The GameChanger Coaches Leadership Summit, scheduled to take place in Dallas next week, will draw together dynamic speakers and leaders from the world of sports to encourage attendees to stand in the gap to help impact "a fatherless generation."
Influential figures like Tim Tebow, Joe Ehrmann, Gabrielle Douglas, Glenn Beck, Nick Vujicic and Pastor Derwin Gray of Transformation Church are among more than a dozen speakers lined up for the Feb. 18 event organized by the Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation (THSCEF).
Although the GameChanger summit is tailored for coaches, anyone in leadership and athletics is invited to attend.
D.W. Rutledge, executive director of the Texas High School Coaches Association and board member of the THSCEF, explained to The Christian Post that the theme of "Impacting a Fatherless Generation" was chosen because organizers feel that much of today's social issues "can be traced back to fatherless homes."
