January 30, 2023

Tim Tebow, two-time national champion, Heisman Trophy winner, first-round NFL draft pick and former professional baseball player, will be the keynote speaker at Oklahoma Baptist University’s annual Green and Gold Gala on March 28, 2023, at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. The annual event raises funds for student scholarships at OBU.

A five-time New York Times best-selling author, speaker, and football analyst, Tebow is most passionate about his work with the Tim Tebow Foundation, whose mission is to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. The foundation is currently fighting for people who can’t fight for themselves in more than 70 countries through its primary ministry focuses and initiatives.

Tickets are now on sale. Those interested in attending the event are encouraged to purchase tickets quickly as seating is based on sponsorship level and purchase date. Sponsorship and corporate tables are available in addition to individual tickets. Cost for an individual ticket to the Gala is $150, which includes dinner. Of that price, $75 will be directed toward student scholarships as a tax-deductible gift to OBU.

Born in the Philippines in 1987, Tebow developed a strong passion for serving people and sharing God’s word after spending his early years working at his father’s ministry orphanage.

Shortly after his family returned to the states, Tebow began his football career in Pop Warner at Lakeshore Athletic Association in his hometown of Jacksonville, Fla. During this time, his parents instilled in him the importance of keeping God, family and service to others first.

Tebow went on to play high school football at Nease High School where he led his team to a state title his senior year, was twice named Florida’s Player of the Year, earned All-State honors and was named Florida’s Mr. Football. He continued his outreach by frequently visiting the Philippines to share the gospel and God’s love with children.

His success continued throughout his college career at the University of Florida where he won two NCAA National Championship titles and was the first-ever sophomore to win the Heisman. He became well known for his Bible verse eye black and his spring break trips to the Philippine orphanage. He also worked with UF Student Government to begin the 1st and 15 program to benefit children with cancer.

He was drafted in 2010 by the Denver Broncos and immediately began the Tim Tebow Foundation. He remains committed to his foundation through his time, talent and treasure because he firmly believes that leaving a legacy is not about trophies and wins, but about bringing faith, hope and love to others.
