Spears to speak at events

Willie Spears, a 2000 Northwestern Oklahoma State University graduate and member of the 1999 NAIA national champion Ranger football team, will return to the Alva area April 14 to share a message at Hopeton Church and the eXtreme event.

Spears’ message to the congregation during the 10 a.m. service in Hopeton and 1 p.m. service at the eXtreme event in downtown Alva will focus on the theme of being selfless. His message during the youth gathering at the 7 p.m. eXtreme event will focus on being the “real-deal” Christian.

All services are free and open to anyone interested in attending.

Spears, who has begun his second year as head football coach at Escambia High School in Pensacola, Fla., has been a speaker for a number of years, speaking with a mixture of comedy, love, knowledge and charisma. Through “The Willie Spears Experience,” Spears shares messages of faith in churches and camps, but also is able to provide information to young people who may be struggling with various decisions in life. He’s also been known to motivate educators and other leaders through various professional development seminars.
