People often ask me what I most miss about playing professional football and they are surprised when I don’t say “playing!” I had a long and blessed career and God has now placed a specific call on my life as a minister of the gospel ( I currently serve as Home Missionary Pastor at a church in Calgary). But there are two things that I tell people I miss. One is being super fit. The other is being with the guys in that dressing room. There is something special about men gathered together and playing for a greater cause where the cost is high and the reward is great. As a pastor I have a burning desire to build men for the body of Christ.
During my upcoming ministry trip to the UK I have been invited by Steve Timmis to speak to the men of the Crowded House Church in Sheffield on October 17th http://www.thecrowdedhouse.org/, to the men of Beacon Church London on October 20th by Owen Hylton http://beacon-church.org/, and to the men of Cornerstone Church Liverpool on October 30th by Steve Robinson http://www.cornerstonechurchliverpool.org/ .
