Last night, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes hosted its 4th annual FCA Legacy Banquet in Kearney at the Younes Conference Center. This year’s event featured Zane Fleming who made the trip from Edmund, OK to share a story of hope in the midst of horrible suffering. Zane and Ann Fleming’s son, Nate, died in a plane crash involving the Oklahoma State basketball team back in 2001. The story of Nate and the tragedy was told last year by ESPN’s Outside the Lines. The telling of his story was told to an audience that included families and individuals connected to the accident that occurred near Broken Bow last summer which resulted in the death of two coaches, Zane Harvey and Anthony Blum, along with Al Sherbeck. All three of these men were involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.Zane’s message of grieving and finding joy/hope in Jesus Christ was compelling to all in attendance. You couldn’t find a dry eye in the room.
The FCA also recognized the Legacy of the Gospel through the FCA in the community of Broken Bow for the last 30 years. It is a story of God using ordinary people in a school and community to make a difference for Jesus Christ through the platform of sports. A special video can be viewed below.
Perhaps the most important part of the evening came as Pastor Bob Gannon proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Legacy Banquet’s purpose is to celebrate the legacy of the gospel through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and to raise funds to further the reach of the FCA ministy in the Kearney area and raise camp scholarship funds for area athletes and coaches.
