What Is Football Sunday?

Football Sunday is a collection of free media resources for churches to use on Super Bowl weekend, created to introduce believers and non-believers to NFL athletes, many of whom are playing in this year's Super Bowl. This evangelistic media presentation points unapologetically toward Jesus, and displays how these athletes are decreasing so that the life of Christ might increase in and through them. Hear stories from Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum, and New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis. It's all hosted by New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, on location in New Orleans. The Football Sunday movement has gone global, and this year promises to speak to your church and your community in ways only God can inspire.
