Founded in 1954, The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is the largest Christian campus ministry in the world. It is on more campuses than the next three largest campus ministries combined. Since 2007, FCA worked with more than 356,250 people on 7,125 campuses, and with more than 46,000 coaches and athletes at camps across the globe. FCA’s purpose is to combine people’s passion for sports with their passion for Christ, and teach them that those two worlds don’t have to be separate. FCA strives to give meaning to the athletic nature that all of us are born with, and use it for something that stretches beyond sports. FCA accomplishes its goals by ministering to all aspects of sports and competition as represented by its “Four C’s”: Coaches, Camp, Campus and Community. Two of FCA’s earliest proponents were Branch Rickey, best known as the President and General Manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers who signed Jackie Robinson, thus breaking Major League Baseball’s color barrier, and Tom Landry, Hall of Fame Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Rickey was an underwriter, while Landry served as a trustee for the organization.

World Vision seeks to facilitate an engagement between the poor and the affluent that opens both to transformation. The organization respects the poor as active participants, not passive recipients, in this relationship. They are people from whom others may learn and receive, as well as give. The need for transformation is common to all. Together, both World Vision and the poor share a quest for justice, peace, reconciliation, and healing in a broken world. World Vision is a global organization with offices in approximately 100 countries. These interdependent national offices are bound together by a Covenant of Partnership, a biblically based agreement that enables them to work together in a unified and complementary way, motivated by a faith in Jesus Christ. World Vision’s staff serves alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people.
The Willow Creek Association (WCA) was founded in 1992, and works to link like-minded, action-oriented churches with each other, and with strategic vision, training, and resources. WCA is driven by a calling to serve Christ-following leaders as they build Biblically functioning churches, Acts 2 communities of faith that reach increasing numbers of lost people and grow them into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. The WCA's goal is to seek out and share God-given breakthroughs with widespread potential from churches around the world, supporting a rapid diffusion of innovation through the local church for the sake of Christ and His Kingdom. The WCA is a not-for-profit ministry, with more than 12,000 Member Churches from 90 denominations and 45 countries. These churches, and others served, represent a wide variety of sizes, denominations, and backgrounds, and are ministering in literally every corner of the world. While pursuing their own unique, God-given vision for ministry in their own communities, Member Churches confirm a shared commitment to Christ and a passion for reaching those who are not yet part of His family.
Founded in 1992, The Susan B. Anthony List’s mission is at the nerve center of the pro-life movement and political process. Advancing, mobilizing and representing pro-life women directly contradicts the claim that abortion is a woman’s right and the premise that abortion somehow liberates women. To accomplish the ultimate goal of ending abortion in this country, SBA List believes activating more pro-life women in the political and legislative arenas is critical. SBA List’s five-point mission reflects a renewed strategy at every level necessary to save lives and change the course of history: 1.Train pro-life and political activists, campaign staff, and candidates in the fundamentals of running successful grassroots and political campaigns. 2.Advocate the passage of pro-life legislation in Congress. 3.Dispel the myths about abortion through the media. 4.Identify, educate and mobilize women voters to vote pro-life. 5.Elect more women to Congress through our connected Candidate Fund. The organization is named after the suffragette Susan B. Anthony. Anthony was an outspoken critic of abortion, even calling abortion “child murder.” Although she is known for helping women win the right to vote, it is often untold in history that she and most early feminists were strongly pro-life.
R. Randolph Brinson, MD
Redeem the Vote (RTV) was founded by Dr. Randy Brinson during the 2004 U.S. Presidential Election to register people of faith regardless of party affiliation, or personal political beliefs, but as a matter of Christian principle, that people of faith must be engaged in the political debate and vote as a matter of moral imperative. Modeled after MTV’s “Rock the Vote” youth-voter registration campaign, Redeem the Vote enlists the help of many well-known Contemporary Christian musicians to register young evangelicals and promote political participation Since its inception, the organization has continued to reach out to both parties in an effort to find the best in both, and find solutions to the debate, not trump or destroy one person or party. Brinson claims, “This is in stark contrast to many of those conservative Christian organizations that seek to develop a partisan mentality and approach to problems that have solutions beyond partisan rhetoric. In fact, some believe the development of working relationships between Democrats and Republicans may even be counterproductive in the sense that large sums of money would be difficult to raise if their was no battle to be fought, or political enemy to be slain.”
