One Mission


"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"
-John 14:6


It's FCA Camp time again! Everything is set. The Huddle training done, the coaches are in place, the band is ready to rock the campers, and all is ready to begin. As a Huddle coordinator for our camp this week, I have the privilege of working beside someone who has embodied the mission of FCA for more than 20 years. She has served at more than 50 camps in various roles, and through it all her mission has remained the same.

Every day, Carol "Coke" Long works hard to uphold the mission of showing each and every camper and athlete the right path to follow. She shares with the Huddle Leaders during training that her love for God grows deeper everyday and that sharing Him with others is her primary mission in life.

People all over the world have mission statements for work, home and personal use, but the FCA mission has stayed the same for 50 years and counting. With this year's theme verse, which was the same as the first camp nearly 50 years ago, the mission remains the same, showing campers, coaches and communities that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Every day this week I will highlight our theme of One mission. Tomorrow's devo will be One Way. Looking forward to a great week here at camp. Please pray for camps all over the country today.


1. What is your mission today?
2. Has your mission changed because of life circumstances?
3. Today, how can you start to live out the mission of honoring Christ?
