Utah Jazz #26 Kyle Korver
Kyle had never heard of Seventh-day Adventists until his encounter with Sergio and I, and was only familiar with our unique Saturday worship (which really isn’t unique!) We had a little bit of time to share with him a more about the history and the current state of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Kyle was down to earth, casual, very cool, and very likable. Even under the lights and fame of playing in the NBA I can see that he is serious about being a Christian. But what impressed me the most was that he exhibited a spiritual maturity well beyond his 27 years.
I’m excited to have Kyle with us this Sabbath during our special emphasis on Christian Education and young people. I have no reservations at all about having him talk about what it’s like to be a Christian in the NBA and how he attempts live out his trust in Jesus in front of multi-millionaires on a regular basis. I think our students and adults will hear something that challenges them. I think that Kyle will be encouraging to all of us attempting to live out our faith in whatever context we find ourselves in. I hope you’ll take the time to come and hear what he has to say.
