In April, Tim Tebow will join the likes of former President George Bush and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
The NFL quarterback will be the keynote speaker at Plumstead Christian School's Founders Forum.
Patrick Fitzpatrick, Plumstead Christian's Head of School, said the school and its community are honored that Tebow accepted their invitation to visit Bucks County.
The athlete's message is sure to resonate with Plumstead Christian's supporters.
"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," Fitzpatrick said in a statement.
"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."
Homeschooled by Christian missionary parents, Tebow played football at a public high school in Florida before taking his throwing arm to the Florida Gators. In 2007, as a sophomore, he won the Heisman Trophy. In 2010, he was drafted by the Denver Broncos; today, he plays for the New York Jets.
Even as a college student, Tebow used his popularity to lend weight to fundraising for such charities as an orphanage in the Phillipines and a hospital in Florida. In 2010, he launched the Tim Tebow Foundation, the mission of which "is to use the platform that God has given to Tim to fulfill the Foundation’s mission of bringing Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need."
Tebow's visit to Bucks County will include two events during the evening, which will be held on Mon, April 15, 2013 at Calvary Church on Rt. 113 in Hilltown Township (Souderton GPS and mailing address.)
Tickets for a dinner catered by Peddlers Village restaurans are $200. That event also will include a 25-minute question-and-answer session with Tebow.
After dinner, Tebow will host a lengthier presentation; tickets to that event range from $50 to $175.
Tickets for both events may be purchased online at pcs.thundertix.com.
