Welcome to FCA!
We are beyond excited to announce that Britton Hastings is joining FCA Staff!
Over a year ago Ashli and I, along with our staff and Leadership Board, began praying that God would call the right person to join us in going after this vision to transform Carroll County. Our prayers were answered last Friday when Britton accepted the position to become the Southern Carroll FCA Area Representative!
Britton is a recent graduate from McDaniel College who brings a vibrant ministry background to FCA. Through high school and college, he has lead Young Life in many different capacities. When arriving on campus as a freshman football player at McDaniel, Britton helped establish and grow the first FCA Huddle, as well as leading an FCA Bible Study for male athletes. As a junior in college, Britton interned at Crossroads Community Church where he helped serve locally and abroad.
While at McDaniel, Britton was instrumental in the life-change of his roommate and teammate, George. Britton invited George to FCA on campus as a freshman where George received his first bible and heard about Jesus clearly for the first time. George is now a key leader at McDaniel FCA and is leading service projects on campus through Operation Christmas Child. All because of the influence of a bold teammate.
Britton will be going to FCA's National Support Center in Kansas City, MO from February 20-22 for training before he begins the fundraising process. Once fully funded, Britton will serve Southern Carroll County (Liberty, Century, South Carroll, the feeder middle schools, community teams, etc.). We are excited to watch how God uses Britton on these campuses and in this community!
Why are you excited to join FCA Staff?
"I have been working in the South part of Carroll County with Young Life at Century High School and South Carroll High School. That experience has given me a heart for that part of the county. Having a small taste of FCA in high school and then helping to start the FCA huddle at McDaniel College really made me interested in FCA. I had never been involved in a ministry that had a goal of reaching athletes and coaches specifically. I have been playing sports my entire life and feel called to full time ministry. Having a passion for both sports and middle and high school kids only makes sense for me to join the FCA family!"
