On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Dr. Evans about his work with the Dallas Cowboys, how he got started in sports ministry, where the state of faith is in the NBA, the biggest spiritual battles athletes face, and the church’s role in the current climate that we live in today.
One of the most dangerous things as a kingdom disciple is to think too highly of yourself. Yes, God may have chosen to bless you or raise you up, but that’s because He wants to use you. The moment He discovers He can't use you for His kingdom purposes, He can replace you.
