There's a lot of output yelled out yeah the only player Richard softball team and a more up front. I answered that because that's the gun. I got her random numbers go until we are too busy but look at this guy who DC and Los Angeles he's in Pittsburgh he. Words of pastor Jim do you located in Phoenix. Yeah right now I'm here for Orton. What a lot and that started during spring training which is this one of the most fun times of the year of course or we're not a policy that there are out right now for the right. Louise at thirteen inches of snow A instead you're about to get cut should not talk. Obama but to put you won the match you're going to benefit. And I still still no pay and net that's mikes so Mike's been a coach for like 35 years I did so it was just an example his coaching witnesses coaching style coming he is Debra are you talking and I remember. I still have a vice no forward for two days I don't want to talk about it it was it was bad gentlemen I think slow down there. It would hopefully you know bring in Anaheim angels I can't it's just kept snow and chatted the enemy there wouldn't stop by asking you know I'd look outside. It just slowed down Wilbon I'd go get a glass of milk look again it was like a blizzard. Man I'm telling you it good for you got a good friend you are. Good for sheer what a bush should be happy with the weather they win when your Downey spring training with the Dodgers to get a chance. Tick tick talk to these guys is it is it easier. On atmosphere for you to do would shoot which are looking to accomplish. Yeah I looked preparing. It's it's such a great time because obviously you know for baseball players. They're all over throughout the throughout the year under machine there never in the city. More than you know or are they usually and so on you know per return they're here referrals. 67 straight weeks. In that is really good because it in the routine you know court reporter receive an out of my fifteenth and in the NFL Burton in the NFL my ninth Irving. Ultimately baseball and so. You know there's quite. You know big differences. It's pretty big contrast and do sports but. But the or in the spring training no ripe for it and everybody really excited you know part of an NC in a new day. The guys that are you know are receptive in early rates that it. Whatever they need to get to this dubious group making up for the year so it's agree to our. So how are the Dodgers looking for this year. Well at every year the last probably expert in your work against that but. You know but what sort of World Series B yeah its image we leave it outlook. And is more the same this year you know. The great confidence. I think Robert is an awesome awesome it for mr. current great -- and so a lot of European Union court. Not to mention the silent in the air when the sun in the blue skies shall. Yeah helps them know you're there. Yeah you know we've had AJ Ellis on the floor you know he cut all the Dodgers for a for many years my Kino where he yeah yeah I guess is he's the only Major League Baseball player that comes north for the winner Connecticut. No merit to grow from here he said I look. I lover but I gotta I gotta come north for the winner doesn't make a whole lot of sense but I do and I have to do and he actually came its center studio with us. For an hour just a really good man walking worthy or I know that I read an article that when he got traded from the Dodgers she was sad that. He. You know he's pretty good friends with though with the woods that's starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw and there are pretty good friends and and he says he's gonna miss that whole organization. And he went on to see what a class act from the top to the bottom the Dodgers are. Yeah we're you know exit specifically he works. It was such a cool thing as a chaplain at Indy you know that now watches is growth and process development. You know out with a straight years and so are the chances you know bureaucratic. Go through that hole on the bubble you know on some are close enough that it ultimately. Backed down and back. Early in and get established over the last you know 56 years has been awful that it could happen to a better. Yet Chad he has one of the greatest stories that I've I've recount of the several times a phases zone that. They were planned. Giants and Buster Posey came up to the plate. And he said buster you know has a great love for the lord you said Clayton its pension and he said buster stepped in the box and he said I just say what you think about that study today in Romans will announce some. And Russert said yeah that's that's great and he's an inning as chase said that. He really went by and so he's tonight's this and what about what what what what are your thoughts there on Roman seventh. And he said AJ stepped how to box. And like Jimmy say. A jail talk I'll talk Romans with in a little bit there right now mirrored face on the best Major League pitchers and you know. Period amen and yeah she thinks that a I bundled then get ready.

On it and then amount of work that that pastor Chan in his his team. That they're doing is is incredible we're gonna get into some of that. But to welcome back to a pastor Chad Johnson he I think he's so what's your testimony that first segment was powerful and Anne and I really appreciated. And I wanted to talk a little this segment about how you got into it to work with Major League teams. And an NFL teams but I need to read on the idea do some research on pastor Chad. The first sub paragraph from what the articles I read says this. I've found out about Paris Chad Johnson last week when asked. Steelers cornerback Kevin Faulk tourney interview who would who made the biggest impression on him within the steeler organization. I was dreading transcribe it from there namely team spirits and Cameron Heyward even Mike Tomlin instead I found myself same weight who. The person who's made to visit the biggest impact and fought so far it's Chad Johnson's team chaplain. What a great first pure crap I've read that that shortly rhetoric the rest of the article because of that paragraph. And and I think that says a lot about the work that your doing. I wanna talk a little bit about how you got involved with with the Steelers who Dodgers and with professional athletes. Yeah. But it's pretty accurately. The last. In here. They've been great in his or that all that spot where he is never a perfect out there and search my life. And and I just go right back in the sport or 020. And that I knew their World Cup all. And. Eluded him because while I was playing for without call or workers university and while I was here all in the inner city church. Irving. Was he young people. And I continue to serve with Sosa person out. In the interests of the art as what I call it metro represented it's like to chaplain. At eight about 20/20 one to about twelve high school team. In the inner city of Phoenix and trying to learn how to do this.

That was great you can check out his work again Chad M Johnson dot com wanna talk this segment about elevated international. Dot org is is the website and elevated international. Is really doing some great work him. And the website gives you an idea some of the stuff that they're doing. And I just really impressed. Check it give me if you can't kind of background that how you started in and be the founder of elevated international call that thing kind of started. Yeah definitely. Recruitment during an air. You know I'm not like. Malta on Colorado. And I got thrown at them. A year and it Phoenix and there were ordered renewed vigor that Colin Powell. Google who you know take them. Maybe not so as soon as something that would people predict. You know release it and that would put on it aren't voluntary act. I vote at heart of course her for young people on the court and lie. You know what would like that's promoting no respect what apple about Stanley in my parents who think that nature are a lot of broken and we spoke. Her. You know compassion and sympathy empathy. For a lot of these young men and related. I would think you know court that your live in being an element here. Nobody in their lives and so on we started. Only international almost duels early. Saying from the experience that I got from. Camp that CA camp as a seventeen year old. Student you know athlete who had. His life broken into pieces and you know and I'm looking at these kids with the same scenarios and saying I know that exist in return life to and so Michael just to create. And experience there a place where they can also. At the impact that experience and life changing experience that I had as a as a teenager and so that would cut out Alan announced orbit we would execute the way of the started at the chain of originally. We take intercity kids a way. You know what 34 days and get away from the distractions in religious. You know Sokol was in the air in the their problems minister to their hearts really relate to. And it was a natural in connection between my two worlds like sports world. And athletes work wouldn't and that is work with in the inner city so many of the guys in the locker room were also. You know that was kind of their profile or their breath background and where their heart so. It was cool for me to build it seemed athlete also tightening in opening. Reach young people so that's China that's started. Yeah agenda so is that a I mean you have a facility there and didn't do the kids come into the silliman you have a Jim what's I mean. All fields without it what you have so is okay. Know what we do we we run and so we need a partner where it's it's organizations and and really the city of Phoenix. Four. We have a young women mentoring program. We have in school of business and entrepreneurial support retreat to. These young kids from their urban communities to learned of you know the value of cash in the value of business and how to start a business. It's that's been there before adjourning and then we have a leadership program we also have at bats program called that zone. Are that programs is a work in incursion. They had to get involved in its lies because we're watching Munich in such an urban community. You know the next biggest problem that's not knowing the lord. Is these these Kitna had a bad. And assists for the debate issues that we stand for matters to so vast and so. They're so little overwhelming but we say about it you'd also know about it. This we started with our capital program to say hey wanna create a let's face at a time. That's couldn't do censored stats to be able to really connect with their kids are and not just they had to uncles are. Nephews. Nieces or mentors and their panties you know just just just really. Encourage positive male interaction with these young people. And of course we do camps we do we boot camp every summer for our youth we just got back from our young adult. Camp that we do as well so there's there's a lot different but at the captain within over internationally yet checked up the works regularly. We are rarely do you pest Chad. Pastor let me ask you this I've I've coached basketball lot of different areas here in in the city of Milwaukee. And I know you going to lose some neighborhoods in some communities. As as as they're white basketball coach it's hard it's hard to keen trust. In that community. Until like you don't till I show that look I'm not going any work. And when I tell you that that we practice at 7 o'clock we have practice at 7 o'clock it's not 715. It's not 7:18. We started 7 o'clock. And think consistency. Is is the key to this and when you tell these young people something. Whether it's it's acute from the suburbs your kid from the U to from the inner city. You have to as an adult you have to follow up on that if I tell a player that number to call on the 715. Tonight to talk about playing time. I don't call him at seven tent and I surely don't call me at 735. I call him at 715. And I think that teens there trust how are you were able to key in the trust of would be such a young guy in the beginning. In the in the city of Phoenix. You know their I think on its thinking honest I was gonna say that very thing. I think in this country. You know Paul and the way it is problem Colorado. And you know I'm single. Not married there then it's. On. That I have thousand. Two years mainly. You know African American kid that called me pot you know and it was because. They've. Baseball consistency. You know and that was the main thing airport and chrome like or what little co leader on our global carbon. I'm not repair and there partner can't. You know I hit people who I don't want to circular that ever expect good. We're gonna compete here until liberal and are common there because. Well look the nuclear. Committing political thing they've got no. You know. That was just a really addicting thing and very honoring king spoke. I've been filtered have to swallow for like it was so many young people. Wept and outgrow in. Are for rent its normal nine. Saw. It shed one well one thing it just analysts think it's that. I try to verbalize. You know the folks is if you're gonna impact people yet to be able to connect with them. And distant visiting with UNC and you know what what does been allowing you do he's taken yet as a connector I mean I can just LP in these his wanna be around especially as a colony pops. And god she's in muted impact on you know for for the warden and four. His kingdom. And I was glad to hear you say that not filing a convicted that certain say you you can call them because we talked to Mike in many college coaches. Either football or basketball who said. They're more than just a coach now. There they're they're actually almost like a father figure in many cases and you you know you've been coached in high school ball for a long time Lichen and you. You've probably been seen on high school level. And and so really Chad it it is easier you're the one guy has put their lives that they're that they're gonna find stability. And they're gonna find guidance. And even discipline at times you know to do the right thing. Are yeah it's been a mayor has been incredible. For the incredible honor. And I'm. HM let me ask you this is I know personally. It issue when Wendy and you're kind of like a coach for these kids I would I would think that. There are times when the kids that worry. On either coaching or your ministry to. They good on the wrong path. And it's all I'd for summer I take it really personal and I don't know why take it is personal as I do are you able to edit. I'm not take it so personal when when when something like that happens. Well are. I don't I would say no I mean art's sake or there are no better but it. I reaction that we don't know that but I agree that it provides these guys. And ladies and it's oh man you're so close you know and I think that's literacy goes sometimes in our party and their wing panel thinker qualifier is. They feel the same it's to be real ministry. That you know so you know there's been a lot of circumstances where. I got the rootkit what article aground and stressed that you know the singular moment that I welcome back. As a youth pastor for about twenty years Chad you know kids are dying for you go lost the ball games. And or are where we're where I would allele watching game. And then I would see the you know they they they kind of quit on their team you know the more shake hands after the game you know. And there arson there I just since they got to give me some opportunities to go. Don't try to help them through this how are her.
