Illowa FCA’s vision is to see our area impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.God has blessed Illowa FCA with incredible growth and revival throughout our 20 counties.Illowa FCA has an extreme need to expand the staff to cover the 100-plus huddles, hundreds of coaches, and thousands of student-athletes we directly impact for Christ.
The ten-year target for Illowa FCA is to have at least one Coach for Christ trained, encouraged, and equipped by FCA staff, in every school community (HS, MS, College) and elite amateur and professional sports clubs. “Every coach. Every Team.”
The three-year picture is to grow the budget from $400,000 to $825,000 with the addition of staff, resources, and other ministry needs. We plan to expand our administrative team from two full-time and one part-time to six full-time. We will also increase our Board Members from 14 to 45 along with our Tom Landry Donors ($10,000+ annually) from five to 30. In three years the goal is to have 150 Coaches for Christ throughout our 20-county area.
Implementing a yearly Legacy Dinner and Partner Drive event is crucial to underwriting this growth through sponsorships, and increasing our AMP (Automatic Monthly Partner) donors.
