In this very personal presentation, Vance will share his story with brutal honesty and transparency. Starting with his toxic childhood environment in Trenton, NJ. He will talk about the athletic prowess that landed him on the biggest and brightest stages (including the NCAA Track & Field Championships, the Pan American games, and ultimately the NFL gridiron) and the addiction to pills and alcohol that took it all away.

redemption, faith, and recovery will inspire the audience and leave them with a better understanding of the power of addiction, and the overwhelming strength of hope and
Vance’s motivational story about the power of God’s love and forgiveness is one that people of all faiths can relate to. When he was brought to his lowest point in a canyon in Colorado, it was God’s name he called, and God who answered that call, delivering Vance from the powerful control of addictions and trauma. Vance is a firm believer in the strength one can find in Christ, and the solace found in the pages of the Bible. He will motivate your audience
to love the Lord as much as he does, and inspire everyone with an incredible story of loss, heartache, and recovery, all with the power of God at the helm.
