Jesse Bradley: A journey of faith and adoption

Read more

Jesse Bradley comes on the podcast to discuss how life's twist and turns lead him to a journey of faith and adoption. Jesse was once a professional soccer player, whose career was cut short when a medication he took to prevent malaria built up toxic levels in his system, and he became too sick to play. Jesse later discovered god and became a pastor. He now leads a city wide movement for churches to become more multicultural. Jesse preaches to his congregation the need for people to open their homes to foster youth, and adoption. Jesse discusses his own journey with adopting his youngest child, and what adoption has meant to him.

How to Find Faith, Pro Soccer Player turned Pastor, Jesse Bradley

Read more

Jesse Bradley was a self-defined atheist from a family full of non-believers and mixed faiths, as a kid.  He dreamed of being a professional basketball player, but it never happened. He did, however, become a pro soccer player.  He also almost died, when soccer took him to Zimbabwe, where he was tutoring students as well. What he never imagined as a kid is that he'd end up a pastor, leading others with his strong faith. We talk gratitude, encouragement, faith and overcoming the hard knocks of life and growing as a result of them. 


“Sometimes the greatest blessings and experiences in life are things that you didn’t plan or never seen coming,” (02:42). They’re seasons in your life when you just feel like you’re doing the right thing, you’re in the right spot, it’s so fulfilling, and that’s where I feel like I am right now, (03:53). “I think honest, humble conversations are so positive, I think in our country right now, being able to disagree and still love each other that’s something we need to enter into because whether it’s political or spiritual it’s important that we understand each other, value each other can go deep and still respect our differences,” (12:33). And that’s how it is in life with “NO”s, a door closes someone sees something in you a talent, or an ability comes alongside enters the picture and in your radar, (20:16). When that alignment from heaven, other people, and doing what you’re made to do, your heart can feel the healing and that’s when your healthy and persevering, (29:49). Being sincere is not enough, it has to be true and real, (37:46). The truth hurts but that’s when growth happens, the revealing happens before the healing and without the revealing there’s no healing, (39:10). For anybody going through a career shift or transition, start by looking for things that seem interesting to you, (40:33). Sometimes in our lives we’re going to have to make some sacrifices, however you could find the greatest joy and be at peace, (47:44). The word “NO” actually means it’s time to look for the best opportunity and time to get on your knees and start praying, (53:50). Rocky is a movie that stands out to me the most because of his perseverance and if I could tell the younger version of myself something it would be to not take myself too seriously, and have reassurance in God’s love, (57:03).
