Jonathan Evans is an NFL chaplain who leads with the invaluable experience of having been in the shoes of the players he serves. During his stint in the NFL, Jonathan played as a fullback. Now, he’s chaplain for the Dallas Cowboys and co-chaplain of the Dallas Mavericks, a writer, a speaker, a husband, and a father.

Jonathan’s experience extends beyond football: he’s also able to identify with those he ministers to due to his own deeply personal experiences of loss. In the last few years, he lost several close family members, and experienced four miscarriages with his wife Kanika. Going through the grief uniquely equipped him to write his new book Fighting Your Battles, which is available now.

In this episode of Trevor Talks, Jonathan shares endless pearls of wisdom that you won’t want to miss. He also talks about his history in the NFL and what it was like to come from a dynasty ministry family as the child of preacher Tony Evans.
