VIDEO: Hands Held High - Chris Carpenter

“As I got into professional baseball I lost that,” Chris admits about his faith. “It was about the money, it was about the cars, it was about the fame… but I was never happy.”

In his pursuit of satisfaction, Chris let alcohol take over; extreme guilt and shame then followed. Letting these thoughts and habits control him, Chris found his life spiraling out of control. When one young, praying rookie joined the team and convinced Chris to join him for a charity golf tournament, Chris was confronted with the Gospel message once again.

Watch what happened Chris held his hands up to God in surrender and asked for help.
