Appalachian Bible College Intercollegiate Athletic Philosophy
We are serious about godly character. We recognize that in our culture, sports play a large role in the
lives of people of all ages. Therefore, we want to offer a program to our students that will give them a great opportunity to use their
talents for Christ and to learn how to use athletics as a tool in their future ministries. We are aware that often athletics may become
very dominant in our lives and often too high of a priority. Therefore, we will seek to provide a program that is properly balanced with
our other responsibilities as servants of the Lord. We challenge all student athletes to use their talents for Christ and to always
strive to demonstrate godly character in difficult circumstances. We believe there is great value in the experiences that our student
athletes have while in competitive situations. We will strive to provide a quality program that will help our athletes mature in Christ.
The ministry opportunities woven throughout the athletic season begin in practice and are carried onto the courts and fields of competition for the
glory of God. Catch game summaries and updates on the Warriors Facebook page. Don't miss the excitement!
The Athletic Department of Appalachian Bible College is very proud to be a part of the NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association).
Our athletes must all qualify and uphold the standards and requirements of this organization.
The intercollegiate sports that Appalachian Bible College offers to their students are Men's Soccer, Ladies Volleyball, and Men & Women's
Basketball. Men's Soccer and Ladies Volleyball are participants in the NCCAA. Our Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams are presently
not involved in the association but they play many of our region NCCAA schools and other small Bible Colleges. Our men’s basketball
team is a participant in the Small Bible College National Tournament. We also have an intramural program for student involvement throughout the year.
