Lowitzki Recognized for Dedication to Character Building

News Jan. 28, 2020

More than just running and scoring for a team, athletics programs work to develop spiritual and moral characteristics. A prime example of this is Cornerstone University’s baseball program headed by Chuck Lowitzki (M.S. ’15).

Lowitzki received the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) Coach of Character award for the 2018-19 academic year. The award is given to a coach who has shown a commitment to building character and culture with their teams.

“Coaching is about so much more than baseball to Coach Chuck,” said Jared Riley, a member of the baseball team. “The way he coaches and everything we do is done with the purpose of growing us as men of God. He’s taught us gratitude for all we’ve been blessed with as a team. He’s showed us the value of being a servant to each other and those in need. And he’s helped grow a true brotherhood among us as teammates, which you don’t get on every team you are a part of. I think it’s safe to say he has changed all of our lives in one way or another, and we’re very blessed to have him as a coach.”

Lowitzki is currently serving his eighth year in the baseball program. In his time at CU, he has worked to build authentic godly men to serve others on and off the field by providing value beyond what other programs provide. “When we do things outside of baseball, we try to look through that lens. We can’t just talk about that, but we need to model it as a coaching staff as well,” Lowitzki said.

Going into the spring season, Lowitzki hopes to get mistakes out of the way early. They currently have a younger team and want to help them understand the college game.

They will also work toward spiritual and moral development. The program presents a unique platform to teach lessons, and coaches hope to use it to instill foundational case studies their teams can look back on after college. They hold Bible studies, prayer groups, mission trips and work with local high schools. Baseball coaches recognize that their team spends many hours together, so they aim to steward that time well.

“We don’t coach to get awards,” Lowitzki said. “It’s more of a statement about the young men in our program. They make choices and live a certain way that reflects some of the lessons that we teach.”
