Our Athletic Director
Committed to Success
Our goal is to assist parents in educating, equipping, and encouraging their children to influence the world for Christ. Our commitment is to develop people who enjoy success in the athletic arena and their spiritual walk as believers in Christ. By emphasizing a Christ-like character and a standard of excellence rooted in God’s Word, we strive to help each athlete grow as Jesus did in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).
Below we have a note from our Athletic Director, John Chappell about how the athletic department at Families of Faith Christian Academy defines SUCCESS.
Striving to Understand a Christlike Christian walk Everyday while Serving our Savior
SUCCESS is something we all want to achieve. No one goes through life looking to fail or be unsuccessful. As an athletic program, we want to be highly successful.
We challenge our athletes to achieve the highest possible levels. To push themselves to excellence, both on the field of play and off.
SUCCESS for us is more than athletics though. The concept is to improve character. One common mistake people make when they read our definition of SUCCESS is thinking we’re OK with losing games. That’s not true. But, we’re not going to win at all costs.
To me and our coaches, SUCCESS means winning a ball game, without embarrassing the other team. It means developing Christian character in ourselves and our players. It means challenging our fans to represent our school and themselves for their behavior.
SUCCESS is a large word with great implications. Student-athletes at FOFCA should expect to be challenged both physically and spiritually because we want to see all of our student-athletes exhibit SUCCESS in their lives after high school.
