The Dordt College Athletic Department has adopted "The Defender Way" as a tangible summary of the commitments of the department and its approach to competitive athletics.
The Defender Way is based on Roman's 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 are:
- We are commited to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
- 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.
