Welcome to the Fellowship of Christian PAs, a specialty section of the CMDA. Our hope is that you will find encouragement and connection with other PAs as you explore these pages and information about our fellowship.

The purposes of the FCPA specialty section are as follows:

  • To share our faith, the strength of Jesus Christ, and our common concerns through a support network for PAs who acknowledge a personal relationship with Christ as Lord and Savior.
  • To provide a support network for the spiritual, professional, and personal lives of our members.
  • To equip and encourage members to share their faith in all aspects of life and to glorify God in service to others.

FCPA was established as an organization in 1982. It became an official caucus of the American Academy of Physician Assistants in 1996, and became a speciality section of CMDA in 2013.
