The Charleston Leadership Foundation is going long this year with its annual Charleston Community Prayer Breakfast.
Football great Joe Gibbs is the keynote speaker. Gibbs, who was head coach of the Washington Redskins before becoming a NASCAR team owner, is coming to talk about the importance of God in his life and the ways in which Christian faith can help one stay in his lane and focus on the finish line.
He will touch on themes presented in his new book, “Game Plan for Life.” Wednesday’s prayer breakfast will be Gibbs’ first official speaking engagement in Charleston.
He said he felt a little guilty becoming a professional football coach: It didn’t seem like a proper job, it was too much fun. But then he realized that God creates diversity and expects variety.
