Warrior Athletics Mission

Glorify God. Disciple Students. Pursue Excellence.

GCA athletic teams are grounded in the mission to glorify God through discipling students in a competitive atmosphere with the Bible as the foundation and Jesus Christ as our focus. This mission is at the core of what drives our programs. Coaches and players to pursue athletics in a way that is distinctive and brings honor to Jesus Christ.

Athletic Department theme verse: Hebrews 12:1

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
