More than 175 men heard a winning message from five-time champion Billy Thompson at The Gathering of Men’s Fall Outreach Breakfast on October 25. Thompson shared personal highlights, inspirational stories and professional encouragement from his NBA career, including his seasons with the Miami Heat and back-to-back championships with the LA Lakers. In college, the Louisville Cardinals won an NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship with Billy as their forward. He also led Hapoel Jerusalem to two State Cup titles for the first time in Israeli history. A born-again Christian, Thompson presently pastors Jesus People Proclaim International Church with his wife of 30+ years, Cynthia.
