 FCA Coaches & Spouse Appreciation Dinner


Sunday, January 26, 2020 from 6-8pm


Cherry Hills Church
(2125 Woodside Rd, Springfield)


Over the past 20+ years, our vision has been to impact the greater Springfield Area for Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. We want to take this time to thank the men and women behind our ministry efforts. This event is designed to be a “thank you” to any and all coaches and their spouse for all that they do for our student athletes and the community overall!!

We know that a coach has the ability to impact many athletes over the course of their coaching career. Rev. Billy Graham was once quoted in saying, “One coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in a lifetime.” We want to take this time to thank and affirm you for all the work you do to impact players on the field and through ministry opportunities.

Our guest speaker for the evening is Coach Ron Brown.
Ron is in his second season as Nebraska's director of player development. He has a long association with Husker football, serving as an assistant coach for 24 seasons (1987-2003 and again from 2008-14).

Brown serves in a non-coaching role, mentoring Husker football student-athletes in numerous off-field development areas. He also assists in community outreach efforts for both Husker football players and staff. Brown was a part of three national championships at Nebraska, and he coached more than 40 academic all-conference players and nearly 40 players that went on to professional careers.

Brown spent four years from 2004 to 2007 as the Nebraska State Director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. A native of New York, Brown earned his bachelor’s degree from Brown in 1979, and a master’s degree from Columbia in 1982. Ron is married to Molvina Carter.
