Men’s Retreat—The Uncommon Man

with Tony Dungy and James "J.B." Brown

March 6-8, 2020

What does it take to live a life of significance? Too often we define a man’s success by what he has—or what he’s achieved—rather than who he is. But the Bible shows us the true way: Follow the narrow path dedicated to Jesus Christ, pursuing the attitudes, ambitions, and allegiances that honor Him. Come learn the real definition of winning in life. Examine the importance of humility, character, integrity, and courage. Deepen your walk with Christ, your appreciation for your family and your gratefulness for godly men that the Lord places in your life.

Tony Dungy

TONY DUNGY is a No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of several Bible studies and faith-fueled books such as Quiet Strength, Uncommon, The Mentor Leader, Uncommon Marriage (written with his wife, Lauren), and his latest, The Soul of a Team. He led the Indianapolis Colts to Super Bowl victory on February 4, 2007, the first such win for an African American head coach. Dungy established another NFL first by becoming the first head coach to lead his teams to the playoffs for ten consecutive years. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

Dungy joined the Colts in 2002 after serving as the most successful head coach in Tampa Bay Buccaneers' history. He has also held assistant coaching positions with the University of Minnesota, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Minnesota Vikings. Before becoming a coach, he played three seasons in the NFL. Dungy retired from coaching in 2009 and now serves as a studio analyst for NBC's Football Night in America.

He is the national spokesman for All Pro Dad and has also been involved with Abe Brown Ministries, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Athletes in Action, Mentors for Life, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Boys & Girls Clubs. Dungy works with Basket of Hope, Impact for Living, the Black Coaches Association National Convention, Indiana Black Expo, the United Way of Central Indiana, and the American Diabetes Association.

An ordained minister, Brown is a conference speaker, who regularly preaches at big and small churches alike—and gets a special joy in speaking at his father-in-law’s church, Holly Hill Church of Christ in LaGrange, N.C. He is also author of the memoir, Role of a Lifetime: Reflections on Faith, Family and Significant Living.

A three-time Emmy Award-winning network broadcaster, Brown has hosted the Super Bowl a record-tying nine times, including Super Bowl 53 on CBS in 2019. Among numerous honors, Brown received the 2016 Pete Rozelle Award by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which recognizes “longtime exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football,” and “The Uncommon Award” from Tony Dungy for his “uncommon leadership through character and faith.” In 2010, named him the Best Studio Host of the Decade. Brown is also a special correspondent for CBS News and contributes to various programs such as “CBS Evening News”, “60 Minutes”, “48 Hours” and “CBS This Morning.”

Formerly, Brown anchored the pre-game and half-time show for “Thursday Night Football” on CBS and NFL Network, co-hosted “Fox NFL Sunday,” and hosted a nationally syndicated radio show on Sporting News Radio. He is also a founding partner of Major League Baseball’s reigning world champion Washington Nationals. Brown graduated from Harvard University with a degree in American Government, received All-Ivy League honors, and captained the basketball team. He counts traveling to Israel with 18 NFL Hall of Famers three years ago as a spiritual highlight.
