Tim Tebow, who won countless Carolinas fans while playing baseball for the Columbia Fireflies, is scheduled to appear at Bob Jones University in March to talk about his penchant for mixing professional sports and Christianity.
The March 15 event is being billed as “An Evening with Tim Tewbow” and the former NFL quarterback will discuss not only how he has used sports “as a platform for Christ,” but also how it has impacted his career.
“Throughout his life, Tebow has used the platform of sports to bring God glory,” said a statement from said Bruins Director of Athletics Neal Ring. “That’s what our intercollegiate athletics program is all about at BJU.”
Tebow was a first round NFL draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner. He is currently professional baseball player with the New York Mets organization.
His stint last year with the Columbia Fireflies included a four-game series in Hickory, playing the Hickory Crawdads.
