North Central WI FCA Staff

Jeff Tarras, Area Director

I love Jesus and I love sports. Being part of FCA brings those together giving me many opportunities to share Jesus with athletes and coaches in North Central Wisconsin. Through the school huddles, camps, clinics, events, and coaches ministry, it is our goal to reach every coach and every athlete on every campus for Christ. 

Russ Bahr, Area Representative

I have not always had the opportunity to do what I love and openly share the life changing Gospel of Jesus with people. Working with FCA gives me the opportunity to combine my love of sports with my passion for God. 

Brent Aschenbrenner, Area Representative 

I'm a sports fan and I love Jesus. FCA is a perfect fit for me. I'm able to go onto the campus and help kids understand their bible and Jesus and his gift of eternal life. When I was in FCA in my high school years I always thought about how great a job it would be to be the FCA guy. I'm here now and loving it. I'm married to my wife of 13 years Julaine and have two kids; a son Trygve and a daughter Ashlyn. I love developing connections with the love of God and the Bible as the common thread between the connection. I'm excited to develop and grow the huddles in Wood and Clark counties and help see how FCA can help the communities in these areas.    Living a changed life.  Romans 12:2

Cierra Hess, Intern

I have been involved in the FCA organization since I was in sixth grade. I attended FCA bible studies through middle school and high school. I have also been involved in sports since elementary school, as a fan and a participant. I am currently going to college for a major in Elementary Education and a minor in English as a Second Language, with an emphasis in Spanish. I have worked with kids for many years through Christian organizations and in the church. This last year, God presented me with an amazing opportunity to serve Him and further His kingdom. I accepted this calling to be the summer intern with Fellowship of Christian Athletes in the Northcentral Wisconsin Area. It is only with prayer support and the grace of God, that I will be able to bless the youth and individuals that I will work with and influence. Serving as the intern will impact others and strengthen my relationship with God. It will also stretch my comfort zone by meeting new people and leading others to Christ.
