Dave Hubbard, America’s Fitness Coach

Dave Hubbard, America’s Fitness Coach
Saturday, March 23rd (during 11:10 am Worship Service)

Dave Hubbard, America's Fitness CoachBased on his bestselling book, Dave shares what he learned, following a near fatal parachuting accident, about overcoming the obstacles and excuses preventing most people from getting and staying fit for life. This presentation will forever change the way you think about exercise.

In 1979, Dave moved from the active world of the National Football League (New Orleans Saints) into a sedentary job. His playing weight combined with a serious back injury from his near fatal accident made it difficult to get back into shape physically. In the 90′s Dave changed the paradigm of exercise when he developed a new formula for fitness that allows anyone to get and stay fit in only 10-minutes a day.

Dave captivates audiences with his dramatic and humorous true life stories, and inspiring solutions. Dave challenges people not to settle for “average or good”, but instead, never rest until the good is better, and the better is best. Every presentation is packed with attainable action steps that inspire everyone to improve. His presentations are humorous, engaging, and highly entertaining.

Dr. Philip Samaan


Dr. Philip Samaan is presently a theology professor at Southern Adventist University. Prior to this he was a professor at the Theological Seminary at Andrews University, also serving as director of the Doctor of Ministry program, the Center for Continuing Education for Ministry, and the M.A. in Pastoral Ministry.

Dr. Samaan was born in the biblical city of Antioch in the country of Syria on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Thus, he comes to the subject of Middle East politics and religion from the standpoint of a native observer. He was raised in a Christian home in an area of the world where the three monotheistic religions, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity compete over territory and influence. As a teenager in the 1960’s, Samaan immigrated to the United States. You will find his personal perspective refreshing and his theological insights timely.

Among his published works are the books Blood Brothers, Portraits of the Messiah, Christ’s Way to Pray, Christ’s Way of Reaching People, Christ’s Way to Spiritual Growth, Christ’s Way of Making Disciples, and Christ’s Way to Restoration.

Each attendee will receive a copy of Dr. Samaan’s book, “Christ’s Method Alone” to use in our study.
