Keynote Speaker: Adam Thielen

“There are underdog stories, and then there’s the story of Adam Thielen’s road to the NFL. Thielen grew up in Detroit Lakes, Minn., rooting for the Vikings and playing wide receiver, the same position as his favorite Vikings, Randy Moss and Cris Carter. He attended Minnesota State on a $500 football scholarship, borrowed money from his father to attend a regional combine, went undrafted in 2013 but earned an invite to Vikings camp, spent that season on the practice squad, and eventually worked his way onto the roster as a special teams ace.

In 2016, in his fourth year in the league, Thielen had a breakout season: 69 catches, 967 receiving yards and five touchdowns. This year his numbers are even better—through nine games he has 56 receptions and is third in the league in receiving yards, with 793, behind only Antonio Brown and DeAndre Hopkins.” (Source:

Thielen is coming off of his best season of his career and his first ever Pro Bowl bid. Come hear his faith story and NFL success story on April 22!
