Football star, commentator and philanthropist Tim Tebow will be a special guest at The Orchard’s two Sunday morning services on November 8.
Tebow will be on campus covering the Ole Miss-Arkansas game on Saturday for SEC Nation and will stick around for a Sunday in Oxford. At the Orchard, he’ll speak on his faith, football and his work with the Tim Tebow Foundation, among other things.
“We are really excited about Tim coming to share with us,” says Pat Ward, lead pastor at The Orchard. “We are in the middle of a series of sermons on Generosity from 1 Timothy 6 and thought he would be a great voice to add to the conversation.”
The Orchard occasionally hosts special guests in a conversational format.
“It creates a fun interaction and allows us to talk about a wide range of topics,” says Ward. “I also think it allows for us to dig a little deeper into a person’s story and into their walk with Jesus.”
A few years ago, they had a visit from Oxford Mayor Pat Patterson and last year they hosted a conversation with Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones.
The Orchard meets at 295 HWY 7 North in Oxford. Tebow will be interviewed at both the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services that morning. The Orchard has kids ministry available during both services on Sunday.
“We are looking forward to hosting anyone who wants to come and hear Tim speak,” says Ward. “Space will be limited so plan on arriving early, especially if you are checking your kids into our kids ministry.”
