The Defender Way

The Defender Way summarizes our athletic department's commitments and approach to competitive athletics. Our approach is based on Romans 12:1: "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. This is your true and proper worship."

The four points of The Defender Way:

  • We are committed to the Great Commission and cultural mandate.
  • We are committed to equipping student-athletes to be servant leaders.
  • We are committed to the academic development of all student-athletes.
  • We are committed to the pursuit of championships.
