core values

exemplifying christ

Rooted in our mission and statement of faith, we participate in athletic competitions to exemplify Christ and do everything "for His glory."  To achieve this our families, coaches, directors and other leaders involved with EVAC aim to act and speak in such a way that brings glory to God and inspire our student-athletes to do the same.  The values of teamwork, sportsmanship, humility, respect, encouragement, enthusiasm, and friendship can be applied on and off the field or court.

building community

We desire a strong sense of community among student-athletes, coaches, mentors, and families, recognizing the profound impact of genuine relationships on character and faith. Our hope is that EVAC is a place where lifelong friendships are formed.

joyful volunteers

We seek volunteers who joyfully serve the Lord, instilling a culture where volunteering is a blessing to those being served and for those who serve. Volunteering is not only a requirement but also a privilege to be cherished.  Our volunteer coaches are a special blessing and are a cornerstone to the organization.

balanced approach

We embrace the tension of competition with a balanced approach that honors both competitiveness and relationships. We pursue excellence and compete at a high level with integrity, humility, and respect, rooted in love.

sustainable decisions

We're dedicated to ensuring our organization thrives for future generations by responsibly managing sports, teams, coaches, and athlete numbers. Through carefully crafted processes and procedures, we aim to promote sustainable and intentional growth within defined limits, inspiring other communities to emulate our model and establish similar organizations

statement of faith

II Timothy 3:16-17
II Peter 1:20-21

We believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God and that it is our final authority in all matters.

Matthew 26:19
I Corinthians 8:6

We believe God is a person, eternally existing as the Trinity in unity – Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit – three persons, one God.

Luke 1:30-55
John 1:1-15

We believe in Jesus’ virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and atoning death through His shed blood and His bodily resurrection.

Genesis 2:16
Genesis 3:16-19
Romans 5:12
Romans 3:10-23
Romans 6:23

We believe man was created in the image of God; but fell into separation from God through sin, bringing death to all men.

Genesis 1:26-27

We believe that God creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.

Genesis 2:24

We believe God ordained marriage to be the union of one man and one woman.

Ephesians 2:8-9 – Acts 16:31

We believe salvation is a free gift from God for “whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord.” It is by the grace of God, through faith, not any works of any man. Salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ and His finished work.

code of conduct

We believe that athletic competition should demonstrate high ethics and sportsmanship and promote the development of practical biblical character and life skills. We believe that the highest potential of sports is achieved when each player is committed to pursuing victory with honor through biblical character. This code applies to all student-athletes and parents. These qualities include but are not limited to integrity, honesty, reliability, loyalty, respect for others, self-control, and encouragement toward all teammates, coaches, parents, officials, opposing teams, and others. Students and parents who continuously conduct themselves in a way that reflects negatively on the team or organization could be dismissed from participating. Violations of the EVAC Code of Conduct will be judged and managed by the person most directly in the line of authority to the violator. Coaches and parents are the authority in situations that involve players. Situations that are especially egregious or that are brought to the attention of the EVAC Board of Directors by an EVAC member will be judged and managed by the Board of Directors.
