Patrick Estepp is beginning his 20th season of coaching college basketball at Cedarville University (NCAA Division II) in Cedarville, Ohio. His school is part of both the NCAA and the NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association).
In 2019, Coach Estepp was named the NCCAA National Coach of the Year after helping lead his team to the NCCAA National Championship. He was named head coach of the team in 2008 and was a graduate of Cedarville in 1997.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Coach Estepp about his team’s motto of “fearing one,” preparing for the 2019-20 season, his testimony of faith in Christ, how he stays connected to God during a long season, and the challenges in coaching at a Christian organization.
