Servant Leaders on the Soccer Field

One of our institutional priorities has been to grow enrollment through programs that fit with our mission. One way to do that is to add men’s and women’s soccer to our athletic program.

Joshua Miller began his tenure in early July as head men’s and women’s soccer coach. Miller has over a decade of experience as a coach at the collegiate level, most recently in stints as an assistant coach at Malone University, an NCAA Division II program in Canton, Ohio, and as the Director of Soccer and Head Women’s Soccer Coach at Bluefield College, an NAIA program in Bluefield, Virginia.

He holds a United Soccer Coaches (USC) National Diploma, a USSF “D” License, a USC Goalkeeping Level 3 Diploma, and seven special topic diplomas through USC. Additionally, he has coached eight all-Americans and 24 scholar athletes.

Miller graduated from Cincinnati Christian University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Youth Ministry. Upon graduation, Miller was the head men’s soccer coach in the 2007 and 2008 seasons. During his time at Cincinnati Christian, he helped the program transition from NCCAA Division II to the NAIA.

Miller coached soccer from 2010 to 2015 at Kentucky Christian University, an NCCAA Division II program in Grayson, KY, where he was the head women’s coach for six seasons and the assistant men’s coach for four seasons. While at Kentucky Christian, Miller led his women’s team to four regional championships, four national tournament appearances, and was a three-time regional coach of the year. In addition to coaching, Miller served as the Director of Student Activities at Kentucky Christian from 2011-16.

Alex Miller, Joshua’s wife, also joined the CCCB team in early July as the Executive Assistant to Admissions. Originally from Vanceburg, Kentucky, she is a graduate of Kentucky Christian University with a Bachelor of Science in Universal and Biblical Studies. Previously, she worked in Student Development at Bluefield College and is very excited to be part of the admissions team at Central Christian College of the Bible.

Joshua and Alex both have servant-leader hearts and are already creating a soccer family culture on campus.
“Alex and I are very thankful and excited for the opportunity to serve at Central Christian College of the Bible,” Joshua said. “I look forward to developing a family and servant leadership culture within the programs that will provide an opportunity for our players to learn, grow, and be challenged.”

To refer a player for the men’s or women’s soccer team, contact Joshua Miller by email at joshuamiller@cccb.edu or by phone at 660-372-2491.

Competition for men’s and women’s soccer, as well as men’s and women’s cross country will begin in the Fall of 2020. The new programs will join men’s and women’s basketball, bringing the Saints back up to six intercollegiate sports.
