THIS IS EPISODE 474 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Matthew Barnett is the co-founder of the Dream Center in Los Angeles, a 400,000-square-foot hospital-like building that sits next to the 101 (Hollywood) freeway in Los Angeles. It houses and helps homeless families, veterans, kids who have aged out of the foster care system and need a place to live, victims of human trafficking, and people who have addictions, all free of charge.
Barnett is also a pastor and the author of the new book, “One Small Step: The Life-Changing Adventure of Following God’s Nudges.”
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Barnett about his new book, his experience running seven marathons in seven days on seven continents, hearing God’s nudge and voice, the importance of forgiveness, and how Kobe Bryant’s death has brought more people back to church in Los Angeles.

Just got first copy of my new book “One Small Step.” No ghost writer, no filter, just an honest look at the struggle to stay compassionate, the power of saying yes to more things in life, and the sacrifices to keep moving forward. This book deals with a lot of vulnerabilities in leadership, failures, and radical adventures like running the World Marathon Challenge. Also, the war to stay positive when years and years of ministry pick away at your soul. Definitely a different kind of book. Can’t wait for you to read it. Hope you still think I’m saved after reading chapter 1. Haha!!! April 7th release. Pre-order today if you want.
