Vertical Purpose

At Redeemer, it鈥檚 more than just a game. It鈥檚 community. It鈥檚 holistic development. It鈥檚 all for a Vertical Purpose. 

Our mission is to train Christian athletes to become champions for Christ by placing the highest values on faith, influence, teamwork, and excellence.聽

We strive to see Royals that display their identity in Christ and are empowered to pursue athletic excellence from a desire to honour and glorify His name above all. This is the starting point for what it means to compete in a varsity program as a 小猪视频Royal.聽

Developing the Whole Person

小猪视频focuses on the holistic development of a student-athlete. We are committed to providing a Christ-centered championship experience to enhance holistic athletic excellence and maximize the great potential of our students. We seek to develop Royals who impact the world in which they live, work, and compete so that the Kingdom is advanced, Christ is honoured, and the Gospel is spread.

In Athletics, our core verse which guides and provides a foundation for all we do comes from Romans 12:1:

鈥淭herefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.鈥

Romans 12:1

Taking the bodies, abilities, and gifts that we have been given and living in a manner that honours God is our spiritual service of worship. This is how we seek to live day-by-day in 小猪视频Athletics. 

“By embracing the integration of faith and sport, 小猪视频athletics has not only enhanced my skills, but also challenged me to become a better person, athlete, and Christian. This transformation is something I鈥檓 excited to bring into my future endeavors!” 

Carlene Cecchelli – 小猪视频Royals Women鈥檚 Volleyball, Class of 2025

鈥淢y involvement with 小猪视频Athletics enabled me to view my sport as an act of worship. Being surrounded by like-minded individuals with a love for Christ encouraged me to use my gifts to glorify God through sport鈥

What makes athletics at 小猪视频different?

小猪视频student-athletes put in the time and the effort for their teammates, for their families, but most importantly, they are using their gifts and abilities to glorify God. When this is at the center of how you train and compete, the wins are that much sweeter because of the individual you are developing into. Wherever you play your post-secondary career, the wins will likely come in some form or another. But for 小猪视频student-athletes, it is much more than just the wins because it is about much more than just the game.

Hear from Athletic Director James Kryger and MVB/MHKY Alumni Isaiah Thornback as they describe what being a student-athlete at 小猪视频is all about on this episode of the 小猪视频 Podcast.
