Love God. Love the game.
At Great Lakes we strive to be loving, gracious, and humble while competing to the best of our ability to win the game.
At Great Lakes, our mission is prepare students to be effective servant-leaders in the church and the world, and we believe that athletics plays a huge part in that mission. We compete hard, and we compete to win, and we thank God for the opportunity to compete. We believe that our highest calling is to be effective witnesses of the Kingdom of God, and that we can accomplish this by displaying the Kingdom on the pitch and the hardwood in our competitiveness, our athleticism, our passion, and in the love we show for the game and for our teammates, coaches, opponents, spectators, and officials.
Our community is made stronger by our competitiveness and our passion.
We believe that our college Kingdom community is made stronger by uniting in competition, on the field and off the field. Our student section shows up early, stays late, and makes a lot of noise in-between. Our on-campus community shares in both victory and defeat, and our athletes will always have the support in the stands of their friends and peers in the blue and white.
We are Great Lakes.
From the opening whistle to the final horn, the Lakes will always strive to win while honouring God and advancing the Kingdom, and we invite you to join us this season for all of the action in soccer, basketball, and volleyball.
