Bill Adams – Chattanooga, TN
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 called Bill to follow Him. That began a 30 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 a confessing evangelical Anglican based on the 1662 Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England, he is a commissioned evangelist of the Diocese of the Central States of the Reformed Episcopal Church which is part of the Anglican Church of North America and is presently enrolled in the Masters of Theology program at Union School of Theology headquartered in Oxford, England.

Alex Burt – Bethlehem, GA
My name is Alex Burt. I am married to a wonderful woman named Kim and we have two children. Kaitlyn is 21 and Luke is 16.
God found it in His mercy to save me in 1997 and I almost immediately felt the calling to take the Gospel of Jesus outside the four walls of the church. I remember hearing an old preacher say: “I hear all these young preachers complaining about not having anywhere to preach! Last time I checked, there was still a sidewalk out there!”
Although I didn’t realize it at the time, that triggered something inside me and before I knew it, I was outside our local Courthouse the first Saturday of every month preaching.
God really messed up my “normal” Christian life when I ran across Ray Comfort and his teaching, “Hell’s Best Kept Secret”. After hearing that sermon and listening to it many times I knew God was calling me to open air evangelism. My job relocated my family to Arizona in 2004 and while living there I was able to attend the Ambassadors’ Academy in California. Immediately following the academy I began going to Mill Avenue, which is right beside Arizona State University, and sharing the Gospel on Saturday nights.
In God’s providence we relocated to Bethlehem, Ga. in 2009, with the University of Georgia only 20 miles away. I am blessed to be able to share the Gospel through tracts, one on one conversations and open air preaching in downtown Athens on Friday nights and before home football games.

Sean Keefe – Raleigh, NC
Born and raised as a dead man walking, I was a partying, non-penitent, non-regenerate Catholic from Jersey for the first 18 years of my life. When I was 20, by God’s grace, some supernatural things occurred and I received Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of my life one Thanksgiving (1999) shortly after. Moved to Raleigh in 2003, met my wife, Elisa, in 2006 and married that sweet woman in 2007. I have two wonderful (most of the time) step children, Miranda and Joe. I have been working as a property manager of an apartment community in Durham, NC since March of 2006. Through my wife’s encouragement and the fellowship/discipleship of more mature believers, I have been especially passionate about the great commission for the past two and a half years. By God’s providence I have had multiple privileges to publicly proclaim Christ as well many one-on-one conversations. This will be my second Super Bowl Outreach. The first one was intense, but a real blast serving the LORD in such a biblically relevant way. Can’t wait to see the fruit on the other side! Worthy is the Lamb!!

Stephen Morris – Raleigh, NC
Thank God for Jesus! I go by Stephen Morris, and I’m thankful for God’s grace that has brought me into His family as His son by Jesus’ blood and resurrection! I made a profession of salvation at age 5, but doubt and sinful living were consistent during my childhood and adolescent years. Many times when troubled about my eternal life/death, I prayed for salvation. There still remained doubting, and when I hit puberty, my bent toward sin grew. At age 15, while with my family at a revival, camp meeting in Georgia, my brother Samuel asked my dad, “How can I know I’m saved?” In that moment the Spirit began deep conviction in my life, and 2 days later as my dad preached on “Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift” the LORD God called me to Himself and saved me!
The doubting returned that same evening I was saved and the rest of the summer was heavy with spiritual struggle. The Lord testified through His Spirit in my life that I was born again by my changing heart and ways, even though sin still messed me up and disobedience to Jesus as the Lord of all of me hindered my growth in grace.
Since the Lord Jesus revived a heart that wants to know and follow Him about 4 years ago, He has grown me in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. His uniting me to His church by my fellowship with His church at Imago Dei Church here where I live in Raleigh, NC has blessed my soul. I was baptized there on Easter Sunday 2013 and have been a member since Fall of that same year. By the edifying of my church and the Holy Spirit, God the LORD has deepened my love to my Savior and my love to my neighbors. My prayer is “that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Chris Teal – Dillsburg, PA
My name is Chris Teal. I am 36-year-old living in Dillsburg, PA. I have been married for eight years to my beautiful wife Melissa and we have two boys with a third on the way. I work for the Department of Defense. I came to know Jesus Christ after returning from having spent two tours in Iraq for the U.S Army. Coming home I hooked up with a healthy church, which is where I also met my wife Melissa. I have had a recent burden for reaching the lost. I had reached out to Tommy Waltz and have had nine weeks of discipleship training with him through a program he offers. Tommy had relayed me to Bill Adams and now I have had chances to talk to Bill and he encouraged me to go out and profess Christ in my local city. I am really looking forward to this upcoming Super Bowl trip to be amongst fellow brothers in Christ and to lift up our Lord and Savior to football fans.
