Hey there. Welcome to the website for Team FCA-Endurance Charlotte!
We are a group of endurance athletes who have a passion for serving God, and for training and competing in endurance events such as triathlon, running, and cycling. We want to take this desire to race and compete, and turn it upward to achieve something great for the Kingdom!
Our unified vision is to see Charlotte impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of endurance athletes.
Our mission is to present to endurance athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.
Have a look over our website, and JOIN US if you want to be part of the team. Membership is free, and member requirements are very minimal.
Spring is in the air and our 2011 race season is upon us! We’ve been laying out the team plans for this year and are excited to share what’s in store for this March thru November.
So we’re kindly asking for ~45 minutes of your time the evening of March 24th to kick off the 2011 season.
Given the size and geographic constraints of our huddle, we understand the challenges of getting everyone together in one room. However it is mission critical that we have an opportunity to communicate together as a huddle.
So to accommodate, we’ll conduct our 2011 kickoff meeting both in person as well as via teleconference/web conference. Details are as follows…
Date: Thursday, March 24th
Location: 16507 Northcross Dr. (Suite #?)
(I-77 exit 25. Here is a map: http://bit.ly/hO45R7 )
Remote: Dial-in and online access will be provided prior to the call
Whether in person or remote, we’re asking each huddle member please make it a priority to attend. Given everyone’s access to a phone and internet connection, most, if not all, should have no problem attending.
If you could please send us an email (leadership -at- enduranceCharlotte.org) and let us know…
1) If you can attend in-person
2) If you can attend remote
3) If you are unable to attend, but will be praying for us
Each of you is a key participant in God’s work in the endurance racing community. We look forward to locking arms with you this season and seeing Him move in and through us for His glory!
It’s already March, Spring is in the air, and Endurance athletes are all around getting ready to race. Our first race for this season is actually less than 3 weeks away! But before we jump into this new season, there is some very important information we need to discuss with every teammate. To make sure EVERYONE can get this information, we are holding two separate 2010 season kickoff meetings. One on a Thursday evening (CANCELED THURSDAY), and the other on Sunday afternoon.
If you want to be involved with the FCAE Huddle this season, you must attend one of these meetings.
We want to pray over the ministry, lay out our strategic plan, and get us going in the right direction to be most effective in our mission. The meeting will last 90 minutes at the most, and will hopefully be informative for you, and get you excited to race and be involved with the team.
LIFE Fellowship Church Offices (North Charlotte I-77 Exit 25)
15905 Brookway Dr.
Huntersville, NC 28078
Meeting 1: Thursday Mar 18th 7-8:30PM (CANCELED – Please attend Sunday!)
Meeting 2: Sunday Mar 21st – 6-7:30PM
Please reply to this and let us know which meeting you can attend. If you are unable to make either meeting but still want to be involved this year, please call.
FCA Endurance Charlotte had a blast helping out with the 2009 Lake Norman Triathlon on Saturday and Sunday Aug. 22/23 2009. We were able to connect and help out a lot of new athletes with our “novice table” at packet pickup. On race day, we had teammates helping hand out and take off timing chips. We were in the Transition Area on Sunday helping all the new folks and first timers get their bikes and run gear setup. What a blast!
We represented in a big way, and truly enjoy helping the race organizers and athletes alike. Check out our photos from the race. Next up, (unofficially) is the Take Flight triathlon in Huntersville, NC. Shine on!
We had a great time working out at Tri Latta for the Saturday and Sunday races. We met a lot of great people helping out at packet pickup, and enjoyed having everyone come by our tent to chat or sample Hammer products. Thanks to all the teammates who made this possible!

Huddle meeting Thursday 4/9/2009, at Caribou Coffee on East Blvd @ 6:30PM. Also, we’re racing as a team the Zebras Do Exist 5K in Spartanburg, SC on April 18th! This is a Saturday, and the race starts at 09:00AM. See the Zebras website for details. We will definitely have carpools going down, and will discuss at the huddle meet.
