Dear Prospective Student-Athlete,

I am excited to announce the startup of our Athletic Department with four intercollegiate sports this Fall 2017.   With the merge of Nebraska Christian College and Hope International University this last summer, we have come to a pivotal and historical point for our NC campus as we partner with HIU to lead both institutions into the future for Christian Higher Education. 

We are in the process of actively recruiting Christian student-athletes for our four sports: Women’s Soccer, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Basketball, and Men’s Basketball. We are pursuing membership in the NCCAA Division I-Central Region with a goal to also compete in the NAIA. This is the first time in NCC history that the school is offering athletic scholarships to student-athletes. 

Our vision is to find students that have a desire and passion for spiritual growth, academic excellence, and athletic achievement. We want to build a competitive athletic program but also continue to holistically (spiritually, intellectually, and physically) nourish any student that comes to NCC as they prepare for their field of study.

If you are interested in learning more about each of our Athletic Programs, please fill out the Recruitment Form below or contact me for more information.

Men's Basketball Coach

the latest from ncc athletics

PAPILLION, NE :: As the culmination of a thorough and strategic process, the Nebraska Christian College (NCC) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics proudly unveils its new mascot and logos. After soliciting input from various constituents within the NCC community, SENTINELS was chosen from a wide-ranging list of suggestions.

Defined as a guardian or protector, SENTINELS represents the culture and ethos of NCC well. Synonyms include: lookout, sentry, defender, watchman, and gatekeeper.

New logos have been developed and adopted to represent NCC athletics teams and program, both on and off the field of play. The SENTINELS icon depicts the front view of a sentry’s helmet. The cross that prominently adorns the helmet represents NCC’s Christian roots, heritage, and belief system. It is identical to the cross element used in the institutional logo of Hope International University who merged with NCC in 2016. The shape of the opening in the face of the helmet depicts a person engaged in worship at the foot of the cross, arms raised in praise and adoration.

NCC recently announced the return of athletics beginning the Fall of 2017. NCC initially will offer four intercollegiate sports: women’s soccer, men’s soccer, women’s basketball, and men’s basketball. NCC is now a member of the NCCAA Division 1 Central Region with a future goal to also compete in the NAIA. This will be the first time in NCC history that the school will be offering athletic scholarships to student athletes.

NCC’s vision is to build a competitive athletic program while continuing to nourish the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical development of all students as they prepare for their respective vocation.
