THIS IS EPISODE 290 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Simon Gühring is a six-time German national champion baseball player.
He was just the third German to sign a professional contract in the United States, where he played two years of pro baseball in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Following his time in the U.S, he played one year in the Netherlands and four years in South Africa. He then moved back to Germany and has been the German national team captain since 2004.
Off the field, Gühring helps coordinate our mission trips to Italy, Germany and South Africa as part of his work with UPI (Unlimited Potential Inc.) Ministries.
On this episode of the podcast, we learn about baseball in Germany and talk to Gühring about his pro journey, how he came to faith in Christ, how he lives out that faith as a German baseball player, and what Christianity is like in Germany.
The essence of sin is man putting himself into God's place. The essence of salvation is God putting himself into mans place.
