Athletics Overview

Our Purpose

To develop the Christian character of young men and women, using the many lessons learned in success and failure to cultivate their skills and abilities to live based on their relationship with Jesus Christ, for the glory of God

Our Mission

Participating in a sport is a wonderful opportunity to improve physical skills and athletic abilities, as well as to learn and utilize lessons in discipline, fitness, teamwork, and attitude. We intend to use this blessing from God to enjoy our health and His creation. We also have the great privilege of letting our lights shine before men, as we play this sport to the glory of God through Christ His Son, our Savior. Therefore, let it be our primary goal to glorify God’s name and edify one another throughout the season. We look forward to learning these lessons together as we walk humbly before our God.

Core Values

  • Christ-Centered: Build character and develop a servant’s heart through hard work and discipleship.
  • Team: Value the concept of “team” as greater than the concept of the “individual.”
  • Lofty Goals: Strive for excellence in all things.
  • Commitment: Participate fully and be on time.
  • Respect: Be respectful of coaches, teammates, officials, fans, and all you come in contact with.
  • Humility: Consider others of higher esteem than yourself.
