Lyle Witcher, South Georgia director for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, brought the Bainbridge Lions Club up to date Wednesday on the organization’s goals and traditions.

Witcher, who lives in Thomasville, opened his remarks by telling the Lions that Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a non-denominational, non-profit Christian sports organization that was founded in 1954.

“In schools throughout the country Fellowship of Christian Athletes have huddle groups which are non-denominational Christian sports meetings for small groups for bible study and devotion,” Witcher said.

Witcher says that everywhere he has been he has met with coaches, athletes and parents who are extremely dedicated to serving the Christian interests of the young athletes they serve as Christian role models.

“Coaches have a profound influence on the young athletes they work with,” Witcher said. “They serve as Christian role models during and after practices and games.”

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes representative for Decatur County and Seminole County is Greg McDonald.
