The BC Christian Academy Athletics Program was created with the purpose of helping young men and women develop their faith, so they can use their athletic gifts and talents to bring honour, glory and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Over the last 7 years we have attempted to provide the foundation for these athletes that will not only help them to succeed athletically but also advance in their pursuit of God’s heart. We use resources from Christian organizations such as “Fellowship of Christian Athletes” and Pastor Joe Ehrmann’s “Inside Out Coaching” that assist our staff in teaching our athletes to develop their own faith in Christ. We also help them understand what it means to be a man or woman living for Christ while participating in athletics. Team Bible study and devotions are a part of the team’s daily routine and through these we develop the competitor for Christ. It is our goal that these athletes are not only impacted in their athletic careers, but are empowered to become all that Christ has created them to be.
Athletes are encouraged and taught about the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ “Competitors Creed” and are encouraged to implement it not only when they compete but in everything they do. Our foundational verse for our program is 1 Corinthians 10:31, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
There are a variety of sports in which our athletes can take part and they will be taught by some of the top coaches in their sport. Many of our athletes have represented our province and our country on both provincial and national teams. We strive to build an athletic program that reaches out to all athletes. We help them find purpose that enables them to reach out to others and make a difference for Christ.
Athletes of each gender have at least one sport in which they can compete during each season of play.
