FCA in Hawaii...

In 2007, Barrett Awai was hired by Youth For Christ Hawaii to do high school huddles.  As he studied more on FCA’s 4 C’s, he saw a much larger population FCA needed to reach the Gospel to.

YFC Hawaii was very supportive of seeing through this growth.  Barrett started FCA Hawaii’s Coaches Fellowship 808 and his wife Tara started Behind The Bench.  They saw such a need and saw that there focus shifted naturally to reach the Coaches and their family.

After 6 years under the care of YFC Hawaii, a collaborate decision to rebirth FCA Hawaii was inevitable.

On July 1, 2009 FCA hired Barrett as its sole employee to direct its operations.

Currently there are 200 plus student athletes being reached at high school and university huddles.  Chaplain programs birthed at University of Hawaii for baseball and women's volleyball and softball. 

There are 33,000 plus high school student athletes annually in Hawaii, therefore, many more souls to reach for the Glory of Christ Jesus!

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men (women), regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
