Falcons’ Punter Bradley Pinion: ‘Release Children From Poverty in Jesus’ Name’

By Movieguide® Staff

Despite their disappointing season so far, Atlanta Falcons punter Bradley Pinion continues to preach the name of Jesus, on and off the field.

Pinion recently wore cleats championing Compassion International for the “My Cause My Cleats” initiative that the NFL began in 2016.

Pinion and his wife, Kaeleigh, support Compassion International’s mission to “release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.”

“We were pretty interested in partnering with them from the beginning,” Kaeleigh told AtlantaFalcons.com. “We knew we wanted to make a pretty big impact.”

“We fell in love with their mission and their purpose of spreading the Gospel across the world,” Bradley added.

As a result of their partnership, the Pinion’s have helped to establish two child development centers in Tanzania, which offer healthcare, hygiene training, educational assistance, mentorship, recreational activities and faith-based education for children.

“[Compassion] sent us over some reports to look at, areas that needed serving, the population there, the amount of children there who were malnourished or needed support and Bradley and I just felt a pull,” Kaeleigh said.

After the NFL season comes to a close, Kaeleigh said that her and Bradley plan to travel to Tanzania.

“We’ve been telling all of our friends about this specific center in Tanzania and trying to get as many kids sponsored as possible,” Kaeleigh said, “We just want to have the problem where the center is too full and we need to help raise money to get another one on the ground.”

Bradley often shares his faith on social media, quoting long passages from scripture. In 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Bradley pointed people to true hope and peace in Chrst.

“Whether something would go bad or something would go good, it’s been very constant, just very peaceful,” Pinion told Sports Spectrum in an interview from Jan. 2021. “With all the outside distractions, and there’s been a lot of them this year, just having that faith to fall back on is huge. Because if you don’t have that faith — and things can go haywire because you kind of lose yourself, you lose your self-awareness — you can be out of touch with God.”

“It’s one of those things where as long as you stay in touch with God, He’s going to take care of the rest. And that’s really just what I focused on, spending that extra time in the Bible every single day,” he added.
