Joe Gibbs’ Story

Given his unique rise to the top of two different sports NFL Football and NASCAR racing, Coach Gibbs is often asked to speak and share his personal testimony with crowds. Men especially want to know what it takes to be “successful” and “relevant.” The Game Plan helps men to find true success and relevance in their own lives. However, it is less about Joe, than it is about who men are, why they were created and what they can really do with their lives.

Os Guinness

From Coach Gibbs:

“Os Guinness has a deep sense of the great calling men have on their lives. We wanted his contribution to the Game Plan for Life project to be on vocation and careers. This topic is important to most ambitious men, but Os helps us see that in the end, we are accountable in life to an audience of one–God. I think the fact that he grew up in China and England helps him be objective when speaking to American men and I’m thankful for his voice in this project.”
