The Power of YouTube Packaging to Reach More People for Your Church

Podcast 378: Holy Scared with Jason Romano

The idea of a “sports ministry” may not be widely known, but it involves merging a passion for sports with the love for Jesus and His followers. This is what Sports Spectrum is all about – shining a light on the intersection of faith and sports. 

Sports Spectrum is an interview-driven podcast hosted by former ESPN Senior Producer Jason Romano. He came to realize that there were people doing his work, but for a greater purpose. This realization called him to start something similar, but for God this time.

In this episode of the Social Media Church Podcast, Jason Romano of the Sports Spectrum Podcast, shares his experience listening to God’s call for him to transition out from one job to another — one that involved his passion for both sports and for God.
