Kurt Warner finished the 1999-2000 NFL season with a 414-yard performance in Super Bowl XXXIV, shattering Joe Montana's Super Bowl-record 357 passing yards. Not only did that performance lead the St. Louis Rams past the Tennessee Titans, it earned him Super Bowl MVP honors as well. During the regular 1999-2000 season, Kurt amassed 4,353 yards, 41 touchdowns, and a 109.1 passer rating - quite a feat for a guy who was bagging groceries a few years earlier.
Along with success came the inevitable media coverage. Cameras and microphones were in Kurt's face more than ever before. But what do you say with all the new attention? Some professional athletes use the publicity for self-glory, but Kurt Warner has a different topic on his mind. It's the message of Jesus Christ. Kurt is a Christian who jumps at the chance to give God the credit for his ability to play football. He was proclaiming the Good News in his first words after victory in the Super Bowl and he continues to this day, shouting, "Thank you, JESUS!!!"
"Looking at the big picture, I know my role in this...
"[Our 2003 Good Friday Prayer Breakfast] was sold out at 1,132 and became the spring board for our last two. People still comment on the message, the sincerity in your voice and down to earth style of speaking. Recently I attended your brother's church in Cedar Rapids where you preached the sermon...let me say this: When your NFL career is over we hope you consider pastoring a non-denominational Bible based church in Cedar Rapids!!! We further hope that your schedule will allow an instant replay at our event sometime in the future..."
