Good for sheer what a bush should be happy with the whether they win when you're down his spring training with the Dodgers to get a chance. Tick tick tock to these guys is it is it easier. On atmosphere for you to do which you which are looking to accomplish. Yeah I looked through training. It's it's such a great time because obviously you know for baseball players. They're all over throughout the throughout the year hundred machine near never in the city. More than you know for a cyber agency and so on you know per return they're here referrals. 67 straight weeks. And that is really good because they're interrupting me you know court reporter receive an out of my fifteenth and in the NFL Kuerten in the my nine urban. Major League Baseball and so.

But simply a spring training no ripe for everybody really excited you know start and is seen in a new day. The guys that are you know are receptive and early rates. Do whatever they need to get to this dubious group making up thirty year so it's a great. So how are the Dodgers looking for this year. Well at every year the last probably 67 year court against carpet but. You know but let's go to World Series B yeah search we can't quit Butler. And I think is more the same this year you know.

You know he's pretty good friends with though with the woods that's starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw on their pretty good friends and and he says he's gonna miss that whole organization. And he went on to see what a class act from the top to the bottom the Dodgers are. Yeah when Murray is specifically he was.

And while I was there are the gospel for the very first time and that the sports context and so kind of sealed every. Yes understanding your also understanding that I had to battle. A preconceived ideas about religious people are urged people or whatever. You know the current collector. Respected but far from reality of our lives and our product. But both guys are lightning and dies where I wanted to be one day. You know aryan bibles. And preach the gospel and other people right or they word. Excited about this and excited about sports in the I was. In the midst of a situation where lives were on the part about current MacBook sleep at night nobody knew it out of our athletes with today's split.

On it and then amount of work that that pastor Chan in his his team that they're doing is is incredible we're gonna get into some of that. But to welcome back to a pastor Chad Johnson he I think he's so what's your testimony that first segment was powerful and Anne and I really appreciated. And I wanted to talk a little this segment about how you got into it to work with Major League teams. And an NFL teams but I need to read. I do some research on pastor Chad. The first stop her grappled won the articles I read says this. I found out about shot past chair Johnson last week when asked. Steelers cornerback Kevin Faulk journey interview who would who made the biggest impression on him within the steeler organization. I was dreading transcribe it from there namely team spirits and Cameron Heyward even Mike Tomlin instead I found myself saying wait who. The person who's made to visit the biggest impact and fought so far is Chad Johnson's team chaplain. What a great first pure crap I've read that that shortly rhetoric the rest of the article because of that paragraph. And and I think that says a lot about the worked Richard do we wanna talk a little bit about. How you got involved with with the Steelers who Dodgers and with professional athletes. Yeah. But it's pretty accurate in I that the less they. Senator. They've been great news gazette or that all of that spot cancer he he would never got or got all there and search in my life. And I just go cart and the sport are 020. Everything that I knew better outcome for all. And. Eluded him because while I was playing sports we're or their workers university and while I was there ought to an inner city church. Irving. With the young people. And I continue to serve with us person out. In the interests of the art was what I call it metro representatives. Like a chaplain. At eight about 22 when he won and so about twelve high school teams. In the inner city of Phoenix and kind of learned how to do this. You know child by year art that type of crash course but when she had brought up in that and it resists it was an amazed me experience and so I'd love their. And there's a guy who got the job there on the cardinals. The name in a hurry on to a degree battery last year great. An armed man Herndon. Then he got Julia and her long. The. He's recovered or in this iteration. In the years and you're white or Minnesota Vikings what I remember most being a packer fan. We used to you know pack he's taken to twice a year at I think that's how app that I've got a court her boy what a heck of a man he was. Yet very. You heard the one.

Sort of a passport might it then this morning we are taught for twenty minutes early but brought your beat and Archie faster. And I can press the wrong kind of spotter I'm to only. Couple few months short of being what you or your soul. And it worse but but well you know me and yeah yeah I sure did it all. When he added that the tradition and or year or nine years is incredible. Credible. First my very first shot though the army. There are out on sale. At cork on the team that.

Is really doing some great work him. And the website gives you an idea some of the Celtic they're doing. And I just really impressed. Check it give me if you can't kind of background that how you started and in being the founder of elevated international how that thing kind of started. Yeah definitely. Recruitment during rare. You know I'm not quite. Oh Malta on Colorado. And I got started there. But that year and it's Phoenix and our work order review there is cool and I'll. Probable who you know take them. Maybe not so so. And think that people predict. You're in that way but but a bonfire and tyranny. Quote at heart of course her for young people on the court and I. You know with with my testimony now respect what apple about Stanley in my parents who think that nature are a lot of broken and we and so. That are. You know our compassion and sympathy empathy. For a lot of younger and currently there I would be you know cold that your we're. Seeing an element here. Go right into their lives and so on we started. So the international on the you'll early. Then from the X. Spirit that I got from camp that's CA camp as a seventeen year old. Student you know athlete who had. His life broken into pieces and you know and I'm looking at these kids with the same scenarios since they have handled it is to return life to it so Michael just to create. An experience certain place where they can also. At the same type of experience and life changing experience that I had as a as a teenager and so that would cut out. Talent out more than we would execute the awareness of the starters pitching out originally. We take inner city kids the way. You know what 34 days and get away from their distractions and religious. You know coupled with ending their in their problems minister to their hearts really relate to. And it was a natural interaction between my two worlds like sports world. And athletes work wouldn't and that is that I work with in the inner city so many of the guys in the locker room were also. You know that was kind of their profile or their breath background where their heart so. It was called for me Tbilisi athlete also tightening in opening. Reach these young people so that China has started. Yeah agenda so is that a I mean you have a facility there and didn't do the kids come into the so damning you have a Jim what's I mean. All fields without it you have silica. No but we do we've we run and so we we partner where it's it's organizations and and really the city of Phoenix. Four. We use city facilities and we do we have a young man's mentoring program. We have a young women mentoring program. We have in school of business and entrepreneurial support retreats to. These young kids from their urban community to learn you know the value of cash in the value of business and how to start a business. It's that spirit of fun journey and then we have a leadership program we also have at bats program called that zone. Are that the programs in the work in incursion. But they had to get involved in the its lies because what I've seen in the in such an urban community. You know the next biggest problem that's not knowing the lord. It's these these kids that have been bad. And assists for the debate issues that group still pro mattered to so fast and so. It's overwhelming but we say also no one by the time this started with our dental program the same day we wanna create a a space. And the time. On this can do censored stats to be able to really connect with their kids are and not just dads and uncles are. Nephews. Nieces or mentors and their panties you know just just so really. Encourage positive male interaction with these young people. And of course we do camps we do we boot camp and summer for our youth we just got back from our young adult. And I can't that we do as well so there's a somewhat different but at that can happen within over internationally yet so a couple of. Here we really do pest Chad pastor let me ask you this I've I've coached basketball different areas here and in this city Milwaukee. And I know you going to this some neighborhoods in some communities. As as as that white basketball coach it's hard to it's hard to keen trust. In that community. Until like you don't till I show that look I'm not going any work. And when I tell you that that we are practice at 7 o'clock we have practice at 7 o'clock it's not 715. It's not 7:18. We started 7 o'clock. And think consistency. Is is the key to this. And when you tell these young people something whether it's it's acute from the suburbs your kid from either from the inner city. You have to as an adult you have to follow up on that if I tell a player that number to call on the 715. Tonight to talk about playing time. I don't call him at seven tent and I surely don't call home at 735. I call him at 715. And I think that teens there trust Howard you were able to key in the trust of would be such a young guy in the beginning. In the in the city of Phoenix. Yeah I think you're content to think things are I was gonna say that very thing. I think it just entry. As you know Paul and the white kid from Colorado. And you know I'm single. Not married never indicated. On the but I have thousand. He would mainly. You know African American kid that called me pot you know you. It was because. They. Baseball consistency. You know and that was the main thinker first. I could tell him like I would let them call me there watching our local club record I'm not a fair and their partner can't. You know our kids people I don't wanna circular that that respects good. We're gonna compete here until liberal and call me either because. We'll look at nuclear arms committee a political thing they've got little. You know. That was just a really addicting thing in the very honoring king spoke. I've been able have to swallow for like it was so many young people. Laugh and now grow in that are for rent is normally 39. Saw. It shed one and one thing it just analysts think it's that. I try to verbalize. You know the folks is if you're gonna impact people yet to be able to connect with them. And distant visiting with you and CN. You know what what does been allowing you do he sake union as a connector I mean I can just LP in these his wanna be around especially zirconium pops. And god she's in yet today impact on you know for for the warden and for. His kingdom. And I was glad to hear you say that now finally get convicted that and say you you and calling them because we talked to Mike in many college coaches. Either football or basketball who said. There more than just a coach now. There they're they're actually almost like a father figure in many cases. And you you know you've been coached in high school ball for a long time like in and you you've probably been seen on high school level. And and so were really chant it it is easier you're the one guy has put their life that they're that they're gonna find stability. And they're gonna find guidance. And even discipline at times you know to do the right thing. Are yeah it's been I mean it's just been incredible for the first incredible honor. And it's an hour. HM let me ask you this is I know personally. It issue when windy and you're kind of like a coach for these kids I would I would think that. There are times when the kids that worry. On either coaching or your ministry to. They good on the wrong path. And it's all I'd for summer I take it really personal. And I don't know why take it is personal as I do are you able to edit. I'm not take it so personal when when when something like that happens. I don't outlook saying no I mean out saying yeah there are no better but it. I reaction that we don't know that the easiest and provide for these errors. In ladies and it's oh man you're so close you know and I think that's literacy goes sometimes you know are not any different at all thinker qualified to. They feel would say it's to be real ministry. Let you know aside you know there's been a lot of circumstances where. I got the rootkit what article sit down and stressed that you know the singular moment that I welcome back. As a youth pastor for about twenty years Chad you know kids are dying for you go lesser bowl games. And or are where where where I would allele watching game. And then I would see the you know they they they kind of quit on their team you know the more shake hands after the game you know. And and there are some there I just since they got to give me some opportunities ago. Don't try to help them through this that I harbor which are dug around my guess initially when I see it it is like my heart was saying I'm liking count in the tin it's an area so I'll I'm sure you know you you have those opportunities is going on watching their games and and get with a mentor specially as an athlete even though probably tell on Hank. In mr. crossover lower whatever but you that your your your aorta dad you're all and it was them. Now you wonder at any pets judges see you know that. That pastor Ken he doesn't talk to these kids about the cross over the easiest time in spite she jumps up.
