As one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, the Super Bowl MVP and two-time NFL MVP is a strong man of faith. He says he lets his actions talk about his beliefs. “My platform as a professional athlete gives me a tangible way to share my heart and faith.”

Rodgers grew up in a Christian home where his parents instilled faith in him at an early age. He asked Jesus to be his Savior when he was very young. When it comes to his upbringing, Rodgers said, “I grew up knowing what a stable relationship was by my parents’ example and how it centered on Christ. When our family had its up and downs, I knew my parents relied on God for everything and He always got us through those rough spots.

Although quiet about his faith, Rodgers says he wants his actions to speak loudly. “I feel like my stance and my desire has always been to follow a quote from St. Francis of Assisi, who said, ‘Preach the Gospel at all times. If necessary, use words.’”
