Not long ago, God in His sovereignty saw fit to divert two athletes from their happy rut of racing and enjoying successful careers to seminary in a southern state neither will ever call “home.” However, as a result, they had the opportunity to spend months studying and experimenting on “how to reach endurance athletes for Christ.” Some of their findings were quite surprising.
Stay tuned to this blog (http://fcaeequipping.blogspot.com/) and/or the Huddle Leaders’ Yahoo Group to see what God has made available to FCA Endurance teammates!
You can also read the 50-page summary of their findings and observations here (http://donnadouglass.com/FCAE/Ethnography.pdf). I’d recommend starting with the conclusion (p.26) and the interview results (p.40).
