Athletic Ministries

The sports ministry at North Park helps student-athletes learn how to integrate their faith into their sport and every aspect of their lives. Our desire is to engage every student-athlete at North Park with the transforming power of the gospel so that you may:

  • Discover and develop a vibrant relationship with Jesus
  • Experience the power of the Holy Spirit in your life
  • Be inspired and equipped to work for justice and extend mercy as you reach out to those around them with the Gospel
  • Reach your full potential—not just as an athlete—but as a person who has a unique contribution to make to better our city and world

In partnership with the Athletic Department and University Ministries, Seminary students serve as team chaplains for our intercollegiate athletics teams. They lead team Bible studies, develop discipleship relationships with athletes, and provide spiritual counseling as needed.
