Mission and Vision
Golden Gryphon athletics will sanctify (set apart and prepare) student athletes for sacred roles in family, church, community, and workplace for the glory of God by:
- Exhibiting the splendor of God’s creative power evident in the unique capabilities of the human mind, body, and spirit. (Gen. 1:27) Athletic pursuits are a testament to man’s supremacy over all creation. The superiority of the mind, body, and spirit of man point to the Creator who made us in his own image.
- Developing and exhibiting a strong work ethic. (Col. 3:23-24) Athletes must learn to give every practice and game their best efforts as though working for God in their pursuits.
- Developing and exhibiting exceptional unity and teamwork. (1 Cor. 12:12, John 13:35) All players will learn to work together as a team, valuing the contributions of others and seeking to benefit the team rather than himself/herself.
- Developing and exhibiting self-control. (Gal. 5:22-23) Students will learn to be self-controlled in even the most heated competition.
- Loving the opponent. (Rom. 12:16, 17; Gal. 5:26; Eph. 4:29) Students will hold the opponent in higher esteem than themselves, seeking to promote peace, to look first to the needs of the opponent, and to speak only words that encourage him/her.
At Capstone, sporting events will be gatherings of God’s people for the purpose of worshiping Him through a joyful pursuit of excellence in skills, strategy, gameplay, teamwork, and sportsmanship. There will be a spirit of unity and mutual respect out of reverence for Christ. At home games, visiting teams, spectators, and referees will be welcomed with Christian hospitality and treated as honored guests. At away games, Capstone athletes, coaches, parents, and spectators will be ambassadors for Christ and Capstone, seeking to speak and act with gratitude and respect for the privilege of being hosted by the home team and its community.
Each season will be marked by intentional discipleship from the coach and parents to their student athletes. Traditions, habits, and rules that train the heart to have the disposition of Christ will be the expectation and practice of every coach and parent. Student athletes, coaches, families, and spectators will a mindset like Jesus, who does nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit but in humility considers others before himself. (Philippians 2)
The ethos (spirit) and telos (aim) of Golden Gryphon athletics will be a united, singular goal of knowing, becoming like, and celebrating Christ and his Gospel through the good gift of sport.
