    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Jake McEntire was a movie-minded student at Dallas Baptist University in 2004 when he felt God leading him to write a film script. Thanks to prodding from a few friends -- and lots of prayer -- McEntire finally did so.

    McEntire's 14-year-old screenplay becomes reality Feb. 22 when "Run the Race" is released in theaters. Former NFL and college football player Tim Tebow and his brother Robby served as executive producers, while Chris Dowling (Where Hope Grows) directed it.

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Tim Tebow -- the Heisman Trophy winner, football and baseball player, and television broadcaster -- now has another title to add to his resume: movie producer.

    Tebow and brother Robby Tebow are executive producers of an upcoming faith-based film, "Run the Race," that tells the fictional story of two brothers who are high school athletes and see their relationship tested when they seek different paths.

    A release date has not been set for the film, which is in post-production. It was directed by Chris Dowling, who has been involved in other faith-based films including "Where Hope Grows" (producer, 2014) and "Priceless" (writer, 2016). LifeWay Films hosted a screening of "Run the Race" last year following the Southern Baptist Convention's annual Pastor's Conference in Phoenix. Read More

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- As a homeschooled child, Tim Tebow sat down with his parents and made a list of goals he had for his future, including becoming a baseball player and a Navy SEAL. Then he reviewed those goals daily with his mother, charting progress along the way.

    While God never called Tebow to be a SEAL, he writes in a new book that the personalized guidance of homeschooling played a significant role in his eventual success as an athlete. The former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for the University of Florida, in "Know Who You Are. Live Like It Matters," published by WaterBrook, relays a series of lessons aimed at homeschoolers from his perspective. Read More
