Zack Braddy – Wake Forest, NC
My name is Zack Braddy. I am 34 years old. I live in Wake Forest, NC. I have been married for 11 years to my beautiful wife, Kim, and I have 4 children: Halie (9), Peyton (6), Lucas (5), and Ava (1). I work for Wells Fargo in Real Estate Technical Services. I came to know Jesus Christ 14 years ago at East Carolina University through the campus ministry of Campus Crusade. I have been privileged to go on several mission trips making Jesus known, including two summer projects with Crusade, and several trips to Europe, Africa, and southeast Asia.
I became passionate about street evangelism and reaching the lost in this way in 2008, largely due to the ministry of LIving Waters and Ray Comfort. I have attended a couple of Ambassador’s Academies, and upon returning home to Raleigh from those trips, have begun to open air preach on a weekly basis at a local abortion clinic. I also frequent a local university in my area, and enjoy preaching Jesus at the local parades and other events. I love to workout, play sports, go to the beach, and spend time with my family. This will be my 2nd Super Bowl outreach.

Rick Garland – Bakersfield, CA
My name is Rick Garland and I was raised in a Christian home and brought to true faith in Christ as a young adult. With a friend I co-founded Project Lazarus an evangelistic ministry with an emphasis on aiding the poor. The ministry exists today as The March of Truth through which I teach, evangelize and aid the poor as well as missionaries. In 2008 I began working with a pro-life ministry and met my future wife Amy. We labored as friends in that ministry before joining in marriage and today we labor side by side.
I began open air preaching with 22nd Street Ministries in the summer of 2012. Today I am active in weekly evangelism by open air preaching, and door to door evangelism as well as teaching in Sunday School, preaching weekly in our Christian School and serving as the outreach director for McKee Road Baptist Church.

For the past 2 1/2 years I have been traveling to Chicago with the Chicago Evangelism Team (you can find us on Facebook) at least once per month and we are beginning to travel to other large cities within a few hours of us (St. Louis, Indianapolis). I am currently a self-employed contractor and one day hope to be doing full time evangelism…Lord willing!
Bobby McCreery – Athens, GA
Bobby is the husband of an excellent, devoted, and prayerful wife and father of three wonderful daughters and one son. Bobby was raised in a Christian home, and around age 8 prayed a “sinner’s prayer” and was told if he meant it then he was saved and would always be saved. He walked in darkness loving his sin for over 20 years until God granted him true repentance and faith and made him a new creation in Christ in January of 2009. Glory to God alone!
Bobby attended Living Waters’ Ambassador’s Academy in August 2009 and is also grateful to God for the mentoring he has received from experienced evangelists around the world. This will be his sixth Super Bowl Outreach and fourth as a team leader. He has also had the privilege of speaking and/or leading outreach teams at events like Jeremiah Cry’s Herald Society and East Coast Tours, The Kentucky Derby, Fall for Greenville, London’s 2012 Summer Olympics, and Wimbledon 2013 to name a few.
Bobby is the founder of To the End of the Earth ministries and left his secular job to respond to the Lord’s call to full-time evangelistic service in January 2011.
His main mission field is Athens, GA, where he preaches on the campus of the University of Georgia, in downtown Athens, at a nearby abortion clinic, and anywhere else people can be found.
His great desire is to by the grace of God is to honor Christ by loving his wife and children first while serving, encouraging, and equipping the local church. He also prays that God would be pleased to revive and awaken the city of Athens, GA and the University of Georgia. Bobby also serves on the staff of Jeremiah Cry Ministries and works closely with Sports Fan Outreach International and Revival USA. Contact Bobby via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Jason McGough. I am from Loris, SC. I have been married for 10 years to my lovely bride Missy. I have 3 children. Morgan (17), Jayce (8) and Lillie (5). I am a Co-leader in a ministry group called the www.fivesolasoutreachministry.com. We typically meet once a month for various outreaches including abortion clinics, festivals and college campuses in our local area. I also have the opportunity to preach 1 to 2 times a week in a small busy downtown area nearby my workplace with my brother Jamie hall during my lunch break.
This will be my 3rd Super Bowl, and my 2nd opportunity to lead a team. I also have had the pleasure to labor with SFOI during the Kentucky Derby and Dogwood festival in the past. Lord willing, I am looking forward to this year’s Super Bowl to be able to have fellowship with the saints who will be attending, and labor with them to reach the lost with the heralding of the Gospel.
I live in Fort Worth, Texas. God saved me from His holy wrath and my sins in 2006. I have been active in street evangelism since 2013. I love preaching God’s good news both on the streets and in the pulpit. I am an active member of Rock Creek Baptist Church in Crowley, Texas. I am under the authority of this local body. My ministry would not be possible without Rock Creek. I have been blessed to street preach and evangelize in Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, and New York. I fully support SFOI in its ministry endeavors.
I have served with Brother Bill Adams in two Superbowl outreaches (NYC and Phoenix) and one final four outreach (Dallas). I currently am pursuing my MDiv at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a concentration in Greek and Hebrew.. I’m looking to graduate in May 2016.
Andy grew up Catholic but at a very young age knew something was missing. As a teen, siblings shared the good news in an ask Jesus in your heart way. This, he embraced and lived as a false convert until the Lord granted him repentance about the age of 35. He and his wife learned biblical evangelism in 2004 stumbling across WOTM TV show. Since then evangelism for them was forever changed.
He with his wife started Fishers of Men Medical Ministries and did overseas evangelical/medical missions from 2003-2011 and has since then focused on local evangelism in the immediate area and around the US. This will be Andy’s 7th SBO and second as a team leader. He looks forward to serving Bill and the team members that the Lord will put together through prayer. Lately the U of Oregon has been Andy’s weekly fishing hole and when school is out the weekly local farmers market. May God rise up more laborers to join the harvest.
Even though I grew up going to church it wasn’t till by God’s grace I was saved back in August 2000 through faith in Jesus Christ. It was not long after my conversion that I met and started to work with Ray Comfort. Through the ministry of Living Waters I learned how to reach out and share the gospel. I then found other believers who also wanted to intentionally share the gospel. We open-air preached, spoke to people one on one and handed out countless number of gospel tracts. After spending several years of being active in street ministry in Oklahoma and Texas I eventually moved out to Southern California where I work in house at Living Waters. The same ministry that had been so equipping to me to be a witness for Christ. Currently I go out Friday nights with my church to share the gospel one on one at an outdoor shopping area in Orange, CA. My family and I also go Saturday mornings to reach out with the gospel outside of an abortion mill in Riverside, CA.
This will be my 5th Super Bowl Outreach and my first opportunity to lead a team at this outreach. I have lead past teams at other evangelism outreach events such as the Ambassador Academies that Living Waters hosted. Even after several years of going to various evangelism outreach events and intentionally meeting people each week to share the good news, I still struggle with fear and hesitancy to speak. But I keep going in spite of my fears and ignore my feelings of hesitancies.
I have been married to my wife for over 24 years and we have 5 children. We have 4 girls and 1 boy. My boy Nathan (19) is our oldest and the girls are Megan (17), Morgan (17), Jordan (8), and Lauran (4). Two of our children are special needs which was an unexpected plan of God that has stretched us and blessed us. Not just our immediate family but even to many who know us.

I grew up in a family with no religious background. The leaders in my life were alcoholics and loved pornography, so this was my influence. I was born a twin. While I was in the womb, my position did not allow my right side to develop properly. I entered the world partially paralyzed and developed a speech impediment when I started talking. In the fourth grade I was diagnosed with a learning and reading disability. I was picked on a lot in school and was told that I was slow and dumb. During my late teenage years my father told me that I was not going to work on his farm because of my slow comprehension. I found work in Columbia, South Carolina as a personal trainer and my idol became my body. I also joined several rock bands. With my last band we produced a CD and toured the Southeast. This life was from the pits of hell. The longer I lived, the more I hated my life. I had no purpose, no meaning, and no direction.
At the age of twenty-three, a lady invited me to a play on the life of Jesus. It explained His life from birth to His resurrection. This was the start of the whole transformation. I didn’t give my life to Christ that night. I continued running for a year. As I read God’s word, deeper conviction of sin grew. I was on the verge of taking my life, but through God’s grace He spared my life. The night I was going to take my life I found a card in my room from a person that reminded me of Jesus’ love for me. Turning to the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, I repented and placed my faith in Jesus that night in my room. My view of life is simple – Jesus died and came out of the grave for me, so I have to live for Him.
My Jesus found me broken on my bedroom floor not wanting to live anymore. Oh, how can I not share His Glorious Name? He has taken a slow, crippled boy off a farm in South Carolina and given him new life. I type this with tears in my eyes. I am a man who is blessed beyond measure with an amazing wife who has believed in me from day one and three amazing girls.
May we all boast together in what Jesus Christ has done in all of our lives. We serve an amazing God. He saved us and now He deserves our entire lives.
I have had the opportunity to lead a ministry called Gospel of God Ministries since 2009. GGM preaches and teaches the Gospel until faith becomes action.
The faith has a twofold action. First, it is pulling the unbeliever into the kingdom through repentance and faith in Jesus. Second, it is pushing the believer out into the world to share their faith. Find out more at http://www.gospelgm.com
This will be my fourth SBO with New Orleans, New York, and Phoenix under my belt by God’s grace. I look forward to leading my team alongside the other leaders at next year’s SBO. Go and proclaim the Gospel to see a life transformed!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16
