NLCA Athletic Mission Statement

 

Our purpose is to provide strong Christian training and leadership that demands a commitment to academic excellence. In a positive manner we represent New Life Christian Academy on and off the playing field or court. We desire a program that is dedicated to the development of individual skills and to team performance while imputing the values of the Christian faith. This is to strengthen the commitment and character of each individual in our athletic program.

 

Our effort as an athletic program should be consistent with the effort of the entire school. We need to train effective Christians so they might go out and serve God in various occupational pursuits. We desire training that is inclusive of prominent character qualities such as goal-setting, self-sacrifice, fulfilling responsibility, developing effective communication skills, hard work, inner-character, self-discipline, and persevering spirit.
