Tim Worley is a former American football running back who played for the Georgia Bulldogs in college, and later went on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL).
Tim is an outstanding man who displays incredible leadership, love for Christ, and love for the kids of Power Cross. His heart is in the mission field of helping others and leading young men away from the path that he chose to follow when he was younger. He started public speaking because he had to complete community service hours, little did he know, God was preparing him for his destiny for the Kingdom:
“I’d been speaking here and there, and had just gotten inducted into the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame (in ’07). But, after nearly a decade of drug and alcohol abuse, I ended up in the news again. This time for being tasered by a Smyrna, GA police officer. I spent 23 days in jail. Although I was saved and grew up in the church, I knew the jig was up. I rededicated my life to Jesus. This time though, I didn’t just want Him to be my fire insurance from hell. I wanted Him to be Lord of my life. He’d sent an angel in a police officer’s uniform to save my life on April 13, 2008, so I figured the least I could do was let Him tell me how to live.”
The Tim we see today, is the Tim who leads and guides our boys towards the path and direction of success.
in 2015, he became “Certified as a John C. Maxwell speaker and leadership development trainer. This certification took my speaking and leadership development skills to a completely different dimension. Shortly afterward, I landed a speaking contract with K-LOVE / AiR1 radio.”
Tim was a guest speaker at Power Cross and he felt God calling him to be a larger part of the ministry, and now, he spends everyday mentoring and pouring life into the lives of the young men of Power Cross. He is right there beside them, eating with them, laughing with them, and providing a father figure for so many children.
“Most people hope to have one exciting career in their lifetime. I’m blessed to have two. Playing in the NFL was incredible. But, fifteen years into my speaking and leadership development consulting career, I’m beyond grateful for the countless opportunities I have to make a difference in peoples’ lives. That’s my purpose, and I’m honored to walk in it every day.”
