FCA Coaches' and Family Camp at St. Simons Island


7 on 7 Passing League, June 2019



Greater Augusta FCA Leadership Board co-members DeWayne & Andrea Smoak were recognized for their level of financial partnership with FCA by being named Tom Landry donors at the GAFCA’s Coaches Cookout on May 4, 2019.

“It would be difficult to put into words the contributions that DeWayne and Andrea have made to GAFCA in the way of funding both operations and camp scholarships,” said GAFCA Metro Director Greg Wilson. “We have 23 coaches headed to FCA Coaches Family Camp down on St. Simon’s Island this summer due in large part to the Smoaks & others like them who have made an eternal investment in our area’s coaches.”

Wilson went on to say that GAFCA’s goal is to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

“We are seeking & praying for a revival in our area and we believe revival starts by investing in our coaches and making game-changing events like FCA Coaches Family Camp a reality for them. These coaches and their families will come back with a new perspective on life for sure!”

GAFCA now turns its attention to the coming camp season including hosting their 18th annual 7-on-7 High School Football Passing League Camp that will occur every Tuesday night in June (June 4, 11, 18, & 25) at Greenbrier High School. 15 local high school football programs are scheduled to participate.

FCA Coaches Family Camp Info Session Writeup

About 15 Greater Augusta area coaches convened at the home of GAFCA board member Shane (& Margaret) Pangle’s home in Appling on Sunday, March 24, 2019 to discuss & answer any questions that this group had about attending camp this summer.

The meeting was in response to an outpouring of local coaches’ commitments to attend the camp this coming July, a camp held annually at St. Simon’s Island at Epworth by the Sea during the Georgia High School Association’s “dead week” (when high school coaches are not allowed to work with their athletes at all).

GAFCA Metro Director Greg Wilson elaborated on the event, “We felt like it was the right thing to do – to host an event where our coaches and their families could get their questions answered because so many of them have never been before.”

GAFCA currently has commitments from 20 coaches & their families to attend this prestigious camp, a camp that Wilson says can be a real game-changer for many attendees.

“This camp’s staff does an unbelievable job of pouring some Jesus into the lives of coaches and their families,” Wilson continued. “No matter the age or stage of life, each coach, each spouse, and each child will be ministered to in such a profound way that all of them leave encouraged, equipped, and empowered by the end of the week.”

Wilson went on to say that he believes this year’s camp represents the potential for a mini-revival of sorts in the Augusta area.

“We are so excited to see such a high level of participation in our area this year. I cannot wait to see the eternal impact that this camp has on our coaches and their families!”
