NCS

Welcome

Welcome to the Northwest Christian School Athletic Website, home of the Crusaders.

The goal of the NCS sports programs are to not only build strong athletes, but to mold these athletes into confident individuals with godly character and strong ethics. We desire to install in our athletes the desire to look out for the interest of others above their own and to recognize God’s hand in all we do. We strive to build programs that produce excellence in our players on and off the field.

1 Corinthians 9:24 / Philippians 3:14

As athletes, we work preparing to compete for the prize of winning. This is our goal. This goal is not what defines our success in the game of life. It is how we compete for every moment, giving God glory and honor for those moments, and drawing closer to Christ through those moments.

Note from Jim James

Our goal as players and coaches is to honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with all that we do. (Col. 3:23) We strive to compete in such a way that we may win (1 Cor 9:24) both on the field and in life. Our purpose is to not only build strong athletes, but to mold our athletes into confident individuals with Godly character and strong ethics. As athletes, we work preparing to compete for the prize of winning. This is our goal. This goal is not what defines our success in the game of life. It is how we compete for every moment, giving God glory and honor for those moments, and drawing closer to Christ through those moments.
