NFL quar­ter­back Tim Te­bow to speak at 2012-13 Founders Fo­rum

The Advance of Bucks County - - WORD ON THE STREET -

Tim Te­bow, phi­lan­thropist and NFL quar­ter­back, will be the key­note speaker at Plum­stead Chris­tian School’s an­nual Founders Fo­rum on Tues­day, April 15 on the cam­pus of Cal­vary Church in Soud­er­ton.

As a col­lege quar­ter­back, Tim Te­bow led the Univer­sity of Florida to two na­tional cham­pi­onships, earned a Heis­man Tro­phy, and was a first-round se­lec­tion in the 2010 NFL Draft. As a Den­ver Broncos quar­ter­back, Tim led the team to the 2011 NFL Play­offs for the first time in six years. Tim be­came a New vork Jets quar­ter­back at the start of the 2012 sea­son. Through his col­lege and pro­fes­sional ca­reer Tim has gar­nered the re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion of mil­lions of fans be­cause of his strong work ethic and his courage to share his Chris­tian faith openly. His 2011 mem­oir “Through My Eyes,” coau­thored with Nathan Whi­taker, spent twenty four weeks on the New vork Times best seller list and was both the #1 Sports Book of 2011 and the top sell­ing re­li­gion book of 2011.

“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. The school has a rich his­tory of at­tract­ing some of the na­tion’s most in­flu­en­tial Chris­tian voices in­clud­ing the 2012 Founders Fo­rum key­note speaker Pres­i­dent de­orge W. Bush. Past speak­ers also in­clude former Alaska dover­nor Sarah Palin, sice Pres­i­dent Dan nu­ayle, colum­nist and com­men­ta­tor Cal Thomas, au­thor and former mis­sion­ary Elis­a­beth El­liott, and Chris­tian leader and co-founder of the Mo­ral Ma­jor­ity, the late Jerry Fal­well.

Tim will ap­pear at two back to back events dur­ing the evening: a catered din­ner that be­gins at 5:30 p.m. where he will en­gage in a twenty five minute mod­er­ated ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion, and the main Founders Fo­rum be­gin­ning at T:40 p.m. where he will par­tic­i­pate in a forty minute mod­er­ated ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion. Both events will be held at Cal­vary Church in Soud­er­ton, Penn­syl­va­nia, and tick­ets for both events are avail­able at pcs. thun­der­tix.com. The din­ner and the main fo­rum will com­ple­ment each other – each pro­vid­ing unique ex­pe­ri­ences for those who would like to at­tend both. Tim will also par­tic­i­pate in a photo op­por­tu­nity for spon­sors of the event. Please di­rect all se­ri­ous in­quiries about re­main­ing avail­able cor­po­rate or in­di­vid­ual spon­sor­ships to Pa­trick Fitz­patrick at 215-T66-80T3 or at founder­s­fo­rum@ plum­stead­chris­tian.org.
