The inaugural CBU/FCA Inland Empire Night of Champions is Saturday March 23, 2013, in the Van Dyne Gym on the campus of California Baptist University from 6-8 p.m. It is designed to bring God's life-saving message to junior high and high school students and is a perfect place for non-Christian teenagers to be exposed to the Gospel through guest speakers close to professional sports.
Guest speakers include three-time U.S. Softball Olympic Gold Medalist Leah O'Brien and Ken Johnson, nationally-renowned speaker and chaplain of the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL.
"Our athletic department's mission is to honor Christ through excellence in athletics, and we are excited to partner with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes on this exciting event," said CBU Director of Athletics Dr. Micah Parker. "Our goal is to reach as many junior high and high school students with the Gospel through this evening. We've got two excellent speakers and a great band that students will enjoy. I would encourage all coaches and youth leaders in the Inland Empire to go to the web-site and sign up."
In addition to the guest speakers sharing personal testimonies, attendees will be entertained with live music, receive dinner provided by Chick-fil-A and be given an FCA Athletes Bible to take home. Admission is $10 and includes guest speakers and entertainment. The Chick-fil-A and an FCA Athletes' Bible are limited to the first 500 registrants.
