Tim Tebow to deliver Father’s Day sermon on Chargers’ home field

In November, Tim Tebow led the Denver Broncos to an overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium. On Sunday, Tebow will be back at Qualcomm for a different purpose.

Tebow is the special guest at a special Father’s Day service hosted at Qualcomm by the Shadow Mountain Community Church. The message of the sermon will be “Encouraging Men to Live, Love & Lead.”

The event will likely draw tens of thousands, and the church said that once Tebow’s presence had been secured, they knew they’d need to find a much bigger facility than their own building. Qualcomm was the logical choice.

“If there’s anybody in our country today who illustrates what it means to live with passion and break the mold, and to rise above what everybody says are your limitations, it’s Tim Tebow,” Shadow Mountain spokesman David St. John told the North County Times. “He did that as a quarterback in Florida, he did that in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, and I certainly wouldn’t want to be in the camp that bets against him as he continues his career with the Jets. There are a lot of folks who will be sitting in the bleachers on Sunday who have been given the same kind of message -- either, ‘You’re not talented enough’ or ‘You’re not capable of leading.’”

Mark Sanchez has heard those criticisms. Maybe he should listen to what Tebow has to say.
