Global Initiative - OverviewAfter much prayer and heart searching, FCC has decided to expand our Global focus. After 25 years of ministry, we are in a position to use our influence to create opportunities and awareness to participate and partner with causes that will promote Social Justice around the world while allowing us to stay true to our mission of the Great Commission. We have created a clear strategy based on the biblical game plan of Acts 1:8 which is to spread the gospel to "Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the utmost parts of the earth…"
Our Jerusalem involves expanded ministry here in the USA. If faithful church attendance was considered going to church two times a month, then only 4% of teens today would fall into that group. We are only 4% away from the next generation not understanding the importance of a relationship with Christ. With that in mind FCC and Impact have decided to expand our Jerusalem beyond our summer camp ministry in several areas:
Impact Inner City Outreach:Impact will be joining with churches and schools who are committed to partnering together to offer cheerleading related activities in an effort to reach these future leaders. While society continues to ignore these less fortunate, we feel compelled to use the platform we are passionate about to reach out to these children.
Donations earmarked specifically for this project will go directly to scholarship Inner City children with camp tuition, program fees, and competition expenses. We have also started an Impact Cheerleading recycling program that will allow participating churches and schools to donate their uniforms each season back to Impact to be distributed directly to these inner city programs. It is our desire to one day see teams from the inner city represented at camps and competitions as a result of generous individuals being open to God’s leading in their lives.
Our Judea and Samaria consist of short term mission trips in the areas just outside the USA such as Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Puerto Rica, Dominican Republic, and a few other countries. These trips have been established to use a combination of FCC staff, coaches, and high school cheerleaders to spread the gospel through cheer clinics and camps. This will also expose the mission field to those attending.
Donations earmarked specifically for this project will go directly to individuals who will be answering the call to short term mission trips. You will have an option to donate specifically to an individual’s account or directly to the project. It is our desire to assemble a team of staffers, coaches, and cheerleaders to do ministry commencing the summer of 2011. We hope one day to implement an "Adopt a Cheerleader" program from the children attending camps each summer. This will allow you to directly invest in the life of one of the campers who will be attending camp.
Our uttermost parts of the world consist of three additional areas of outreach:
3 Ways to Get Involved in the FCC Global Initiative:
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying; "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
