Who We Are
We are a family of ministers and ministries connecting to advance God’s Kingdom by the power of the Holy Spirit through the local church.
As a multi-ethnic, intergenerational, and international family of ministers and ministries, we want to connect in leadership, ministry, and missions to advance God’s Kingdom together. The FCA has its roots in the historical Pentecostal move of God at the beginning of the twentieth century. It has since grown to be several hundred churches in the USA and Canada. Hundreds of other ministries have started around the world because of the FCA’s strong focus on sending missionaries and raising up national leaders. We connect as ministers and churches to encourage continued growth in these areas of leadership, ministry, and missions.
We Connect in Leadership through regular Regional Connections for Pastors and Leaders. These are great times of equipping and encouragement. We also gather yearly in the Spring in Canada and the United States for national conventions. Every even-numbered year, the U.S. and Canada combine their national conventions to hold an International Convention with invitations extended to FCA partners from around the globe.
We value pastoral leaders and believe there are leaders within our regions who have been gifted to function as Elders within our Fellowship. Fellowship Elders work with regional coordinators to help provide care and counsel for ministers, churches, and ministries within their various regions.
We Connect in Ministry by sharing the wisdom and experiences of FCA Ministers on our Blog and through regional ministries for kids, youth, young adults, families, men, women, and couples. Each region has different ways that they’re connecting in ministry, from camps to retreats to conferences…find out more about joint ministry opportunities at the next Regional Leadership Connection near you.
We Connect in Missions by joining together to raise up, send out, and support missionaries from our local churches. We believe that God is on a mission to reach the lost and we are privileged to join Him in His mission, both at home through missional ministries, and around the world through ongoing international missions. We have a very strong history of missions involvement and partnership in our local churches which has led to an average of 2.6 active missionaries per FCA church!
We would love to connect with you to advance God’s Kingdom together!
