WHO WE ARE              

Vision

To be the premier faith-based soccer club in the world.

Mission

To provide a lifeline and a hope to Atlanta's inner-city youth through Christ-Centered, mentor-coach relationships.

Values

  • Integrity: This is a standard each must hold on an individual level. On both a private and public level all staff, volunteers, and players must strive to be people of integrity (Proverbs 11:3).
  • Serving: We will model Jesus’ example of serving each other, our staff, our volunteers, our players, our parents, our partners, and anyone we come in contact with. (John 13:1-7)
  • Teamwork: We will express our unity in Christ in all our relationships. Looking not only into our own interests but the interests of others. (Philippians 2:1-4)
  • Excellence: We will honor and glorify God in all we do. We seek to reflect his characteristics back to him and to others. We will do all work as if working for the Lord. Colossians 3:23-24)

LEADERSHIP

Adrienne Sherwood

FCA Urban Soccer Founding Director

I am a city living, sport playing, Jesus loving kinda girl. I surrendered my life to the Lord at the age 16 when a close friend died in a car accident. I got involved with FCA in college when I spent two summers interning with FCA in Atlanta and Italy. In Italy the Lord asked me to become his servant and give my life to serving him in the urban environment. I am nothing without Him and am so blessed to be a part of this amazing ministry. I have a wonderful husband, Chris and an energetic german shepherd / labrador Ruby. When I am not working with FCA, I am also a Realtor with Keller Williams Intown.

Passions: Family, not taking myself too seriously, exercising, playing chess.

I surrendered my life to the Lord at the age 11 when a camp I attended taught me about forgiveness. I got involved with FCA in high school when an FCA representative spoke to me and a few others about an opportunity about working at a FCA power camp at Morehouse. Throughout my years serving at power camp, I realized that I was growing and receiving as much as I was giving, and that was a joy that I didn't want to give up. So when the opportunity presented itself to join the FCA family I had already felt apart of for years, it was a no brainer! When I am not working with FCA, I am preparing for law school.

Passions: Learning new things, having an adventure, supporting abused and inner city children, movies

Life verse: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". Jeremiah 29:11
