Life changing

Sports and Faith have been huge aspects of my life. However Sometimes along the journey i felt conflicted between the two. Listening to Sports Spectrum since 2017 has helped me find alignment and Purpose in Jesus Christ. Sports is such a great way to bring Jesus into the conversation. I feel more aligned and convicted in my faith and bringing that to the soccer pitch.

Keeping Christ in the mainstream media

Jason keep the main thing the main thing. When the majority of other mainstream media outlets push Christ to the background, Sports Spectrum brings the most important message to the forefront. So appreciate this podcast!
