Northwest Christian Schools’ Athletic Programs strive to provide a setting for student athletes to develop and display Christ-like character in all situations. “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17
Northwest Christian’s goal is to help meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of young people through the provision of a variety of athletic programs. Well-organized and managed athletic programs convey many Biblical principles taught by the Lord Jesus. Unity, others first, stewardship, commitment, self-control and respect for authority are only a few principles that characterize individuals who are working together to build a team that honors the Lord Jesus. Those who are involved with a desire and commitment to honor the Lord will immeasurably gain from the opportunities provided through specific athletic programs.
The athletic program at Northwest Christian is extracurricular, and participation is not a right but a privilege. We want students to realize that their first priority is academics; not athletics.
The process and programs provided for achieving NWC’s purposes are filled with many unique opportunities. The Northwest Christian Athletic Program strives to help provide athletes, coaches, parents and fans with four distinct opportunities:
- The opportunity to disciple each other toward greater perfection in Christ.
- The opportunity to develop skills in areas of physical and athletic competency.
- The opportunity to use the talents and time God has given us, as a witness to others.
- The opportunity to support and enjoy the collective efforts of teams that focus on honoring the Lord Jesus.
