Former Super Bowl champion visits Bluefield church

Posted:

The Greater Mount Zion Pentecostal Church in Bluefield is hosting the Emmanuel's Ministers and Leaders Conference this weekend. 

The conference has featured multiple panel discussions among church ministers and leaders from all across the country. 

Willie Harper, a former Super Bowl-winning linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, has become a minister and was one of the more notable panelists. Harper spoke about the similarities between sports and church. 

"I've spoken on a few panels, but never about the church and my profession and the correlation between the two. This is really the first time, so I didn't really know what to expect," Harper said. 

Harper will be staying in Bluefield for the weekend, and is set to speak at the Greater Mount Zion Pentecostal Church Sunday morning.
