The Huddle diversity and growing participation is creating spiritual transformation, energy and unity.
We would keep our eyes on Jesus and live for His pleasure and glory every day in our homes, on the fields and courts, and in our communities.

New Mexico FCA’s Night of Champions will honor coaches and athletes in the state. We pray this event continues to bring people and resources to the ministry in the state.
