FCA Hosting Tim Tebow As Keynote Speaker

HUNTSVILLE- The annual Power Leadership Training Conference as part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) will be held Aug. 4-5 with keynote guest speaker Tim Tebow. Tebow’s appearance will be held Aug. 4 in the arena of the Von Braun Center and admission is free.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Florida and former player in the National Football League turned TV sports commentator will deliver his keynote message of Christian Faith and how it affects every aspect of life to what is expected to be a packed house. His stop in Huntsville will come just 10 days prior to his 36th birthday.

Born in the Philippines to missionary parents Bob and Pam Tebow, the multi-talented athlete began playing football at a very young age and his family moved to the U.S. in 1991 when Tebow was a mere four years old. He led his high school to a State Championship and signed with the Florida Gators where he led his teams to two SEC Championships and the National Championship in both 2007 and 2008. It was during the 2007 season where he became the first sophomore to win the coveted Heisman Trophy.

Upon completing college, Tebow was drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos where he played for two seasons. He then played one season with the New York Jets while also signing with, but never playing for, both the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. Overall, in 37 games, he passed for 2,874 yards and 19 touchdowns and scampered for an additional 197 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground. From 2016-2020, he tried his luck at playing professional baseball signing with the New York Mets, but his stay never led him the Major League Baseball and he officially retired in 2021.

Tebow’s television work has included stints with ESPN and the SEC Network. He’s also a three-time New York Times best-selling author. He will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in December as part of the 2023 class inductees.

Tebow is a devoted Christian and married his longtime partner Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in Jan. 2020. The South African model was named Miss Universe in 2017. Tebow was once stated, “Never forget that in whatever you do, your main audience is God, not others.”

The two-day conference for the FCA is open to student-athletes from grades 6-12 and includes hotel accommodations. Registration must be made in advance and can be done so on-line at northalabamafca.org. The event will include conference speaker Dr. Jay Strack, a private concert starring KB and worship led North Point Worship. The only portion of the two-day conference that is free is the PTL Party featuring Tebow on Friday night, Aug. 4.

The Northeast Alabama chapter of the FCA has access to over 135,000 students in the five counties of North Alabama the organization serves. The FCA has 40-50 staff members who serve the numerous camps and special worship events with an annual budget of over $1-million. Partner donations are welcome.
