Our “Home Team” Celebration will benefit the Whitfield/Murray Co. FCA Ministry, directed by Dave Grusnick. This year's banquet will be held on Thursday, February 9 at 6:30 at the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center. Through your generous giving, last year we were able to: send 125 athletes and coaches to camps; received 1200 commitments to stay Drug and Alcohol free, distribute over 550 Bibles and over 3000 students heard the Gospel of Christ through our local FCA’s. Thank you to all our "Home Team" partners who made this possible through your generous gifts of encouragement! Our local FCA staff currently has over 1900 students meeting weekly through FCA in 15 schools in Murray and Whitfield counties!
Over the past several years, our banquet celebration has provided over 50% of the resources needed for FCA to minister to all our schools in Whitfield and Murray Counties. FCA is clearly an efficient and effective platform to reach our young people with the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Last year we had over 1100 people in attendance and this year our goal is to equal or exceed that! Dress will once again be casual just like last year.
This year's keynote speaker is D.J. Shockley! “We are excited to have D.J. as the speaker for our 2017 event! D.J. is an incredible Christian athlete with strong character and determination” says David Grusnick, director of our local FCA. His testimony is sure to be fascinating for banquet attendees. D.J. Shockley is a former University of Georgia (UGA) quarterback. He led the team to an SEC Championship in 2005 and was named the game’s MVP. He was also awarded the FCA Bobby Bowden Football Player of the Year Award the same year. In 2006, he was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the 7th round where he served as a backup quarterback for four and a half years. He is a devout Christian and speaks openly about his faith.
We will also spotlight several local athletes and coaches. We have wonderful blessings to share and would be deeply grateful for your attendance!
