Chattanooga Christian School announced the hiring of David Conrady to replace Jim Arnold as the high school boys’ varsity basketball coach.  

Coach Conrady currently serves as the national basketball director for SCORE International.  For 30 years, SCORE "has partnered with athletes, coaches, and anyone with a heart to serve using their gifts, talents, and abilities to share the life-changing message of Jesus through short-term mission trips."  Prior to coming on staff with SCORE, he spent 23 years coaching basketball at the collegiate level, most recently as the associate head coach at UT Chattanooga. During his six seasons at UTC, Conrady was a part of three Southern Conference North Division Championships, two Southern Conference Tournament Championships, and two NCAA Tournament appearances.

Conrady brings nine years of head coaching experience at the NCAA DII level at North Greenville University and Newberry College. He was charged with taking North Greenville University from junior college to NAIA and then into the NCAA DII level. While at North Greenville, his teams defeated several nationally ranked teams including the #1 and #2 ranked teams. During his final season at NGU, his team finished 4th in the country at the NCAA National Tournament. Conrady spent two years at Newberry College. In his second year, the Indians made it to the South Atlantic Conference Tournament final, the only time in school history. The 16 wins that season were the most Newberry had posted for almost 20 years.

Coach Conrady has the distinction of participating in the National Tournament at every level he has coached, CCS officials said.

A graduate of Furman University, Conrady was a three-year captain as a point guard for the Paladins basketball team. He was voted to the All-Freshman Team and set the school record for assists in a single game.

Coach Conrady said, “As the National Basketball Director with SCORE, I have been blessed to engage athletes on our life-changing trips. I could not be more excited to be able to lead the CCS boys’ basketball team. This is a perfect fit for my ministry. I am excited to be able to teach a game I love, teach the biblical life lessons found in sport, and to continue to introduce the concept of servant leadership through engaging coaches and athletes on SCORE trips. CCS is a special place that provides their students with a biblically-based education that is second to none."

Don't Squander The 2016 Election Opportunity

This is what I don't understand. Christians refusing to vote for anyone who is not squeaky clean and who doesn't live up to our standards. I'm not bashing Christians. I proudly proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior.  But If we made our voice known more we could have a lot greater influence than we have. And I don't mean just boycotting. I specifically mean the last two ... (click for more)
