We are striving >

Our athletic ministry has a multi-faceted goal of developing participants physically, mentally, and spiritually.

While we are striving to be successful in the sports that we play, our ultimate goal is to refine each other as we become individuals who strive for the mastery in every area of our lives to please our Lord Jesus Christ.

Alonzo Burton

Strive Athletics director

We desire to develop individuals by refining one another through teamwork, strengthening and supporting our physical bodies, and growing leadership qualities as we enjoy the camaraderie that comes with being a part of a team.

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1 Corinthians 9:24-26
