MLB '17

The Florida Marlins are hosting the 2017 Major League All-Star Celebration Saturday, July 8 – Tuesday, July 11.  The games are played at Marlins Park and the daily FanFest is held at the   Miami Beach Convention Center.

SFOI is looking for eleven men who believe they are called to evangelistic work or who have a passion for souls to hear the Gospel to spend four days proclaiming the Gospel to the MLB All-Star fans whether they are coming and going from the FanFest, Marlins Park, South Beach or another location in Miami.

The team will stay in the same house from Saturday – Wednesday morning; there’ll be an hour of prayer each morning including an hour of devotions led by a local Pastor or Professor;  we’ll travel together to and from the ministry location(s) for the day and we’ll operate in two teams of six once we arrive at the ministry location.

The daily schedule is below.

To give you an idea of the ministry at work you can look at these pictures from last year in San Diego, MLB ’16, and Cincinnati in ’15: MLB ’15.

If you have a desire to spend four days fellowshipping and laboring with other evangelists so the MLB All-Star fans can hear the Gospel and be provided the opportunity to respond then plan to join us today.  The details are below including the link to take you to the registration page.

Accommodations: 1428 Southwest 11th Terrace Unit A, Miami, FL 33135.

Airport pick up: You will be picked up at the airport if you fly into Miami. Simply email your itinerary to Hannah at: info@sfoi.org

Meals: Meals are not provided in the cost. However since the accommodations are a home there is a kitchen. You can bring food, drinks and snacks and keep them in the kitchen.  What typically happens is that everyone rises early for prayer and during that early morning time everyone eats breakfast. Lunch is eaten at the ministry location at a nearby restaurant and dinner is back at the house.  The benefit to this plan is you can eat what you like when you want.

Speakers (three total): Pastor Nathan Parker, Pinelands Presbyterian Church.

Costs: $199. Includes accommodations and transportation. Make payments here: MLB All-Star Payments.

Registration Information: This event is for men only. Limited to twelve total.

Next Step: Register by clicking on the SFOI logo below. Once you register and are approved you will receive further information including but not limited to an event waiver and payment information. You will also be asked to submit a bio and picture to be posted on the event pages.

Ministry Team

Bill Adams – Atlanta, GA

Bill Adams was raised in the church, Baptist and Methodist, and has never in his life not known of or considered God in his life. In 1988 upon graduation from Belmont University’s Masters in Business program the Lord personally entered Bill’s life and called Bill to follow Him. That began a 29 year journey of following Jesus Christ and growing in the grace and knowledge of Him.

In 1995 the Lord called Bill to begin to go into the highways and hedges to preach the Word and in 2000 Bill became a full-time evangelist.

In the early years Bill preached at seemingly every concert, sporting event, parade and festival in Atlanta and simultaneously the Lord led him to travel to major sporting events like the Super Bowl, Final Four and Olympics to preach.

In 2007 Sports Fan Outreach [SFOI] was born as an effort to bring more Saints with him to preach at these sporting events and now through the SFOI George Whitefield program Bill is seeking men who believed they are called into full-time evangelism to join him to saturate the Western World with the Gospel.

Over the years millions of souls throughout the Western World have heard the Word through Bill’s preaching and the great delight of his life is knowing and preaching Jesus Christ crucified.

Bill is married and has four children. He is a commissioned evangelist of the Diocese of the Central States of the Reformed Episcopal Church, is a member of Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, GA and is presently enrolled in the Masters of Theology program at Union School of Theology [UST]. You can read Bill’s frequent theological thoughts at his blog: Bill Adams’ Theological Writings – View from an Evangelist.
