Bill Koehn Mission Offering
Not only do we look forward to the Bill Kohen Mission Offering but also look forward to our summertime outreach events that are associated with this offering, and how God works through His workers who are reaching out into our community-being His hands and feet. We pray for the people we meet, that they would see the love of Christ, Him working in their lives, and accept Christ as their Lord and Savior.
This offering also supports ministries on a year round basis such as Rick & Connie Ediger, home missionaries to South Central CO, Chad Clement with Mission OKC, reaching out to the inner city kids of Oklahoma City, OK., Cindy Lyddon with Grace Place Pregnancy Care Center, offering support from a godly perspective for unplanned pregnancies, and Lisa Batt the Oklahoma area wide coordinator for FCA.

Lisa Batt, Area Director
Our area ministry is growing at a God-like speed in the last year and a half since I have been on full-time staff with FCA. My job has three main areas—
1) minister to coaches as they work to influence and encourage athletes
2) grow current FCA campus huddles
3) help start new campus huddles.
Over the last year and a half we have gone from 3 huddles in OK Panhandle and 2 huddles in Southwest KS to 10 Panhandle huddles and 5 Southwest KS huddles. God has allowed me to have access to so many coaches where I am able to pray with them, encourage them, give them Bibles and Bible studies, and then in turn they bring me in to work with their teams with team building activities and chapel services. I have been able to serve coaches and athletes, present the gospel, lead Bible lessons, pray with teams, bring teambuilding activities, and much much more. God continues to open schools and allow the love of Jesus to be shown in atmospheres that are typically shut off from the religious world.
This summer FCA will be as busy as ever! We have a Volleyball Camp, Golf Camp, our Extreme Camp, 2 Leadership Camps, a Coaches Marriage Retreat, and a Coaches Clinic all taking place. We will provide Bibles, lessons, and sport to so many area kids.
I am so grateful for the support of the Bill Koehn mission offering. The finances help supply so much for this ministry. On top of that our church mission team supplies a meal to the campers at Volleyball and Golf camp one day. FCA’s vision is to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. By leading every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church. Thank you for helping us do this!
Our goal this year for the Bill Koehn offering is $2,000. Please prayerfully and sacrificially give to support our Bill Koehn Mission Offering and help reach out locally for Christ.
