“MORE THAN CONQUERORS”
Tustin: Showing their commitment to more positive faith-based programming, Paul Crouch Jr. VP in charge of programming, made good on his promise and moved forward on a new sports show called “More than Conquerors”. His announcement came after penning deals with Hosts Frank Pastore, (former Cincinnati Big-Red Machine pitcher), Leah O’Brien-Amico, (three time Gold Medalist in Olympic Women’s Softball), and AC Green, former LA Lakers, Phoenix Sun player and NBA Iron-Man.
“More Than Conquerors will fill a gap long left by shows that have not been in our line up for some time now. Meadowlark Lemon of the Harlem Globetrotters did a show for us that included interviews with different sports legends and it was fine for its day.” Said Crouch, “Our society, unfortunately, has placed a huge focus on athletes and their monetary gains. Images that today’s fans have of their sports idols are filled with sexual conquest, money, and fame. Unfortunately too many times sports lovers are let down by the humanity that fails the athlete when he cannot continue to portray a living ‘life model’ for success, and some athletes simply don’t want to be models. Our hosts and guests are all about setting the character bar higher. Putting conviction, character, and success on the back of personal integrity, adding that sports and success does not define who they are, rather it’s what they do.”
Interviews with guest include career highlights of performance, struggles, obtained goals, disappointment and loss marking their success with in their faith.
