SCHOOL of HEALTH and SPORTS SCIENCE


The School of Health and Sports Science’s mission is to develop and prepare individuals to be future leaders in a variety of health and sport science professions by incorporating a biblical foundation with emphasis on glorifying God by following the principles of 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?  You are not your own, for you were bought with a price.  So glorify God with your body.  1 Corinthians 6:19-20
