NCS Varsity Football

Thank You For Watching Your Northwest Christian Crusaders Compete!

God has been very good to the Northwest Christian football program. We strive to take every win and every loss with class and first give all the glory to God for giving us a chance to play in the game and for giving us a chance to represent Him on the playing field. There isn’t anything better than coming to watch a home game at Northwest Christian. It is an awesome atmosphere for sports and allows you to spend time with your Christian brothers and sisters.

Northwest Christian Crusaders had a fantastic season and was blessed by all of the fan stats


Play hard, and play fair and follow Proverbs 27:17 which says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." We will compete to win when we step on the field but do it in such a way as to bring glory to God and admiration to Northwest Christian School. LET'S ROLL
