Who is The Evangelism Linebacker?

We've all heard about the Evangelism Linebacker and we've laughed with the videos, but who is this passionate Christ follower?

Derwin L. Gray, a man of great passion. For six seasons in the NFL he played with a contagious passion that led to two Pro Bowl nominations. Since his NFL career, he has communicated the Gospel of Grace around America and abroad with an intense passion that is both contagious and inspiring. Derwin is a 2004 graduate of the Billy Graham Institute of Emerging Evangelists and a graduate (with honors) of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he has been mentored by world-renowned theologian, philosopher, and apologist Norman L. Geisler.

He is now the Lead Pastor of Transformation Church.
