The DBU Athletic staff is dedicated to developing student-athletes into Champions for Christ, both on and off the field. Our coaches are intentional about recruiting and discipling student-athletes of strong Christian character and background. Each intercollegiate athletic team has weekly team Bible studies, as well as small group discipleship led by upperclassmen.

At DBU, student-athletes have the opportunity to grow in their faith as well as reach their highest athletic potential. Student-athletes from across the nation and around the world are drawn to DBU for its academic excellence and quality athletic programs. From mentoring and discipleship opportunities to dynamic integration of faith in the classroom and service in the community, DBU student-athletes are encouraged to deepen their walk with Christ and to serve as Christian leaders.

The Dallas Baptist University Patriot Athletic Department is actively involved in the Global Sports Mission Initiative to allow DBU student-athletes the opportunity to share the love of Christ, while using their God-given athletic talents and gifts to minister and spread the Word of God abroad. The Global Sports Mission Initiative has included trips to Guatemala, Peru, South Korea, England, Brazil, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Chile, China, Scotland, Israel, and Curacao.
