The world says 'sport is a man's world. Isn't this also true of Christianity? Many see it as a patriarchal religion which also sidelines women, hindering them, holding them back.

But no - let’s talk about a man who broke through cultural stereotypes. About a man who valued women more than anyone in that culture - or even our culture, could ever have imagined.

Are sport and faith connected? Where is God in your sport? The Bible says that God made you in his likeness, and created you with gifts to be creative on the pitch as you play. Jesus promises to go with us always as we go to the world of sport - will you worship him as you play?

We all get disappointed in our sport don't we? Whether it's from injury, loss of form or not being renewed for another year, sport is full of lows, probably more often than the highs.

So we've got four-time Olympian Debbie Flood, and two-time Winter Olympian Adam Pengilly into to chat about their experiences of facing huge disappointments in their sports, and how they've come to process them and now help others do the same.

As it's the Christians in Sport podcast, our overarching question is how can we navigate disappointment as a Christian in the world of sport? What comfort does God offer to those struggling?

Listen in to this really useful interview for all sportspeople.

One of the most common themes in the Bible is struggle. For Christian athletes, that means you’ll need grit.

Can you be a Christian and an elite athlete? That’s the question we’re asking on this new podcast. Having met a series of elite sportspeople over the course of the year, we now discuss this key issue that comes out of many of the interviews. Maybe it’s something you’re asking yourself as you seek to follow Jesus or are considering doing so?

In this episode, Danno chairs the discussion as former Olympic rower Debbie Flood and ex-Premier League footballer Linvoy Primus explain how they realised that it was possible to combine elite sporting performance and Christian faith. Both Debbie and Linvoy are honest about the battles they faced in following Jesus at the highest level of sport, but they’re in no doubt this was what God called them to do and not only that – He enabled them to shine for Him.

During the podcast, we hear clips from previous interviews with wild man turned rugby coach Chris Jones, ex-England women’s hooker Ann O’Flynn and Paralympic sprinter Niel Louw. Each pose key challenges for elite sportspeople, in particular, and get our panellists reflecting on their own experiences.

Listen to this gripping podcast as the panel talk about:

Why do people say Christians should give up sport (2:50)
How God uses every situation to transform us (4:10)
What it means to play for God’s glory (5:30)
How a referee’s warning to calm down felt like a message from God (6:50)
Using sporting gifts for God’s honour, not our own (13:00)
How it is that we can worship God, even at the highest level of sport (17:20)
What it means to play hard, but fair (22:50)
Learning to see your teammates and rivals as God sees them (25:20)
Reacting in faith when you ‘blow it’ (26:20)
How faith in Jesus made a real difference (29:30)
