Cairn University is the primary sponsor of Faith On The Field Show—a radio show and podcast that talks faith and sports with professional Christian athletes.
This partnership will bring great opportunities to the University. An episode of Faith On The Field Show featuring President Todd Williams will air in early October. Rob Maaddi, founder of Faith On The Field Show, will host a book signing of his latest book, Birds of Pray, at Cairn University during the men’s basketball home opener on Friday, November 9, 2018.
“We are really excited to sponsor Faith On The Field Show,” said Paul Neal, sr. vp of marketing and enrollment. “This partnership allows for future internship opportunities for our students, especially those enrolled in our sports management program.”
Although only in production for under two years, Faith On The Field Show has featured star athletes, from women’s hockey olympian Gigi Marvin to MLB players Clayton Kershaw and Matt Carpenter. Several Super Bowl Champion Eagles, including quarterback Carson Wentz and head coach Doug Pederson, have appeared on the show and other Faith On The Field events.
Rob Maaddi said that the Faith On the Field Show team is “thrilled and honored to partner with Cairn University, whose mission statement aligns with the core values of our show.”
