Steve Smith, the Carolina Panthers’ star wide receiver, will join Elevation Church Pastor Steven Furtick on the church’s stage this weekend (January 18-19).
Their Q&A will be live at Elevation’s Blakeney campus Saturday at 5 p.m. and then again Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. On Saturday, it’ll be live on screens at the church’s Matthews and Lake Norman locations; on Sunday, it’ll be live at Blakeney and on screens at all the other locations.
Smith attends the fast-growing evangelical church, according to Elevation spokeswoman Tonia Bendickson.
And Pastor Furtick is apparently a big Panthers fan: He was spotted at the team’s pre-playoff game practice last week.
