Dallas Cowboys Chaplain Jonathan Evans will speak at Tate Baptist Church in Corinth on Thursday evening.
The event, “Men’s Offense Night,” is for dads of any age and boys seventh grade and up.
It begins at 5:30 with games and hotdogs in the gym, followed by Evans speaking at 6:30. There is no charge.
The event will introduce boys and young men to a Biblical idea of manhood and challenge dads to demonstrate Biblical leadership.
“We named it ‘Men’s Offense Night’ not only because of football, but because our culture needs Biblical men being on the offensive, not retreating,” said Daniel Jones, student pastor at Tate Baptist. “Jonathan is a dynamic speaker that draws from his experience growing up in a family of believers and how it has shaped his life.”
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes gave Tate Baptist the opportunity to have Evans visit.
“Our boys and men are suffering in this current society,” Jones said. “Look at our government, churches, schools and families; strong Biblical male leadership is absent and its effects are widespread. Men are claiming to follow Jesus, but their decisions say something else. Jonathan’s message gives our young men and dads something new to consider.”
Evans is a former NFL fullback. He is the son of Pastor Tony Evans, and his brother, Anthony, was a contestant on NBC’s The Voice. Many women know his sister, a best selling author in women’s ministry, Priscilla Shirer.
