Detroit Pistons’ Jaden Ivey Used His Postgame Interview to Share the Gospel

Detroit Pistons rising star Jaden Ivey wanted to make one thing clear in a recent post-game interview: “Jesus is coming back.”

Following his team’s victory against the Brooklyn Nets last week, where he scored 34 points, the 22-year-old point guard expressed gratitude for his success, attributing it to his unwavering faith in Jesus Christ.

“I give all the glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me these gifts,” Ivey said. “I sow the seed every day and just continue to trust God … to … grow my game.”

Before wrapping up the press conference, Ivey shared a message of hope, quoting John 14:6 and urging listeners to embrace their faith.

“I just want to say that Jesus is the way, the truth, the life,” Ivey said. “And to any of the world that’s hearing this message, the kingdom of Heaven is near. Jesus is coming back, and we all have to repent for our sins and we have to put our faith in Jesus.”

This isn’t the first time Ivey has spoken about his faith. In previous interviews and press conferences, he has consistently acknowledged the role of God in his life and career. He also isn’t the only young athlete speaking up about his faith. Orlando Magic guard Jalen Suggs has openly spoken about God’s goodness throughout his career, while New Orleans’ Saints player Demario Davis shared the miraculous story of God healing his daughter last fall.
