CIU athlete lives transformed at 2021 Leadership Retreat

Athletes and coaches worship in song at the retreat
August 19, 2021

The CIU Athletic Department took a break from their usual preseason activities to gear up for the 2021-2022 academic year with the first-ever CIU combined athletic and leadership weekend retreat in Brevard, North Carolina. Joining the Rams' athletes were student leaders including Residence Life and the Student Government Association (SGA). Gospel messages were presented by CIU’s Athletics Chaplain Adrian Despres, a CIU alumnus.

Before heading north of the border, the athletes attended a Columbia Fireflies minor league baseball game where the CIU Rams baseball team was honored for their National Christian College Athletic Association championship last spring. The “Faith and Family Night” at the ballpark was sponsored by CIU.
