Oakland Raiders starting quarterback Derek Carr shares the gospel to a packed house at Orange County First Assembly of God in Santa Ana, CA. The church looked like a silver and black Raiders pep rally with church ushers wearing Oakland jerseys to support the three-time NFL Pro Bowl player.
"I am very grateful to catch Derek's message. He definitely is an evangelist drawing football fans to the house of God. He really impressed me by giving all Glory to God while sharing of the love he has for his wife and two sons. He caught my attention by giving thanks for the mentors in Christ that raised him as a kid. The presence of God was very heavy during the service opening the door to lead NFL football fans to the Lord. Most of the fans admitted that they would not attend church if it wasn't for their teams' quarterback being at the Orange County First Assembly of God in Santa Ana. Local Anaheim Servite High School Football Coaches came to catch Carr's evangelistic message. It was truly amazing to see Derek Carr share, and even more amazing to see him taking his time to pray for the crowd leading many to the Lord. Special thanks to clothing line Validated Sinner for inviting my family to witness this miracle," reported Dr. Robert Ornelas former Vice Presidential Candidate.
