AIA - Reach Freshmen Athletes for a Lifetime of Influence


“My most fervent prayer before leaving home was for God to provide a community of believers who were following Christ,” said Austin Carr, now a wide receiver in the NFL. 

God was faithful to answer Austin’s prayer through the generosity of partners like you, providing Christian fellowship and spiritual growth opportunities through Athletes in Action© on his campus.  Today, Austin and his wife Erica lead an AIA™ ministry, discipling professional and collegiate athletes each week. 

This week, more freshmen athletes will be arriving on campus amidst the continued uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Your support is urgently needed to reach these athletes now to help them grow strong in their faith. A generous gift of $25, $50, $100 or more will provide them with Athletes in Action Freshman Athlete Survival Tools, or FAST Packs. 

Each “FAST pack” includes: 

  • An Athlete’s Bible 
  • Access to faith and sport resources 
  • Invitations to local AIA ministries and events 
  • Opportunities to connect with a caring community … and ultimately with Jesus 
  • AIA stress ball 
  • Water bottle 
  • Healthy snacks 

Our goal this year is to put FAST Packs in the hands of 1,800 students on 18 different campuses around the country. But we can’t do it without you!  Many athletic departments are already welcoming athletes on campus. So, please take a moment to send your most generous gift today. And together, let’s give young athletes opportunities to say yes to Jesus for a lifetime!
