Athletics at Eastern Nazarene College has been an important part of the ENC experience for athletes and non-athletes for many decades. The sense of pride athletes feel when representing ENC coupled with the student body and extended community cheering for our teams, has added to the campus ethos. As we look at the present and into the future, it is our desire to continue to build on that strong foundation.


In our attempt to create competitive programs that enhance the college experience for all of our student-athletes, we are asked to stretch our resources further, even as the cost of operating intercollegiate athletics continues to rise. As a result, we are asking alumni and friends of ENC and ENC Athletics, to help support our efforts, increasing our ability to accomplish some lofty goals, such as the Turf Field Campaign and the Lahue Gymnasium Bleacher Project; both of which allow us to compete with the best in our conference and region, within NCAA Division III. If you would like to hear more about these opportunities, I would love to chat with you about what our vision is, as well as how you can support us as we reach towards these goals.


We recognize that many alumni and friends of ENC Athletics, would like the opportunity to partner with us by contributing funds directly to the department operations or to a specific sport of interest. If you would like to give to Athletics directly, the funds will be used for various enhancements of the facility and for new equipment in multiple areas, such as the training room, locker rooms, and workout rooms. Or if you prefer, you can give financial support directly to a sport of your choosing by selecting that sport in the menu, on our giving page.


I want to thank you in advance for your support of ENC Athletics. Although my time at ENC has been brief, I have been excited to meet and speak with many alumni and friends of athletics. Our staff is working diligently on behalf of our student-athletes and by extension, all individuals that follow what is happening at ENC. If you are interested in making a financial gift to aid our work in developing men and women as we strive to fulfill the Lord’s call on our lives, please click the button below to be directed to an online giving portal.


Please call or email me if you have any questions or want to share your stories about your time at ENC. I look forward to hearing from you!
