"Being in FCA at Maryville College allows me to meet with others who share my faith. It allows me to fellowship with other student-athletes and focus my mind on God. It has definitely been an important part of my faith while at MC."
Adam Diggs '19
"FCA at Maryville College has given me a platform to share my faith and testimony with teammates on a deeper level. It has changed my life to have teammates that hold me accountable while also growing and struggling with our walk with Christ. It provides an opportunity to sit down in a small group and get to hear what guys are going through. There is something so real to see someone open up and talk about how hard life can be. Through FCA, I have been able to meet some of my best friends."

"Maryville College FCA first impacted my life as a high school junior about 20 years ago. Being invited to worship with the college students is one of the reasons I chose to attend Maryville. Maryville College’s FCA is still impacting lives on this campus and in our community today for God’s kingdom."
