Chris Broussard, an ESPN analyst who came under fire last year for speaking out on openly gay NBA player Jason Collins, will join rappers Andy Mineo and MC Jin and television stars Mark Tallman and April Hernandez next month in NYC to share how they maintain an authentic Christian witness even in dark places.

The two-day event, titled “Leverage,” is being hosted by The Bridge Church, a Brooklyn plant preparing for its official launch on Easter Sunday. James Roberson, pastor of the new faith community, told The Christian Post that “Leverage” will highlight how influential Christians bridge what some might consider a secular-sacred divide.

“We wanted to gather people, leaders we feel that are penetrating the dark areas of society with the light of the Gospel by leveraging their influence. So we’re thinking rappers and journalists and actors, and these are generally dark areas, areas where the Gospel’s not going. We look at these [people] as missionaries. We feel like they’re using the light of the Gospel in areas a lot of people don’t go into,” explained Roberson.
