The Parabolani Award is one of the highest honors Texas Baptist Men bestows on an individual or individuals. The term Parabolani, or "God's risk taker" comes from the Philippians 2:30, "because he almost died for the work of Christ, risking his life to make up for the help you could not give me." (NIV) Those receiving this award have literally "risked" their lives to further His Kingdom.
