2018 DCLPB Keynote Speaker
As the daughter of an army colonel, Pam Tebow lived all over the world until she was seventeen when she entered the University of Florida. She graduated with honors in Journalism and Communication. While in college, Pam met Bob, and they were married upon graduation in 1971. The Tebows have five children, who are active in various ministries— and six precious grandchildren.
Pam and Bob have been called “homeschool pioneers.” They began homeschooling in 1982, when “homeschool” was not yet a word. All five of their children were homeschooled from kindergarten through high school, and every one of them received college scholarships.
The Tebows lived for a number of years as missionaries in the Philippines, where Bob continues to have an ongoing ministry, the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association. BTEA supports 55 nationals who preach the gospel throughout the Philippines and stimulate church planting. Through the preaching of the national evangelists and the Americans accompanying Bob on numerous mission trips, over one million people a year profess their faith in Jesus Christ. Their orphanage (Uncle Dick’s Home) has been home to scores of Filipino orphans since 1992. The Tebows also have an ongoing ministry in several semi-closed Asian countries, where they encourage their national partners, speak at conferences, and support orphanages, Bible schools, and a safe house they founded for rescued girls.
Pam loves speaking for women’s groups, nonprofit fundraisers, and various events in many cities across the country. Her notoriety increased when her youngest son won the Heisman Trophy following his sophomore football season with the Florida Gators. Because ESPN aired the portion of the interview with Pam that focused on her refusal to abort “Timmy” when she was advised to do so, she has been given a national platform to encourage the pro-life message. In 2010, Pam and Tim were in a Super Bowl commercial that celebrated family and life, which, according to a Barna survey, resulted in 5.5 million people “having cause to rethink their stand on abortion.” She has also appeared on Good Morning America and won national awards, including Eagle Forum’s “Woman of the Year” and “Witness in the Public Square” in 2012, “Commission for Women “Inspiring Woman of the Year” in 2013, and “Extraordinary Woman of the Year” in 2014. Pam is also passionate about encouraging women to trust the Lord with all their hearts for all their lives and to use the incredible influence God has given them to impact their world eternally.
