Members of Christian Men United at Plant City Church of God welcomed football legend Bobby Bowden to the church Saturday, May 14.
Bowden, a former Florida State University football coach who has over 300 victories under his belt, was one of the keynote speakers for the church’s “United!” event, held May 13 and 14. Other keynote speakers included recording artist Meredith Andrews and the Rev. Tony Suárez.
Bowden, who is still heavily involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, spoke about his family and his unwavering faith.
“I am a Christian,” Bowden said. “I’m not ashamed of that. I never go anywhere without that cross.”
Bowden is the author of Called to Coach, The Bowden Way and The Wisdom of Faith. He and his wife, Ann, live in Tallahassee.
