Don't miss the University of Alabama FCA Golf Classic hosted at the beautifully manicured and colorfully landscaped Wynlakes Country Club in Montgomery, AL on Monday, June 25th!

The vision of FCA at The University of Alabama is to equip a generation of student-athletes and coaches, who will lead from a vantage point of biblical truth, and impact their sphere of influence for the glory of God in all that they do.  Last year, Coach Jeremy Pruitt referred to Coach Cramer as the "spiritual father" of the coaching staff!

This year, former running back and current U of Alabama Football staff member, Glen Coffee, will be our guest host!  He will be accompanied by a number of other coaches and staff!  

And you want prizes?  Ask last year's winning team how they have enjoyed their 65" flat screens that they won!  Or, just talk to one of the golfers who had to ask for help in carrying his player packet to the car!

Wow!  What a year!   More than 100 student-athletes received their diplomas this past weekend!  It seems like only yesterday that they arrived on campus!  What an incredible privilege it has been to be a part of equipping them with the tools for the next wave of life.

No tool is more important to navigating life than learning how to hear from the One who authored life, and gives us purpose which compels us to be more than hamsters on a treadmill.   Over the course of the spring semester, at least 20 student-athletes completed the 12 verse memory challenge!  Some completed their second twelve!  That's 24 passages of Scripture committed to memory one the past school year!

Since 1964, FCA has been a part of raising up the next generation of those who will live boldly, yet with great humility, as they impact their spheres of influence for the glory of God.   

To our alum, thanks for letting us build on what you left behind!  It gives Wendy and me great joy to see the photos from some of you who with us when we arrived in 2005, and we hesitate to tell you this, but your kids may even be better looking than you were!

To those of you getting ready to graduate high school and head our way!  Congrats!  We are looking forward to meeting you and becoming some of your biggest fans!   We'll be rolling by the time you get here this summer!

You can find whatever you're looking for at the Capstone.   It's all here!  Our team wants to extend an invitation to get started right by settling in on the most important question - the vertical!

If you want to check out the Christian worldview, but aren't quite sure about it - we're safe.  If you want to grow in our understanding of who God is, and what it means to begin to order life around Him - we've been there.  If you can't remember a time when God wasn't a part of your life - we'll stretch you!

Until then, enjoy the celebrations!  A job well done.  In the meantime, I'll just look out the window of the FCA office and watch a football practice field that is currently covered in dirt, transformed into the most beautiful carpet in the state in the next 2 1/2 weeks!

Well . . . that is . . . after I get back from taking some of our student-athletes to Panama on a mission trip . . . and after we get back from taking some of coaches to Germany on another mission trip . . . and . . . you get the picture . . .

For His Glory at the Capstone,

"Coach" Cramer
