The Fellowship of Christian Athletes passed out more than 190,000 copies of the Bible during 2019, according to a recent announcement by the faith-based youth organization.
In an email to supporters, the FCA explained that they distributed 190,832 Bibles this year and about 2.5 million Bibles worldwide over the past 15 years.
FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson said that they have “not compromised our focus and commitment to God’s Word and biblical truth.”
“Today, FCA is one of the largest distributors of Bibles in the world,” stated Williamson. “The Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 doesn’t only rally us, but it tells us to teach all who hear the message to obey.”
“How do we do this? We use God’s playbook, the Holy Bible, to share the life-changing message of salvation.”
In November, the FCA celebrated its 65th anniversary, with Williamson writing in a column for The Christian Post that he was “grateful for the men and women who pioneered this ministry.”
“We’re bearing the fruit of a rich history of faithful servants who believed God wanted to use the vehicle of sports to introduce competitors to Christ,” wrote Williamson.
