Later, our guest of honor will sit at your table with you and your friends during our annual banquet at The Sheraton in Greensboro. You’ll also have your photo taken with Pam and receive a signed copy of her book, Ripple Effects: Discover the Miraculous Motivating Power of a Woman’s Influence.

Pam Tebow travels and speaks across the country, encouraging audiences to use the incredible influence God has given them to eternally impact their world. Pam graduated with honors from the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida. She and her husband, Bob, lived for a number of years as missionaries in the Philippines and continue to serve there through the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association. … When their youngest son, Tim, won the Heisman Trophy, Pam was featured in national media for her decision to choose life for Tim against a doctor’s advice. Their story has been highlighted on Good Morning America, on ESPN, and in a 2010 Super Bowl commercial celebrating family and life.”
