More Than Gold

Dear Friends,

This is an invitation to join me as my guest for the “Breakfast of Champions” on Saturday, March 2, 2002 from 8 to 10 a.m. in the auditorium at Christ Community Church, featuring Decathlete Dave Johnson who won an Olympic bronze medal at the 1992 Barcelona Summer Games.

Before the 1992 Olympics, the hype was enormous as Reebok promoted Dan O’Brien and Dave Johnson as the next superstars. Dan failed to make the Olympics, so the pressure on Dave Johnson’s shoulders was incredible. Would he let America down or would he claim the title of “The World’s Greatest Athlete”?

As if that pressure wasn’t enough…just before the games, Dave broke a bone in his foot! The doctors told him not to compete, but he went ahead anyway. His story will inspire you to press on through adversity regardless of circumstances.

I am hosting few tables and would enjoy your company. Please give me a call if you can make it. If you like to bring someone along please feel free to do so and let me know as soon as possible so that I can reserve the right number of seats for us.

Think and pray about guys you will want to invite to this outreach, friends, neighbors, co-workers and fathers/sons. Tickets will go quickly with preferred seating to those who sign up early, so don’t delay. We expect a sold out house.

I encourage you to put this date right away on your calendar and fill a table or two with guys who need to hear Dave’s “More Than Gold” story. For additional information, directions to Christ Community Church or to reserve your table(s) call Eric Rojas at 630.513.7500, fax 640.513.7501 or e-mail

You don’t want to miss this opportunity to have breakfast with Dave, me… and hundreds of other men.
