About the event

Sport Officials Surrendered is proud to partner with Pat Fraher, Darron George, and Steve Javie to bring you the first ever Referees Embracing Faith Conference.

This first of its kind, a nondenominational, faith based conference is a 1-day event. It is a call to referees of all sports and of all levels to embrace their own personal Christian faith, as well as encourage others to seek and continue in theirs. As Proverbs 27:17 says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."

The theme of the conference will be simple: the Greatest Commandment; "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind...' And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Matthew 22:37-39)

While this event will be focused on Faith related to Sport Officials, we are encouraging spouses to attend as this is an awesome chance to meet other spouses. This is an opportunity for the community of sports officials to come together through faith and bring with them those they love the most. If you have questions about this please contact us directly at

Tickets will be $25.00 but will be COLLECTED AT THE DOOR. (Please fill out form for RSVP! Headcount is important)

-General admission seating and a lunch are included in the price

Bring your bibles and your journals this will be a very fruitful experience.
