary with a master’s degree in Christian Leadership. He is a sought-after public guest as he is known as a dynamic speaker at churches, conferences, men’s events, banquets and youth and FCA events. He is committed to developing the next generation of devoted Christian leaders and will bring his message to the hundreds expected to attend the Team Celebration in April.

The FCA event looks for VIP Teammate admissions, which are $1,000 and includes eight tickets to the Team Celebration, one photo with Evans, one signed copy of Evan’s book, “Get In The Game,” a part of the slide show recognition as a sponsor and priority seating. Individual admissions are also welcome and those admissions are asked to contact the FCA about possible reservations. The event is requesting business casual attire.

The vision of the FCA is to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. The FCA well-known values include integrity, teamwork, serving and excellence.

“This year’s event is an opportunity to meet under one roof,” said Ken Burnett of the FCA.

To register and inquire about more details, call the local FCA office at 256-509-3692 or visit its website at www.northalabamafca.org. Deadline to be a part of this special Christian event is March 28.
