Breakfast with Matt Birk in NYC

Not many people can say they had breakfast with a Super Bowl Champion. But recently, a group of SPO students and staff traveled to New York City to hear NFL Man of the Year and all-pro center Matt Birk speak at a breakfast event. The event was hosted by the New York Men's Leadership Forum, an organization that encourages professional men to grow in holiness and Christian service.

Around 50 businessmen came to hear Matt, an SPO supporter, as he shared the ups and downs of his faith journey through college and the NFL, and how he currently lives out his faith. Matt now works as the NFL Director of Football Development.

Matt has previously spoken at Men on a Mission events in Minnesota.
