NEW PODCAST: Léonce B. Crump, Former NFL player, Atlanta Pastor

THIS IS EPISODE 113 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

 

Léonce Crump Jr., is an author, international speaker and the founder and lead pastor of Renovation Church in Atlanta. In 2006, Crump answered God’s call to relocate from Tennessee to Atlanta and begin the process of planting Renovation Church. He details the obstacles he and his family faced and the revelations he uncovered during this process in “Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are.” A champion for the Church’s participation in focused and intentional cultural renewal, Crump is the leading voice of a generation committed to operating as God’s redemptive agents in the earth.

His unique background includes contacts from the world of professional sports and the music industry. At the University of Oklahoma, Crump was an All-American wrestler and defensive end for the Sooner football team; he went on to play professional football for the New Orleans Saints. He has been in ordained ministry for nine years and holds graduate degrees from the University of Tennessee and Resurgence Theological Training Center. He is currently a Master of Divinity student at Reformed Theological Seminary and a member of the Acts 29 church planting network. He and his wife, Breanna, reside in the heart of downtown Atlanta with their two daughters and son.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Pastor Crump about his sports journey, playing college football at Oklahoma, the temptations that come from being an NFL player, why he became a pastor and planted a church, and the biggest issue the Church is facing today.
