Career Path Conversations with Gavin Peacock
As part of fdu’s Pathway Podcasts Series, we are in conversation with business leaders, talking about their distinct career paths, how they got to where they are now and any advice or interesting information they have for people looking to follow suit.
In this episode, fdu’s Jamie Surgenor chats to Gavin Peacock, ex-Premier League footballer – who scored over 130 goals for Queens Park Rangers, Chelsea and Newcastle United amongst others in a career that spanned over 600 games. After retiring from playing in 2002 Gavin worked for the BBC for six years as a football broadcaster/commentator on television and radio before entering full time ministry. Now he is an associate pastor at Calvary Grace Church of Calgary, and the Director of International Outreach for CBMW.
Jamie and Gavin discuss his interesting life path and the discipline and perseverance required to achieving success. If you like what you hear in the podcast, there’s much more in Gavin’s fascinating autobiography titled A Greater Glory: From Pitch to Pulpit.
