Cary Coleman, Founder and President, grew up in Garland, Texas as a pastor's kid. Throughout his high school years he played both football and baseball, and then began college at Tennessee Temple University. He then transferred to Dallas Baptist University, where he majored in Physical Education. Following three years of coaching in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Cary moved to Lynchburg, Virginia where he was an assistant football coach at Liberty University for three years. During his time at Liberty, Cary met his wife, Karen, and they were wed. Cary also cofounded S.C.O.R.E. camps, which were designed for all sports, during his tenure at Liberty. In their third year, the camps became strictly for cheerleading. Shortly thereafter, Cary and Karen relocated to Albany, Georgia, where Cary was an Athletic Director for Sherwood Christian Academy. After serving at Sherwood, the couple moved to Atlanta where Cary served as Athletic Director (as well as football coach) for the Master's Christian Academy. It was during this time that Cary felt the Lord leading him to take SCORE to a new level, and trust the Lord fully with this amazing ministry opportunity. In a step of faith, Cary sacrificed his job and began working on the SCORE mission full-time.
Soon after, SCORE changed its name to the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders and has continued the growth it has experienced since the first thought of cheerleading camps entered Coleman's mind.
Karen has been amazingly supportive throughout the journey. Karen and Caylin have been able to join Cary at many of the camps, competitions and conventions over the past few years. Karen is currently in her second year teaching third grade at Sugar Hill Christian Academy.
Several years ago, God provided the Coleman's with a special gift: Caylin Brooke. The Coleman's adopted this precious little lady, drastically changing and blessing their lives forever. Caylin is seven years old and is in first grade at SHCA. She just completed her third year cheering for the First Redeemer Redhawks who participate with Impact cheerleading. If you look closely you will see Caylin in most of the FCC and Impact publications.
Cary's life verse is Luke 1:37, which says, "For nothing is impossible with God."

Jana Conrad joined the FCC team as the Spiritual Life Director. Her passion goes far beyond writing. She has a desire to reach out to the FCC Coaches with loving ministry and be of help in the time of need. Cheerleading and decoration are two of Jana's favorite passions to use in bringing others to Jesus. She has been involved in cheerleading since the early 1990's. Her twelve years of coaching has taken her to national level competitions. Her new Bible-based decorating book, "Save Perfection for Heaven" is fun, insightful and a great way to talk about God.
