WASHINGTON – Speaking to thousands of Christians gathered on the National Mall Saturday, Christian football star Tim Tebow said Christians can change their communities and neighborhoods simply by loving "every person they come in contact with" and by loving Jesus Christ.
Tebow, a college football analyst, missionary and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at the University of Florida, was invited to speak at the Together 2016 gathering organized by Pulse and its founder Nick Hall, who were expecting as many as 1 million people to attend.
Tebow, who opened a hospital in his native Philippines to serve the orthopedic needs of children not fortunate enough to afford treatments and simple procedures, challenged the thousands in attendance to show love to others that Jesus has shown to them. more >>
Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow prayed with passengers on a Delta flight after someone suffered a heart attack mid-flight. Tebow clinged to the victim's family as they cried and prayed for a miracle.
The "Home Free" host was on a Delta flight headed to Phoenix from Atlanta last week when an older man on board suffered a heart attack and fell unconscious. The Delta crew reportedly sprung into action and a physician's assistant named Nicki Freeze started administering CPR.
Several eye witness accounts on social media said fellow passengers had gathered around the family before Tebow eventually noticed something was wrong and left his seat in first class to help. The former NY Jets player offered support the best way he knew how, in prayer. In a photo posted by another passenger on board, Tebow is seen leaning over and hugging the stricken man's wife as he prayed with her and her friend. more >>
