The purpose of the GCA Family Teacher Fellowship (FTF) is to enhance and support the relationship between the administration, faculty/staff and families of GCA. This includes providing volunteers for grade-level and school-wide events. Spiritual growth and community connection, both inside GCA and outside in the greater community, are emphasized as we partner together in providing a Kingdom Education for our children.
Every GCA family is automatically a member of the Family Teacher Fellowship. There are many ways to be involved in the FTF through giving of your time as we FTF help to coordinate the volunteer and fundraising efforts for GCA. We need volunteers to give of their time and talents to help with class parties, special events, athletic events and more. We also need families who are willing to support the FTF financially as we provide funds to pay for special facility improvements, equipment and supplies for all athletic teams and to cover needs identified by administration and faculty for all grade levels in other areas, such as academics and fine arts.
Our primary source of funding is through Swordsmen Club Sponsorships, GCA Spirit Wear sales, concession sales and direct donations. Specific corporate sponsorship opportunities are available for scoreboards and special events as well. Please see below for ways you can become involved today! We look forward to serving with you!
Interested in volunteering? Click here to complete the Volunteer Interest Survey or reach out to email@example.com with questions. While we will be sharing many other volunteer opportunities soon, our athletics’ department is already ready for our help as you can see below.
There are many opportunities to help with concessions, ticket booth, spirit wear, chains, and more! If all of us volunteer a couple times each year, we’ll easily have all our sporting events covered! It’s also a great way to get to know more of our GCA families!
We understand that you want to watch your kids play; we do too!! If your son plays football, it’s completely fine to sign up to work a volleyball game or even wait until basketball season! Just don’t forget to get your 2 required games per sport scheduled as soon as you’re able!
