Legendary Coach Mike Jarvis and Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley to Speak at Alfred Street Baptist Church Men's Retreat, July 22-24 / Sandy Cove, Maryland
This three-day, two-night event will include men from all around the DMV (DC, Maryland, and VA) who are both eager and elated to hear Coach Mike Jarvis speak because of his profound career in sports where he built a record of 583-326.
The practice of motivating his players has been incorporated into his life which is why Alfred Street Baptist Church invited him to be their keynote speaker for their men. Along with sharing his life skills for success, he will also discuss what it takes to motivate and inspire men both young and old to excel and find their true destiny. After all, this is the man who taught former NBA center Patrick Ewing how to play basketball upon his arrival to the United States from Jamaica. As a result, Ewing became an NBA All-star and arguably one of the best to ever play the game of basketball.
Since retiring from coaching, Jarvis spends his time doing book signings and appearances to share words of wisdom with respect to his two bestselling books, entitled "Everybody Needs a Head Coach" and "Skills For Life: The Fundamentals You Need to Succeed", augmented by being an analyst for Fox Sports.
Alfred Street Baptist Church is thrilled to introduce Coach Jarvis to the men who will be in attendance at this one-of-a-kind bonding event. He has been a head coach and coached many exceptional all-star players, but notes the most important decision he made occurred on April 29, 2005, when he "accepted Jesus Christ as his Head Coach."
"We are looking forward to hearing what Coach Mike Jarvis has to say to the men of today, in light of the current circumstances and real issues facing Black men in America. We are confident that he will be able to empower, encourage and educate the men in attendance and provide them with the necessary takeaway skills needed to be successful in life," said Alfred Street Baptist Church pastor Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley. "In addition, we will also welcome three spiritually uplifting speakers including but not limited to: Rev. Kevin G. Swann, pastor, Ivy Baptist Church in Newport News, Virginia; Ronald E. Hopson, PHD, associate professor of Psychology and Divinity at Howard University and Dr. Donte Hickman Sr., pastor of Southern Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland."
