PROVO – A new local faith group has helped Non-LDS BYU athletes feel more comfortable on BYU’s campus.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes help athletes of different faiths worship together in different ways. For instance, in place of the traditional LDS family home evening, members meet together on Mondays and Wednesdays to hear spiritual messages and to participate in activities.
“I was looking for [inclusion]. It was hard, like, I wasn’t a member [of the LDS Church], and I was very strong in my faith,” said former BYU athlete Trevor Samson. “I wanted to find people of the same faith and just be able to talk with them.”
FCA also meets on Wednesday nights at Centerpoint church in Orem, and provides a solid religious foundation for attendees. Students say groups like FCA help provide a better experience for new athlete recruits who are not of the LDS faith.
