“We are honored that Tim Tebow will be coming to Bucks County to speak with our students and the larger Plumstead Christian School community,” said PCS Head of School Patrick Fitzpatrick. “Tebow’s commitment to Christ and his compassion for children who are hurting, as demonstrated through the Tim Tebow Foundation, mirrors our own mission to teach students to think biblically, serve effectively, and lead Christ-centered lives. I am confident that his message of faith, family, and football will challenge and inspire our community just as the way he lives his life on and off the field has been an inspiration to millions.” Tim Tebow will be the first professional athlete to speak at Plumstead Christian School’s Founders Forum.
