Morning Worship 10:45AM Evening Worship 6PM
Sunday, April 29th at 10:45am our Fighting for the Family series will culminate as Chris Reis comes to speak at CFBC! We would like to invite you to hear Chris share his heart and his life with you.
Chris Reis is a loyal follower of Christ, devoted husband and father, pastor, Super Bowl champion, NFL player, author, and lifelong athlete. He is best known for his historic, game-changing play made during Super Bowl XLIV, and ultimately helping to lead his then team, the New Orleans Saints, to victory. As the first onside kick recovered before the fourth quarter during a Super Bowl game, NFL.com named Chris’ play one of the “top 10 greatest Super Bowl plays of the decade”.
Chris is a graduate of Georgia Tech, where he was the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes throughout his entire college experience. It was here that Chris met his wife, Michelle. It was also within these walls of fellowship that Chris’ father Mike felt his own calling to surrender his life to Christ.
In 2012, Chris and his father, Mike, published a tell-all book titled Recovery of a Lifetime: The Inspirational Journey of a Super Bowl Hero Son and His Father's Battle Against Multiple Addictions. This father-and-son book unpacks the dynamics of family relationships and tells a redeeming story of faith, hope, restoration, and recovery. Today Chris works at Our Savior’s Church in Lafayette, Louisiana where he is the Young Adult and Student Pastor. Chris travels the country speaking to men’s groups, churches and religious organizations, youth groups and corporations, inspiring others by sharing his story of living a faith-based lifestyle in an egocentric culture. His “Live for More” motto inspires many who may find trusting God in today’s culture to be more and more daunting.
We hope that you will make plans to be here on April 29th!
