As we carry out ministry, we are using the methods of engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to know and grow in Christ and lead others to do the same. Our desire is to have disciples making disciples. Once a coach or athlete has been engaged through genuine relationships built by sharing our lives and the gospel, we equip coaches and athletes to know and grow in Christ. In time, these coaches and athletes begin engaging and equipping others.
To empower a coach or athlete is to place them in position where through their influence they begin engaging and equipping others as disciple makers. Coaches and athletes are given the tools necessary to lead their fellow peers into growing relationships with Jesus Christ and His Church. Disciples making disciples.
COACH & BOARD SPOTLIGHT
Meet Northeast Florida area past football coach and current Nassau County FCA Board Member, Travis Hodge. Prior to joining Nassau County FCA as a volunteer and board member, Coach Hodge was an assistant coach at Episcopal High School, Bartram Trail High School, and Madison County High School. He finished his coaching career as the head coach at Fernandina Beach High School. His passion for Christ was displayed by the way he engaged his peers and players during his time there. Coach Hodge made it a priority to take his teams to FCA Team Camps, personally attend Coaches Timeout Conferences with his assistant coaches, and provide opportunities for his entire coaching staff to be challenged in their faith weekly.
Since leaving teaching and coaching, Coach Hodge made it a priority to join Nassau County FCA as a board member and volunteer in order to provide the same opportunities he received as a coach to other coaches. Coach Hodge now works with Capital Financial Strategies as a financial advisor, coaching individuals and families in stewardship and management of their financial resources.
Coach Hodge enjoys the many opportunities he gets to speak to coaches at FCA camps and retreats on how to best navigate the ins and outs as an educator and coach. Check out Coach Hodge's video below about his experience with FCA.
