Why would a pastor want to be a UFC sports writer?
Ever since I started writing articles for http://www.cagepages.com (a widely utilized website focused on the news around the world of Mixed Martial Arts) I have had various questions about my involvement. So I thought I’d try and give a quick answer here for anyone who was interested.
A few weeks ago, I was offered a chance to speak to thousands of men who are fans of mixed martial arts. It is a volunteer role and only requires about an hour each week.
The primary fan of this new sport is young males between the ages of 18 and 40. I’m 37 years old myself. And I have always felt a special calling to reach the men of my generation. So this certainly seemed like a great opportunity.
The focus of my writing is on manhood, spirituality, parenting and marriage from the perspective of Mixed Martial Arts. Therefore, I write about things that have happened in the lives of different martial artists and utilize those opportunities to communicate truth to the men who are reading. It has been a real blessing so far.
The primary writer for the site is also the lead journalist for the Dallas Cowboys franchise. And because of his success in the industry, the web site gets quite a lot of viewing.
So far I’ve written about men being providers for their home and just today… I wrote about the way men treat beautiful young women. You should read the article. Its the second article at the top of cagepages.com right now… called “Captain America and Naked Women.”
I’m really excited about the opportunity to use my hobby to share the love and truth of Jesus with men across the country. Its been quite a blessing.
I’ll let you know how it goes in the long run.
