I'm sitting across from a man of God who is built different and that not is not just a description of him that's a description of the hottest new podcast out there by Zach Clinton, who just spoke a powerful message to budget college vessel players. Zach is good to have you and you thought my friend, thank you so much for having us do. I really appreciate it and that was a blast with Carolina University men's basketball set up what just happened. It will let Baller nation, John Perry, one or two ambassadors schedule over social you bumped into him at a big event.

John set the stage. What happened today how you meet is this wild man and how did he what would happen when you walk in that room and just leave these young men were just captivated by this powerful message about Christ and about life, about peace while I met Zach at ignite men's ministry and it was incredible to to connect with them, what awesome experience to have them come speak to the Carolina basketball team and and just leave the 5P's is a powerful thing to be patient in the process and have peace bye-bye basketball and also in your life back on the oysters were allowed restaurant and we knew it when you got heavy hitters like Jacqueline just to get them on your you got your roll tape when you can and is just awesome to have them on the show today I wanted to tell you where it will barbecue joint in North canonical little Richards and we just ordered some serious food. So when it comes out. We will in this is our awesome server. What's your first name and your national radio is selecting thank you. We love our server services Street read my limits limit you say what they we got to hear these folks. They are working hard to feed all of us. This whole covert seasons been nuts yes, but Zach, who is Zach Clinton and Zach Clinton. My ultimate thing is I'm a child of the King.

I've tried too many times to be a shepherd when I was created to BC this I heard some I tell me not to long ago. Ultimately, I am the son of Dr. Tim and Julie Clinton to people that I love more than anything and it was my parents. I grew up in a home very Christian based both my parents were heavily involved in ministry. Their entire life and is been a blessing just to learn and to grow and develop underneath them there. My best friends Ray I telnet all time. But with that comes a lot of different unique challenges pressures expectations that I feel like I was placed on myself. Naturally, other people, even every time I walk into a room. I thought it was the white elephant in the room right all these expectations I mean sometimes that can become daunting. So what I've had to learn in my own personal life is that I got to learn to step away from that and realize that my faith is not based on my parents, my identity is not based on my parents for my faith is something I've had a personalized and realize that I don't have to be the next best version of Dr. Tim Clinton, I could be the next best version of who God made me to be his Zach and so that's a little bit about me and what God's been teaching me from a young age all the way up to now 26 years old. Just trying to step into God's called me to be well and really didn't identity and meet John Perry Baller nation give a godly dad mentored me is been on the show before I have an amazing dad is been a mentor to me.

Your dad Dr. Tim Clinton entered all the semi. He's a guy we call for counseling startle ACC note associate Christian counseling was on the show recently or whatever the podcast because we had a show called counsel. Culture versus cancel: 11 and he did a great job title is test weight bragging about you, which he always does the job.

These guys are the Carolina University resources Tabasco coach. There an income check which ones are all there, but I tell you these guys are wound up and are made to the country and there's a mother next Wednesday when a daddy and then walks Zach Clinton in there's something powerful when you hold team has a sigh of relief and they feel connected deeper to Christ and his peace will what was it like for you to hear that message.

I was so impactful to me because as Zach and I were talking before he spoke of having a third-party common and speak to the team is so impactful because coach says the same things as Zach said of just persevering of being patient in the process and so it's is so impactful for our team and our players to hear that from somebody else and also from somebody else who has some credibility and has met the most successful athletes and sound that gives our players an ability to be like wow this Jesus can really impact me on the court and off the court. Zach Clinton national podcast producer talkshow host man of God Zach Clinton you are on the mound. You were there were those guys you just spoke to were you were throwing heat against Virginia Tech you are pitching throwing heat literally for the liberty flames four-year scholarship picture amazing.

I member when you pitched in the playoff game in Winston-Salem. I went in and in a hung out your data stands.

We watched you throw man is like wow that I don't want to be that catchers mitt when the twins asked rings at flaming heat for the liberty flames with talk begin there and looking at these young men who are there on the rise, but the world is to store all the stuff out you talk about a perfection success in winning, but tell us how you got where you are from be in the same spot. Absolutely no I think growing up and playing sports my entire life and really just trying to be as involved as possible in athletics. We live in a very performance driven culture and that's what I can always call comparison culture and perceived perfection is what is rooted in and so so often you know it's hard for us because we get lost in that entire idea and the entire concept of the so plan yeah it was fun just to be there to pour into these guys and to realize, yet they are in the exact same shoes that I've been I get what it means to try to perform infielders pressures and do all these different stuff and live for the results right because everyone admitted that we just want to win one half success, but finding identity in a word in something greater than a game and realize that you baseball bats possible. Whatever support your plan is supposed to be fun because it's not supposed to be who we are. We get lost too often on what we do and forget that we aren't good because we earn that title because God calls us good Zach Clinton talk about the build different podcast this thing is your environment and it's all over the place. Mike Segovia, a great guy, always getting on the ball court with him at some point these Baller we just don't have a sneakers everyone place you talk to big games like come on out and arguably bawling okay well will bring my sneakers. Zach, can you help us out with that talk about how this all came about what God is doing through this bill different why the name yet so you know it all started couple years back we been run and ignite men's impact. We can for quite some time now, and I started it with. I wanted to give the guys that come to that event something more than just like a spiritual high a leak in the year right because I felt like we all he did was it was it was an event that's all it is. I wanted to turn into a ministry where it was like something more than hey guys thanks are common will see you next year next March wanted to start a podcast and we can pour into their hearts bring hope and encouragement and motivation into their life. I'm actually started during the COBIT pandemic because I wanted to just spark some encouragement in those in the leaders in the homes and stuff like that, then eventually started working on a book for God placed in my heart and the title and the guide I'm co-authoring it with Ashley came to both of us and literally.

We had a phone call.

We both said the exact same thing unless God's place in my heart.

He said the same thing is that once your title bill different. What's your title bill different and so I said wow this is a God thing. And so as we keep writing and I said I want to switch the name of the podcast over to the build different podcast and I don't want to just reach the lives of men. I want to expand and interview women. I want to not only enter the interview them to hopefully reach and touch the lives of just as many as possible when it becomes outwardly going through thought or anything out there that's so needed. Zach, what is your passion will you say to people out there people are struggling. You're also a Christian counselor working on Dr. degree you're in front of young people all time you're in front of people struggle in their marriage. Can you give us some hope. Can you throw out a lifeline of people out there moving so fast.

Life coming out of fast. They're trying to fill that cup with everything but Jesus talk to us will quit you some hope you know I think the most common trauma research on that of failure and trauma has a way of re-triggering itself what the trauma then leads to is to prone this is what we call it skill proneness and the shame proneness. That's what I've been doing a lot of stuff it into often the white guilt means that we place the emphasis of the focus on the negative behavior so I feel guilty for doing something wrong. I feel guilty that I just struck out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

I feel guilty that I made that mistake and hurt my wife puts the emphasis on negative behavior. But what shame does is it places the emphasis on self and so when you fail and you make a mistake when you slip up.

What happens is that we tend to often identify with that failure and then we become the failure and that's what a lot of people you know when I sit across from him in sessions. Their living lives of desperation and shame. But what I kind of my messages that time does not feel all women's Jesus does.

We forget that we try to reach for anything to be abandoned in our life. When Jesus is the great physician. He's the one that's there for us that really bring that truth and hope and healing into our lives and so also that's were trying to do ACC in my counseling career in Christian counseling is just point people back to the truth of God's word and understand it is by his grace and his love and truth.

That is something that we could never earn an S. The beautiful thing about is that when God shall meet us exactly where were at.

But then his love is so powerful that it won't let us stay there and so just jump in on God's train at the end of the day letting him lead and guide our steps were super grateful for this Lynchburg boy to come down to North Carolina were given some good work on a barbecue right varnish in our area.

It's the real stuff their battery more out and we are were grateful, jealous, real quick. Zach, thanks for sure with that basketball team we know life is changed.
