SFOI 1,000

The SFOI 1,000 is a movement to have the Gospel preached Lord willing at every NCAA Division I college and NFL home game this fall plus Rugby, Football and Cricket games.

There are 87 games in the first week of NCAA Football Division I.

There are 16 games in the first week of the NFL’s season.

Total: 103 games.

Will you join this movement and commit to preaching at every home college and/or professional game in your area for this fall season?  In other words if you commit and you lived in Tuscaloosa, AL you would commit to preach at every home Alabama game. Or if you live in Green Bay and commit like Brother Heath Pucel you preach at every home Packer game. Not just one or two but all the games.

There’s many reasons for committing to every home game:

1) Consistency makes a ministry more fruitful.

2) There are many people who will see you at the first game and ignore you but by the fifth game they are listening to you and your message.

3) There are many people who work at the games that would see you each week and you would learn and be able to minister to them.

4) You’ll see people at the games who have perhaps seen you preaching at other venues.

5) Football games are the only sport/activity where the crowds are large every week. Plus they contain a high number of season ticket holders which means the same people see you every week.

6) You’ll grow as an evangelist and preacher from making a commitment, rearranging your schedule and being at each game.

7) You can recruit others to join you over the season who can join you at other events and for the next season.

So if you are ready to join the movement and make the commitment then……

Email Steven at, and he will respond within 24 hours.

If you want to commit but have never preached before or have no experience preaching at a football game contact us for training.

What else do you have to do in addition to preaching to be part of SFOI 1,000?  Submit a post game report with a couple of pictures that will be posted on the SFOI web site and social media pages.

You’ll receive free tracts.

Your picture, profile and the stadium at which you are preaching will be posted on the SFOI 1,000 preachers page.

Come on ‘Get in the Game’ and lift up your voice to tens of thousands of souls for our great God’s glory

Jeffery Padia – Fayetteville, GA

Jeffery Padia

I’m yet another survivor of cheap grace, easy believe-ism, “Americanized” evangelicalism. Baptized at age 16, though a false convert, I quickly succumbed to the worldliness and sin that my flesh craved. I found myself in a prolonged downward spiral, increasingly wallowing in the dregs of my wickedness and rebellion against God. I pursued every worldly thing that I thought might make me happy. I spent several years as a drunkard, regularly driving intoxicated after nights of bar-hopping. But God, being rich in mercy, opened my eyes to see how patient and kind and merciful He had been to me in preserving my life, even though His justice could have fallen on me like a hammer. In the misery of my lowest depths, I became dreadfully aware that I was not owed another day of His mercy. It was then that God granted me eyes to see His beauty, and grace to believe in Jesus as my only hope. The riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience had, indeed, led me to repentance (Romans 2:4)! Now, I’m thankful to be a five point, five sola, servant of the most high God!

My recent retirement from a 26 year career as an Air Traffic Controller here in Atlanta has afforded me the opportunity to attend several evangelism conferences, and has allowed some additional much-needed time to focus on becoming a better-equipped servant of the Lord. As a member of Faith Bible Church in nearby Sharpsburg, GA, I’m thankful to have been able to proclaim the glories of Jesus Christ and His gospel as a member of our nursing home visitation team over the past several years. God continues to grow me through ministry opportunities at local abortion mills, as well as through local outreaches with fellow SFOI evangelists Steven Ely and Jim Grega. My recent trip to the 2016 Kentucky Derby SFOI Outreach served to further fuel my passion to proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.

I’m honored to be associated with Bill Adams and Sports Fan Outreach International, and am humbled to be entrusted with the task of proclaiming Christ at the Atlanta Falcons home games during this 2016 season. If you desire to join in this work, please contact me for information so that I may help you! Soli Deo Gloria!

Heath Pucel –  Green Bay, WI

Heath Pucel
My name is Heath Pucel. I’ve been married 12 years a wonderful wife who keeps me humble. I live in Green Bay Wisconsin, and I’m a trainer for a large health insurance company. The Lord graciously granted me repentance unto salvation and from my false conversion in 2004 when I was praying in my naivety for how to share my faith biblically. I had attended a lot of witnessing training in the past but it was more lifestyle evangelism; but in 2004, not only did he show me how, He also brought me to repentance in faith through the ministry of Living Waters. Since then, I’ve had a desire and burden to share the Gospel in Green Bay, around the country and abroad. My past experience with evangelism has opened up opportunities for me to attend outings such as: 2008 Ambassadors Academy #3, the 2012 ,2013, 2015 & 2016 Super Bowl Outreaches, 2013 and 2014 Kentucky Derby Outreaches, OAC SET 2012 and 2013. The Sweet Auburn Festival, ministry at ASU, UW Stevens Point and Madison campuses and numerous local events such as Walleye weekend, Wisconsin State Fair, Jehovah’s Witness conventions, and Green Bay Packer Games. God has given me the privilege to meet up with faithful saints locally and across the country to labor and minister His word in the open air and all praise, glory and honor to His name.

Jaycen Saab – Bridgeport, WV

Jaycen Saab

Jaycen Saab was raised in a Roman Catholic home until leaving for the U.S. Navy a month after graduating high school.  While in the military he waded in and out of religious gatherings of both Roman Catholicism and Evangelical services.  Upon returning home he spent many years without a saving relationship with Christ bouncing in and out of bars playing with bands and then running a successful DJ/karaoke business.

While still DJ’ing he began attending his first Protestant church.  Soon thereafter, he professed Christ through the traditional sinner’s prayer and only 3 short months later, it was obvious he was simply another false convert.

In October 2004, spurned by a family tragedy, he surrendered to Christ and has been growing and walking with our Lord ever since his true conversion.

In 2005, he felt the call to ministry and began as a youth pastor and worship leader only to discover many unbiblical practices as typical in the seeker-friendly church in America.

After eventually finding a Biblical church, he served for 3 1/2 years as worship leader and itinerant preacher which led to answering the call of an evangelist.  In 2013 he arrived at his current church only to find that the elders had been praying for someone with the gift of evangelism to 1 1/2 yrs prior to his arrival.  The church stood in agreement that modern evangelism methods fall short of being Biblical and there is a need to return to the Biblical examples of street preaching.

Since then, along with another elder, he leads the street team at his church.  His ministry takes him throughout all of Appalachia in West Virginia focusing on festivals, city streets, and any events where a large gathering people may be found.

He is married and has 4 children and is a commissioned evangelist by his church Fellowship Bible Church.
