Bill Adams – Chief Evangelist & Overseer

Bill Adams was raised in the church, Baptist and Methodist, and has never in his life not known of or considered God and His Word.

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 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 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 – Views from an Evangelist.

Bill is a graduate of The Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN [high school ’80]; Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX  [BBA ’84] and Belmont University in Nashville, TN [MBA ’88].

Ralph Joseph- Events Communicator & PCA General Assembly Representative

I have been married to my incredible wife Mary Ann nearing 22 years. We have a beautiful daughter together, who is a Junior at Grove City College.

I’ve been proclaiming Christ as Lord since 1989 when a co -worker shared the glorious gospel with me. Unfortunately, I kind of kicked back, attended church and half heartedly, waited for Christ’s return. Only in the last four and a half years have I been active for my Lord and King. Today, I believe that the gospel should effect all areas of the individual’s life, into the family, into the Church, and the government, as well as arts, music, etc. Jesus Christ is Lord and King now and everywhere.

Other than enjoying life together with my wife, I’ve done quite a bit of ministry at abortion mills, and as I’m able with individuals and teams on street corners, courthouses and colleges.

My name is Jason McGough. I am from Loris, SC. I have been married for 10 years to my lovely bride Missy. I have 3 children. Morgan (17), Jayce (8),  Lillie (5) and Knox (newborn). I am a Co-leader in a ministry group called the www.fivesolasoutreachministry.com. We typically meet once a month for various outreaches including abortion clinics, festivals and college campuses in our local area. I also have the opportunity to preach 1 to 2 times a week in a small busy downtown area nearby my workplace with my brother Jamie hall during my lunch break.

This will be my 4th Super Bowl, and my 3rd opportunity to lead a team. I also have had the pleasure to labor with SFOI during the Kentucky Derby and Dogwood festival in the past. Lord willing, I am looking forward to this year’s Super Bowl to be able to have fellowship with the saints who will be attending, and labor with them to reach the lost with the heralding of the Gospel.

Jeff Padia – G3 Conference Representative

I’m yet another survivor of cheap grace, easy believe-ism, “Americanized” evangelicalism. Baptized at age 16, though a false convert, I quickly succumbed to the worldliness and sin that my flesh craved. I found myself in a prolonged downward spiral, increasingly wallowing in the dregs of my wickedness and rebellion against God. I pursued every worldly thing that I thought might make me happy. I spent several years as a drunkard, regularly driving intoxicated after nights of bar-hopping. But God, being rich in mercy, opened my eyes to see how patient and kind and merciful He had been to me in preserving my life, even though His justice could have fallen on me like a hammer. In the misery of my lowest depths, I became dreadfully aware that I was not owed another day of His mercy. It was then that God granted me eyes to see His beauty, and grace to believe in Jesus as my only hope. The riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience had, indeed, led me to repentance (Romans 2:4)! Now, I’m thankful to be a five point, five sola, servant of the most high God!

My recent retirement from a 26 year career as an Air Traffic Controller here in Atlanta has afforded me the opportunity to attend several evangelism conferences, and has allowed some additional much-needed time to focus on becoming a better-equipped servant of the Lord. As a member of Faith Bible Church in nearby Sharpsburg, GA, I’m thankful to have been able to proclaim the glories of Jesus Christ and His gospel as a member of our nursing home visitation team over the past several years. God continues to grow me through ministry opportunities at local abortion mills, as well as through local outreaches with fellow SFOI evangelists Steven Ely and Jim Grega. My recent trip to the 2016 Kentucky Derby SFOI Outreach served to further fuel my passion to proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.

I’m honored to be associated with Bill Adams and Sports Fan Outreach International, and am humbled to be entrusted with the task of proclaiming Christ at the Atlanta Falcons home games during this 2017 season. If you desire to join in this work, please contact me for information so that I may help you! Soli Deo Gloria!
