Meet your challenge. Grow in grace. Communicate with confidence.

We challenge and equip ambassadors for Christ to communicate truth with integrity and grace.

Since 2001, NCFCA Christian Speech & Debate League has empowered students to apply and communicate their worldview with skill and clarity. Whether a student is terrified of public speaking or loves a rousing debate, our training and competition will provide a supportive opportunity for them to apply a biblical worldview to real-life issues.

  • Hope for the Future
    "To me, the NCFCA is one of the most important organizations on the planet. When I attend an NCFCA event and experience the excellence of the teenage competitors as well as the superb work being done behind the scenes by parents and volunteers, my hope for the future is restored."

  • Impactful Volunteerism
    I volunteer with several nationally-known organizations and have never encountered
    a volunteer event this organized and this impactful.

  • Best Decision Ever!
    I appreciate this organization so much! One of the best decisions we ever made
    as parents was to have our children participate in NCFCA.

  • NCFCA Has Built My Confidence
    "In the three years I've competed, NCFCA has built my confidence, given me the tools to be passionate, and prepared me to discuss important issues in a way that glorifies the Lord. Earlier this year I filmed a video in response to a Teen Vogue article. It ended up going viral, which is not something I was expecting. People were surprised to see someone so young able to speak so well. But the only reason I was able to write the script, and present it the way I did, was because of NCFCA."
