Matthew 11:29 says,

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Cleveland Browns Chaplain Robert Brooks, his wife April, and their five children

Cleveland Browns Chaplain Robert Brooks, his wife April, and their five children

But first, we want to introduce you to Robert Brooks, the Chaplain for the Cleveland Browns football team. Robert’s passion for people and sports is the avenue that God has used to call him and his wife April to serve Him through the ministry of Athletes in Action; the sports ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU).  He and April have five children, all under the age of 14.

Stand Up For The Truth is a radio and online ministry that covers news of the day, trends in the church and theological issues that Christians deal with and talk about every day, and we give you a place to be educated, equipped and connected to help you discern along the way. But most importantly, we point you to Christ Jesus as our Savior, and His Word – the Scriptures, as the truth that you can depend on. In fact, you should filter everything you read, hear and consume as a believer – including what you find on this program – through the Scriptures to see if it lines up.
