Distinguished Speaker Event
Fellowship with Our Engaging Community
The Distinguished Speaker Event is held each fall honoring our faculty and staff. The event serves as an outreach to the community as we include parents, grandparents, alumni and friends.
During this event, we also take the opportunity to honor an alumnus for their contributions and alumni parents for their support of Second Baptist School over the years. All proceeds from the annual event go directly to pay for Christmas bonuses for Second Baptist School faculty members and salary increases in the following year.
This year's Distinguished Speaker Dinner has received an overwhelming response. We are thrilled to announce that all tables have been purchased by generous underwriters, marking the first-ever sell-out in the event's eighteen-year history. As a result, we are unable to offer additional ticket sales as initially planned.
For those who wish to contribute with a gift or make a pledge payment, I encourage you to do so by clicking below. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and contributes to the strength and vitality of our school community.
We invite you to join us on Sunday, October 29, 2023, to celebrate and thank our faculty for the incredible educational experience they provide for our students. Our community will hear from our Distinguished Speaker, Tim Tebow.

The five-time New York Times best-selling author, speaker, and football analyst is most passionate about his work with the Tim Tebow Foundation (TTF), whose mission is to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.
