NEW PODCAST: Miles McPherson - Pastor, Former NFL Player

THIS IS EPISODE 150 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

 

Miles McPherson was selected in the 10th round of the 1982 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams. After being released, he was picked up by the San Diego Chargers, where he would play four seasons as a defensive back.

During his time as a player, McPherson became a follower of Jesus Christ, a decision that would eventually lead him to becoming a pastor. For the past 18 years, he has been the senior pastor and founder of Rock Church in San Diego.

McPherson is also author of the new book, “The Third Option: Hope For a Racially Divided Nation.”

On this episode of the podcast, McPherson shares his journey from football player to pastor, and coming to Christ during his playing career after being stuck in a world of drugs and addiction. We also talk to him about his new book, the segregation of the church, athletes using their voice to protest, and why honor is something that can help so many of us find common ground as we look to be united and not divided.

You can order Miles’ new book, “The Third Option,” here.
