At Northstar Christian Academy we are focused on 3 pillars. These pillars include athletic excellence, academic achievement, and spiritual growth.

Spiritual Growth

Our spiritual growth pillar is a major differentiator for us and it has a tremendous impact on our program’s culture.  Like our other 2 pillars, we focus on spiritual development every day through a variety of activities. We like to tell our visitors that in the weight room we work on our muscles. In the classroom, we work on our brains, on the ice we work on our lungs, and in the Chapel, we work on our hearts. This “heart” work gives us an advantage over other teams and allows our players to grow deeper in their relationships with each other, our staff, and most importantly their relationship with Jesus Christ.

It is this spiritual development pillar that allows our players to break the chains and strongholds in their life and free them to become the best teammates, players, and ultimately become the best version of themselves. Below are a few activities that allow us to connect at the heart level with our players.

Spiritual Development Activities

  • Defining and teaching our players what it means to be a Godly Man. By using the “10 Traits of a Godly Man” curriculum, we are able to provide each player a strong foundation built on biblical principles to guide them moving forward in life.
  • Teaching and living the Core Values of Northstar as well as working with them on what it means to be a Northstar Knight.
  • Daily devotionals by players
