As a Christian school, we have the unique opportunity to promote Christ in everything we say and do. Relying on His grace and believing in His gospel, we strive to uphold the highest standards in our athletic program. We acknowledge that student athletes, coaches, parents, fans, and administration all have important roles to play to insure that we please God and represent Him well to a fallen world that needs to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ. Student athletes at our school, whether or not they personally profess Christ as Lord, are expected to be good examples to others. Discipline, dedication, courage, teamwork, and humble service towards others are to be the character qualities of all our coaches and players.
The apostle Paul wrote to his son in the faith Timothy these words “Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set for the believers an example in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity” 1 Timothy 4:12. To this end, each person in the program serves others for the greater good. The athletic director oversees the spiritual climate of the athletic program, develops coaches, and communicates the vision and goals of the program. Each and every coach in our program maintains a strong Christian testimony while training individual athletes and the team as a whole to compete with excellence in their sport. Coaches balance truth and grace (John 1:17) in the way they engage students. Remembering that students need both challenge and encouragement, coaches connect with student athletes in a way that engages the heart and mind of students in order to bring out their best.
Student athletes always give their best effort (1 Corinthians 9:24), show respect to their coaches and fellow players, and follow the code of conduct. Parents take responsibility for the behavior of their children (Ephesians 6:1-4), support school policies, and volunteer in the athletic program as they are able. GCS fans use godly speech and behavior when cheering our teams along in their athletic contests (Ephesians 4:29). Administration develops policies and procedures that are in line with Scripture, support the mission of the school, and seek the good of every student athlete. Our athletic program is integral to the educational goals of GCS. Student athletes are given the opportunity to grow in confidence, skills, and Christ-like character through our teams. Sports bring excitement and school spirit to our community. We thank God in advance for all He will do in our athletic department this year.
