Sports Leadership Camp

 DFW FCA Sports Leadership Camp
June 20-23, 2017

Registration is now closed.

We're looking for student-athletes who want to grow in their faith & sport. Will you be a leader on and off the field of play?

Camp Objective: To develop students as athletes and leaders in a Christ-centered atmosphere. Through sports-specific training, powerful leadership instruction and character development, attendees will be challenged and inspired to become "top flight" leaders on their teams and on their school campuses. 

Why FCA Camp? This dad tells why. 

"My son came to your leadership camp last summer and it had a tremendous impact on him. Not only did he come back with a fire for Christ but a fire to see our huddle grow. Through his leadership, our huddle has gone from a handful at weekly meetings to an impact-making group that is greatly influencing our school." Tim Berg

Jeff Sparkman 

Grounded in music at a young age, Jeff was introduced to guitar and piano by his father and uncle. In 2007, Jeff became the worship leader for Trinity Church of Cedar Hill, a large church in the south Dallas area. His team’s level of musical ability and expertise afforded opportunities for Jeff to write numerous songs, then record live shows, resulting in the production of four albums.

Over the years, Jeff’s local notoriety have brought offers to produce three of his songs on Christ for the Nation’s albums. His most acclaimed songs on Integrity Music include “You are Exalted” and “Oh the Blood.” His first solo album, First Love, debuted in 2012. The album was positively reviewed by Worship Leader Magazine and the song “I Want to Know You,” was chosen to be on one of Song Discovery's compilation albums.

A family man, Jeff is married to his wife, Sarah, and together they have three children, and reside in Tucson, AZ. as worship leaders of Victory Worship Center.


"I wanted to let you know that the kid I sent is NOT the kid I got back! Wow! What an amazing, life changing experience that camp has been for him! DFW Sports Leadership Camp TOUCHED him, and taught him things in 4 days I've tried to teach him for years! I'm in awe at how much he received from the camp, his huddle leader, & the kids with him in such a short time! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!” - Camper Mom
