Meet Bobby Bowden
America's Most Well Known College Football Coach
Bobby Bowden is known as much for his affable charm as he is for his championship teams. Having coached young men in seven decades, he became the second winningest coach in major college football history. Bowden guided Florida State University to more than three hundred victories, two national championships, twelve Atlantic Coast Conference titles, finishing in the top five in the country in 14 straight seasons, and led the Seminoles to Bowl Games in 28‐consecutive seasons during his 34‐year tenure. The patriarch of college football’s most famous coaching family, Bowden remains heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; annually awarding The National Bobby Bowden Award to a student‐athlete for achievement on and off the field, including his conduct as a faith model in the community. Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006. He and his wife of 61 years, Ann, live in Tallahassee, Florida.
When & Where
CBMC Tampa Bay
CBMC stands for Christian Businessmen’s Connection. We are a men’s ministry with the mission to present Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to business and professional men and to develop Christian businessmen to carry out the Great Commission.
Sooner or later, we all conclude that there’s got to be something more to life. Everything may be perfect, and yet we wonder if this is all there is to living. At CBMC, we believe the secret to solving our discontent lies in connection. By connecting with God and other men, we can experience the kind of satisfaction that fills our lives with meaning.
In CBMC, Christian businessmen connect others to Jesus Christ, and by His grace, they connect to other businessmen from all walks of life. Our diverse members share a common desire to deepen their connection with God, and along the way, they answer the call to tell others about the completeness they’ve discovered through Christ. Because when they do, everything seems to connect.
