2019 Hall of Fame Area FCA Banquet

This year's keynote speaker, Todd Gongwer giving his address to all in attendance.

On May 16, over one hundred people gathered at Kent State, Stark Campus to celebrate God’s work through FCA in the past year.  At the banquet, Pastor Chuck Davis of Orrville was presented the Sue Ramsey Coach of the Year Award and Jim Kurzen of Tuslaw was presented the FCA Huddle Leader of the Year Award. Senior students Sage Peters of Tusky Valley and David Harbaugh of Lake were presented the Renee Powell Award of Excellence and the Don Cockroft Award of Excellence, respectively. Each award recipient spoke on how Jesus has used FCA to impact their lives. Congratulations to our award winners this year!

Those in attendance were fortunate to be joined by guest speaker, Todd Gongwer, author of Lead, for God’s Sake!. Todd weaved his testimony into a message of conviction in God’s calling, encouraging the audience to lead boldly in God’s image. His message aptly coincided with a celebration of Hannah Calhoun’s leadership, whose decision to step away from FCA to focus on raising her three children was announced. Thank you to all who attended, supported, and prayed for the banquet. Thank you to our major sponsors this year: Millwood Inc., Custer Products, ESPN 990, Mount Union, and the Home Appliance Company. It was a great night celebrating all the Lord has done through this amazing ministry!

To and Through the Coach

FCA is blessed to have an outstanding group of leaders serving their respective communities to bring people closer to Jesus. As Hannah Calhoun steps away, she leaves a crop of nearly fifty teachers, coaches, and community leaders- each of whom is committed to reflecting God’s love.

Thank you so much to every individual who serves God through FCA. As God’s impact continues to expand to new campuses and new teams, the importance of the diligence of already established leaders cannot be overstated. We are looking forward to another year of FCA ministry serving alongside of you!

Prayer Requests:

  • For our student leaders on each campus – pray that they would use the powerful weapon of prayer to spur on the “impossible” in their own lives and in their schools
  • For continued open doors as Tristan, Tyler, Deb, and Bob pursue their financial partnership goals
  • For God to order our steps as we pursue some amazing partnership opportunities with local organizations
  • For God to raise up additional staff for our area so that our ministry may continue to grow both deep and wide.
