EAST GEORGIA FCA – WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!
Even when I am old and gray, God, do not abandon me. Then I will proclaim Your power to another generation... Psalm 71:18
What little hair I have left is turning gray and my opportunities to proclaim God’s power to this next generation is upon me. Let me tell you a little about this next generation.
- 40% of High School students drink alcohol on a weekly basis
- 50% of High School students are sexually active
- Close to 5000 young men and young women took their own lives by suicide last year.
- By the time a young man or woman reaches the age of 18, 67% of them don’t attend any type of worship service, they don’t read the Bible, and therefore don’t have a Biblical worldview. Their world view is just that THE WORLD.
Now that’s a problem!!!!
BUT let me share with you what the real problem is. They don’t have a relationship with Jesus. He is the only one that bridges the gap for us between Life and Death.
So why FCA? 2 reasons… We have Access & Favor. God’s hand of favor has given us access to the most influential people in our culture today –Coaches and Athlete Leaders. We can walk onto middle school, high school, and college campuses and openly speak the TRUTH. We carry cases of Bibles into schools and distribute them. We can share the Gospel.
So you can see we need you now more than ever for financial support and prayer support! Thank you for linking arms with us as we carry on the work God has called us to do. Without you we can’t do what we do!
