Darryl Strawberry Speaks at TRC JACK Weekend
During his 17-year professional baseball career, his record included honors like 4 World Series Titles, 8 National League All-Stars, National League Homerun Leader (1988) and 100 RBI Seasons 3-times over. Darryl Strawberry is in The New York Times top 20 as “one of the most favorite and famous celebrities out of the 100 most famous people in New York City.”
Today, Darryl’s purpose and passion is serving The Lord Jesus Christ by speaking a message of hope and helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel. "I was once very lost and tormented, but now I am found and free in Christ Jesus. I want everyone to experience the saving and transforming power of Jesus Christ." - Darryl Strawberry.
“Darryl Strawberry is a man who was running at the top of his game in Professional Baseball. He had it all: prestige, success, money and lost in many tabloid filled ways. Most men would have given up and accepted their lot in life.
“Today, with all of that behind him, Darryl shares his dynamic faith-filled journey of how God brought him through it all. We are so excited to have Darryl in our hometown of Monroe, WA, telling his story at our church on two occasions. He’ll be speaking to the men of our region on October 6th at 7pm. He returns again on Sunday morning when he’ll be speaking to everyone at our morning services. I don’t know about you, but I want a front row seat!” - Jeff Knight, Lead Pastor, The Rock Church
