What makes a man a godly dad?
You’ll hear a powerful description on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “The Legacy of a Godly Dad.”
We’re airing a touching tribute paid by Brent Reaves to his father, “Smokey” John Reaves, the founder of Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que in Dallas. The family-run restaurant has a reputation for “serving up brisket with a side of Holy Spirit.” Not only did John serve some of the best barbecue in Texas, but he often hosted worship meetings and Bible studies in his restaurant.
Brent shares the greatest life lessons he learned from his Dad:
- The Importance of Prayer
- The Power of Building Relationships
- The Importance of Being Truthful
- The Importance of Giving Grace
- The Importance of Trusting God
Brent Reaves is the president of Smokey John’s, Inc., a black‐owned, family-owned-and-operated barbecue restaurant since 1976. Committed to family and community, Brent develops growth strategies for Smokey John’s Bar‐B‐Que & Home Cooking to expand the brand in order to create opportunities for his family as well as for those seeking to develop their skills or who simply need a second chance.
This message, given to a group of men at an event hosted by Wingmen Ministries, will remind men that they are their child’s role model for God the Father, and to act accordingly.
