FCA - AutoZone Liberty Bowl Prayer Breakfast
Keynote Speaker Chris Reis
About Chris Reis: Chris Reis is a loyal follower of Christ, devoted husband and father, pastor, Super Bowl champion, NFL player, author, and lifelong athlete. He is best known for his historic, game-changing play made during Super Bowl XLIV, and ultimately helping to lead his then team, the New Orleans Saints, to victory. As the first onside kick recovered before the fourth quarter during a Super Bowl game, NFL.com named Chris’ play one of the “top 10 greatest Super Bowl plays of the decade”.
Chris is a graduate of the Georgia Tech, where he was the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes throughout his entire college experience. It was here that Chris met his wife, Michelle. It was also within these walls of fellowship that Chris’ father Mike felt his own calling to surrender his life to Christ.
In 2012, Chris and his father, Mike, published a tell-all book titled Recovery of a Lifetime: The Inspirational Journey of a Super Bowl Hero Son and His Father's Battle Against Multiple Addictions. This father-and-son book unpacks the dynamics of family relationships and tells a redeeming story of faith, hope, restoration, and recovery. Today Chris works at Our Savior’s Church in Lafayette, Louisiana where he is the Young Adult and Student Pastor.
