400 students from Daytona area give their hearts to Christ at FCA huddles
Apr 19, 2014

DAYTONA (FBW)—During Fellowship of Christian Athletes school gatherings in the Daytona area Feb. 10-14, more than 400 students stood to make public decisions for Christ. They were among 750 students who heard FCA speaker Ed Carter give his testimony.

Carter was a sophomore offensive tackle for Marshall University in 1970. He was in Texas for his father’s funeral when 75 of his teammates and coaches were killed in a plane crash on their way to a game Nov. 14. Carter is now an evangelist, and speaks often at FCA events.

According to Kim Boyce, Volusia County area director of FCA, Carter “wove the Gospel throughout his testimony,” then invited students “to trust Jesus as their Savior.”

Carter spoke at six area high schools and at Stetson University, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and Bethune Cookman University. He also spoke to the Friday evening college Bible study at First Baptist Church in Daytona Beach. Seven students made decisions, three of whom made professions of faith, according to Lowell Lucas, education/evangelism pastor. Two will be baptized on Easter Sunday.

Boyce said FCA huddle coaches, some of whom are Baptist youth pastors, along with student officers are following up with those who made commitments.
