The FCAP Mission We represent Christ in the airlines through meaningful relationships and quality work. We are not trying to add more time or events to our life or busy work schedule. Instead we learn to capture the opportunities that are already are around us daily in the workplace.
The FCAP Vision “Our prayer and desire in FCAP is to see God connect Christians together in every area of the airline workplace throughout the world; so that people in airports, offices, technical centers and in-flight operations will have an opportunity to see the presence of the Living God working through the lives of His people on the job.”
Making Your Connection By the time you retire, you will have spent approximately 90,000 hours on the job.

- Our Connection with God in our Workplace: This is first and foremost, our connecting with God view of work…which exceeds the company or union’s view. God’s view provides us the best reason for going to work and doing our job. To be a Christian in the workplace starts by our working with God’s view of work. This is higher than that of the company, though it will not conflict with it. Instead it will benefit our company and bring an influence to our workplace. (Article: A Higher Calling)
- Our Connection with People in the Workplace: connect people, because ministry is about people connecting with people there. This is done by forming groups when people have a place and regular time to meet. Or it is creatively done as people connect in forming a network where people in a local area stay connected through email, prayer request and information that about opportunities to help people around us.

- Our Connection with Ministry in the workplace: Ministry in the workplace is not about creating events or importing church programs into your work…it is about focusing on the people and circumstances, that are around you every day. FCAP encourages Christians to connect together to form a visible group that can meet regularly during break times or a part from work. Or form viable network that serves to keep people connected by exchanging workplace prayer requests and materials that relate God’s word to work related matters.
