HOW TO START A HUDDLE

If you're ready to begin a Huddle on your campus, please take the following simple steps -

1. Pray - Ask the Lord to prepare your FCA start up.

2. Contact your local area rep - Find your local area rep by clicking here as they will be able to give you a better understanding of the campus ministry and answer any questions you may have.

3. Seek the Administration's blessing - FCA should be student-initiated and student-led.  Students should meet with school administrators to obtain approval and provide them with information regarding the FCA ministry.

4. Complete the paperwork - The following forms will need to be completed by an adult sponsor/coach before your huddle can be certified:

- Ministry Leader Application
- Campus Ministry Request Form

5. Identify student leaders and coaches - Select students and coaches who are Christians and are most likely to be leaders and volunteer their time.

6. Surround yourself with volunteers - Adult ministries are designed to support the FCA.  These adults can meet together, raise funds and assist in activities.

7. Hold an organizational session - Host a meeting with those who are interested in leading FCA to discuss a possible meeting schedule and what FCA might look like on your campus. 

8. Review the available resources - Our Campus Ministry Kit includes a Huddle Playbook, FCA Athlete's Bible and a Campus DVD with video-enhanced Bible studies, ministry planner and additional training.  Be sure to check out Campus Tools to find additional resources online.

9. Develop your Leadership Team - Invite your FCA staff to hold a Student Leadership Training once you have a team in place. They will better equip you to discover the many resources FCA provides, provide a framework for an actual meeting and help to create a vision for the impact that FCA can have on your campus.

10. Invite students to your Huddle - Continue to surround your huddle in prayer and seek out the Lord as your school year gets underway.
