Milwaukee, WI - Wisconsin Lutheran College will present the Divine Servant Award to Tim Tebow during a celebration event on Friday, June 4, 2021. Tebow is the author of three New York Times best-selling books; two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick, and Heisman Trophy winner; college football analyst for ESPN; former NFL quarterback; former outfielder for the New York Mets; and Christian leader and philanthropist.

Wisconsin Lutheran College established the Divine Servant Award in 2017 as an opportunity to honor an individual who exemplifies qualities of Christian servant leadership and has exhibited Christian values throughout his or her life of service. This event also serves as a fundraising event for student scholarships at Wisconsin Lutheran College. The inaugural award was presented in 2017 to President George W. Bush. The 2018 celebration honored NFL Hall of Famer Tony Dungy. David Green, founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby, received the award in 2019. Tebow was to be honored at a Divine Servant Award Celebration in April 2020, but the event was postponed until June 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021 event will be held at Wisconsin Lutheran College's Outdoor Athletic Complex, 1401 N. Swan Boulevard, Wauwatosa. Individual tickets are available for $300 per person or tables of ten for $3,000. The amazing evening will include a pre-event reception, Tim Tebow timeline experience, three-course gourmet dinner by Bartolotta Catering, special award presentation, engaging question and answer session with Tim Tebow, and a delectable afterglow with specialty coffee bar and entertainment. Planning is underway to provide a safe and physically distanced event; additional details will be shared in late April. The Divine Servant Award Celebration will take place outdoors under a large, heated tent.
