AIA Triathlon Unites with FCA Endurance
In the spirit of Christian unity, Athletes in Action Triathlon (AIAT) has merged with FCA Endurance in a prayerful attempt to create a more united, efficient, and effective ministry for all involved with each ministry. Because both ministries ultimately have the same goal and heart, it only makes sense that we do more than cooperate as separate entities. By combining our resources, eliminating overlap, and tying ourselves together in heart, prayer, and name, we are helping complete each other in our quest to unite Christian endurance athletes and impact the endurance world for Jesus Christ in a significant way.
This merger is something that the national leadership of each ministry has been praying about and pursuing for some time. AIAT Director Tom Keeley shared, “The merging of Athletes In Action Triathlon and FCA Endurance will be a plus for the testimony for Jesus Christ in the multisport world. By unifying the giftedness and resources of both organizations, the opportunities will be increased for followers of Christ to bring glory to the Lord." FCA-E National Director Chris Anderson stated, “Since helping start FCA-E, it has been a goal and passion of mine that, like the Church as a whole, triathlon ministries would become more united in our effort to have a larger impact on those who don’t know Jesus. I’m excited about this merger, and pray that the coming together of these two ministries bears an abundant increase in fruit.”
For those who are currently listed on the AIAT database, we ask that you prayerfully renew your commitment to endurance ministry by joining FCA Endurance. While we desire to gather as large a database as possible, we won't assume anything, and are asking for any of you who feel led to join our current ministry team database.
Within FCA Endurance, there are two "levels" at which people can join:
Ministry Partner: This is anyone with an interest in Christian endurance ministry. By joining, you are added to our database of Christian endurance athletes and "kept in the loop" regarding FCA Endurance.
Teammate: This is a Ministry Partner who desires to boldly race for Jesus Christ with Team FCA Endurance.
