Below is the center’s press release on the story.
Mark your calendars for November 8, 2012, for our Annual Fall Fundraising Banquet. This year our featured speaker will be Pam Tebow. As the daughter of an army colonel, Pam has lived all over the world. She graduated with honors from the College of Journalism and Communications at University of Florida. While in college, Pam met Bob Tebow, and they were married upon graduation in 1971. The Tebows have five children and four grandchildren. Each of the children and their spouses are active in various ministries!
Pam and Bob have been called “homeschool pioneers.” They began homeschooling in 1982. All five of their children were homeschooled from kindergarten through high school and every one of them received college scholarships.
The Tebows were missionaries in the Philippines where Bob continues to have an ongoing ministry, the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association. BTEA supports 50 nationals who preach the gospel throughout the Philippines and stimulate church planting. Through the preaching of the national evangelists and the Americans who accompany Bob on numerous mission trips, over one million people a year are professing their faith in Jesus Christ. Bob and Pam also run an orphanage (Uncle Dick’s Home) in the Philippines, which has been home to scores of orphans since 1992. Pam is very involved in her husband’s ministry and coordinates numerous projects and personnel.
The notoriety of the Tebow family increased when their youngest son, Tim, won the Heisman Trophy following his sophomore football season with the Florida Gators. Because ESPN aired the portion of the interview with Pam that focused on her refusal to abort “Timmy” when she was advised to do so, she has been given a national platform to encourage the pro-life message. In 2010, Pam and Tim were in a Super Bowl commercial that celebrated family and life, which, according to a Barna survey, resulted in 5.5 million people “having cause to rethink their stand on abortion.”
Banquet tickets will become available after Labor Day.
