THIS IS EPISODE 190 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Reza Zadeh was born in Iran in 1977. He came to the United States in 1980 at the age of 3. Through his teen years in high school, he was focused on football and school, but it was during his time at Colorado State in college that he was first introduced to Jesus Christ.
Today, Zadeh is the chaplain for the Denver Broncos and working for Athletes in Action ministering to college athletes at various schools across the state of Colorado.
In Part 1 of our conversation, Zadeh shares his powerful testimony of coming to faith in Christ at college, why he came to the U.S. from Iran with his family, and why ministering to pro and college athletes is something he has a passion for.

In Part 2 of our conversation, Zadeh tells us what his Iranian family’s reaction was when they heard he had become a Christian, why community and establishing relationships with people allows us to share our faith, what are the biggest spiritual battles he’s seen athletes struggle with, and how he gets fed in his spiritual life when so much of what he’s doing is feeding others.
So proud of this guy and excited to see what the Lord does in and through him throughout the course of his life. @CSUFootball #edge #TearEmAssunder https://t.co/JwvPtbz4gp
