Tim Tebow and the Duck Dynasty family are working together in 2014 on various Christian ministries which will have them touring together.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, some people even believed Tim Tebow was blackballed from the NFL due to being too open with his Christian beliefs.
Jase Robertson and Tebow are both Christians who are actively involved in spreading the gospel throughout the United States and the world. The first time the Duck Dynasty family met up with the ex-NFL QB was in 2013 when they traveled together to speak to high school football teams to share their personal testimonies:

Their first stop will be the University of South Florida for the 2014 Wildfire "Men's Impact Weekend" conference. In the meantime, it seems Tebow and Robertson have been hanging out... and bulking up:

This type of thing is not new to Tebow. Even during the height of his time in the NFL, Tim Tebow used to skip practices in-between seasons sometimes in order to focus on Christian ministries. When times became tough and he could not find a job within the NFL he revealed his was on God first, with the NFL being second place in his heart:
"I've never found my identity in who I was as a football player. I found my identity in who I am in Christ. And when you find your identity as a Christian, then regardless of your status, or your fame, or your popularity, or your position, that never changes. So the roller-coaster that the world has always looked at my life and viewed, I'm very thankful that I don't have to live it. I'm the best now that I've ever been."
One of his other Christian ministries is the Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City. Plans for the children's hospital began in 2011 and the former Heisman trophy winner has added donation links to the CURE blog. The children's hospital project is a joint effort between the Tim Tebow Foundation and CURE International, a faith-based organization that offers programs and hospitals in 29 countries to assist in physical and spiritual healing. Building on the CURE hospital began in February 2012, and the Tim Tebow Foundation has recently announced the facility will be open by summer of 2014. All money collected will purportedly go directly to relief efforts, according to a statement released by the organization. Funds will go to "ministries that align with the foundation's mission to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need."
