FCA-WV Events and Camps
Night of Champions
— Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 6:00pm
The Annual FCA Night of Champions is an evening you will want to make part of your calendar each year. There is always a featured guest speaker. In the past those have included Tony Dungy, Lou Holtz and Woody Williams. Also, during the evening, we honor a local volunteer with the Impact Award. This is given in recognition of the influence that person has had on the ministry in West Virginia.
This year, we will have Darryl Strawberry, a former professional baseball right fielder and author who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball.
Tickets and Table sponsorships are available. With a table comes 2 VIP passes to meet Darryl and get a photo before the banquet. (VIP begins at 5 p.m.)
Darryl Eugene Strawberry (born March 12, 1962) is an American former professional baseball right fielder and author who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB).
Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Strawberry was one of the most feared sluggers in the sport, known for his prodigious home runs and his intimidating presence in the batter’s box with his 6-foot-6 frame and his long, looping swing that elicited comparisons to Ted Williams’.
During his career, he helped lead the New York Mets to a World Series championship in 1986 and the New York Yankees to three World Series championships in 1996, 1998 and 1999.
We have several camp opportunities for the upcoming summer months. Be sure to check them out and get registered soon! All FCA camp registration is done online now and it is much better to do it ahead of time. Registration is available for some camps on the day they start, but if you register online before, then your check-in time is less than 3 minutes.

Home Team Drive
This is our annual fund drive to raise our needed budget. This is where we ask people to consider joining our team and support us at any amount. Gifts can be one time, monthly, or quarterly. There are extra incentives for becoming an “Automatic Monthly Partner” and we would be happy to tell you about that if you contact us. This campaign, while always ongoing, is focused on in the fall through the end of each year.
