Damar Hamlin, Other Buffalo Bills Players Participate in Student ‘Fields of Faith’ Event

Pro athletes also benefit from working with FCA, according to Hannon. “We’re giving them a platform to share their faith and to help [them] stay grounded and remember [that] what they’re doing is all because of God and for his glory and because he got them there. And then to share that message with the kids and just for the kids. It’s really getting them all in God’s Word.”

By assisting with FCA’s mission, pro athletes become rooted in a firm foundation, Hannon said, and that helps when temptations arise and when sports threatens to become “all-consuming in their lives.” Winning athletic competitions is fine, he added, as long as “athletes put Jesus first in everything.”

For 2023, FCA’s theme is “Greater,” based on John 3:30: “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
