Chicago football, christian academy, christian academy football

Football is a vehicle that has amazing potential to transform boys into the men that God designed them to be.  Ultimately, we are put on this earth to glorify God in all that we do. The goal of the Hope football program is no different.  We are committed to using our talents and gifts as football players and coaches to bring glory to His name. Whether that be through pain or joy, growing closer to Christ is the goal.

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”  

–  1 Corinthians 16:13 –
