Coming soon on April 12-14, North Central will host its annual three-day relationship seminar. In years past, the seminar has primarily focused on dating relationships and friendships, but this year it will turn to loving fellow Christians. This focus came out of a sermon series on 1 John by Kenny Stokes, pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church, who will speak in chapel on Tuesday and Wednesday during the seminar.
After finishing with an 11-14 record in 2010, the North Central Rams softball season finished with something left to be desired for the players. Second year Head Coach Allison Murphy looks forward to definite all-around improvement, claiming a growth in abilities and a hunger to progress as a team as key factors for their improvement.
Dr. Richard Shaka recently announced that this spring semester is his last at North Central after teaching in the Bible and theology department for 14 years. Dr. Shaka taught several courses during his time at North Central, including hermeneutics, systematic theology I, II, III, and IV, New Testament theology, contemporary theology, and cross-cultural preaching and theology. He has also led many students on mission trips to South Africa, England, Uganda, Ivory Coast, and Sierra Leone.
Head Cross-Country and Track And Field Coach Trey Meadows has been part of the North Central family since his freshman year of college. He has become the person he is today because of the way his coaches molded him as an athlete.
The jobs are out there. Students just have to look hard. Jobs can be found all over the city and North Central students can find employment opportunities on campus, too. Payment would only be a few steps from the dormitories.
Ah—The smell of the freshly cut grass and people barbequing just soothes my nostrils. Springtime is upon us. The scent of life with flowers and trees blossoming, and the sounds of children playing gives me a boost of energy to be a new person.
Just as the sun begins to rise, running shoes round the corners of Elliot Park. It is a typical 5 a.m. practice for the track and field team consisting of sprints and intervals. The track and field team began its season this year with a smaller roster than previous seasons. Several former members did not return, and only a few new faces stepped up to fill in their shoes.
Come springtime something special begins all around the country. Anticipation and curiosity take over the hearts/minds of many and big decisions are made. No, I am not talking about spring break; I’m talking about SPRING TRAINING! For those of who have absolutely no idea what that is, get with it. I’m talking about the great American pastime—baseball.
