Athletic Department Mission Statement
The athletic program at Bracken Christian School exists to guide the young people involved to a better understanding of their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Many circumstances arise in preparation for and during athletic competition that offer opportunities for God’s principles to be applied in the lives of the athletes. A goal of our athletic program is to seize these opportunities. Dedicated coaches help young people relate the victories and defeats, the hard work and teamwork to their daily walk with the Lord.
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance, for you serve the Lord Jesus Christ." -- Col. 3:23-24
This verse states the philosophy of athletics for Bracken Christian School, in that everything we do within the athletic department will be done unto our Lord Jesus Christ. Our staff, athletes, fans, and parents are to glorify the name of Jesus Christ by their words, attitudes, and actions, both on and off of the field or court. We must provide opportunities for Christian encouragement and discipline for our students through our athletic programs. All policies and procedures that are brought out by the athletic department are done so with the intent of teaching and instilling Christ-like qualities in the students for them to put into use in their daily lives.
