By saying “yes” to God and being willing to shelve his football career before it began, Derek Carr has been able to combine his passions of ministry and football. On a recent episode of “The High Note” podcast, the Las Vegas Raiders quarterback opens up about the blessings that come from hearing and obeying God. The 31-year-old All-Pro athlete also tells host Tauren Wells, a Christian musician, about the challenges and blessings of living for Jesus in high-profile secular setting.
As Church Leaders has reported, Carr is an outspoken Christian known for sharing the gospel with strangers—including at a Chipotle restaurant in San Francisco. He also once shared a message that helped prevent three suicides.
