Although the temperature was near 100 degrees the members of the Paris High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes made sure they stayed hydrated and helped to usher in the Bret Bielema era of Arkansas Razorback football at Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville on Saturday, August 30.

With over 50 students in tow, sponsors Jason Binz and Jerry Fulmer made the trip to Fayetteville for the annual FCA day and were not only able to help the other thousands of fans usher in a new era of Hog football but saw the Razorbacks hand their opponent home with a big loss.

FCA is a campus ministry initiated and led by student-athletes and coaches on junior high, high school, and college campuses. It has four ministry types: Huddles, Team Bible Studies, Chaplain Programs, and Coaches Bible Studies. Additionally, outreach events take place on the campus such as One Way 2 Pay – Drug Free programs, school assemblies and the annual Field of Faith event.

The FCA values are to demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through integrity, serving, teamwork, and excellence. Through integrity they will demonstrate Christ-like wholeness, privately, and publicly; through serving they will model Jesus’ example of serving; through teamwork they will express unity in Christ in all their relationships; and through excellence they will honor and glorify God in all they do.
