Athletes Chapel is an opportunity for student athletes to continue to go deeper spiritually and in community with their fellow athletes from all sports. This student led group, along with staff supervision, as well as partnerships with FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and AIA (Athletes in Action) wants to reach ALL athletes for Christ. Since we have so many athletes on our campus, where some will continue playing in college and some may not, our hope is that by having a relationship and connection with these organizations, they are more inclined to join these upon arriving in college. So whether you bike, swim, dance, row, flip, own any type of “tennis shoe” you are athlete enough for us!
