The 2013 Wildfire “Men’s Impact Weekend” Conference is set to pack out the Liberty University Vines Center with 10,000 guys in just a few short months. National Football League icon Tim Tebow of the New York Jets has just been confirmed as the headliner for the March 8-9, 2013 event.
Tebow will be sharing his personal testimony of faith on Friday evening at the conference. He Tebow won two college football national championships at the University of Florida, was a first-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, and led the Denver Broncos to the 2011 NFL Playoffs for the first time in six years.
He lives a life that consistently reflects his values and founded the Tim Tebow Foundation, which partners with CURE International to build hospitals in the Philippines. Tebow was also named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2012.
While Tebow sees football as a platform for greater good, it's clear that the public’s fascination with him spreads far beyond the gridiron. He has over 2 million Facebook subscribers and 2 million Twitter followers, and his New York Times best-selling memoir Through My Eyes was named the No. 1 sports book of 2011.
Joining Tebow and Wildfire founder Tim Clinton, is a stellar lineup of some of America’s premiere athletes, outdoorsmen, Bible teachers and speakers, including John Smoltz, legendary pitcher for the Atlanta Braves; Willie Robertson, star of the hit reality TV show, Duck Dynasty; Joe White, President and founder of Kanakuk Kamps; Rick Rigsby, a dynamic motivational and leadership speaker; and more.
The annual gathering also will feature inspirational praise and worship with Michael O’Brien and the Wildfire Worship Band. Attendees can expect a two-day event packed full of workshops, exhibits and fun around the stuff that men love—hunting, fishing, motorcycles, racing, athletics, extreme sports and other outdoor activities—taught by some of the leading experts in the world.
Wildfire is partnering with Pastor Jonathan Falwell from Thomas Road Baptist Church, Spirit FM, Liberty University and the Southern Baptist Convention of Virginia to bring this stellar event to Central Virginia.
“Wildfire is designed to help men draw closer to the heart of God and become better fathers, husbands, sons and leaders,” Clinton said. “Our 2013 program will bring together thousands of men—many with their sons—to hear real-life testimonies of faith, to worship together, and be challenged to live the life of true adventure that God created us for.
“Guys, think road trip. Bring your dad, son, brother, friend, hunting buddy, or a group from your church or work and get to Central Virginia. Don’t miss this one!”
