My Favorite Kansas City Chief
by Nathan Miller, Senior Pastor – Congregational Development
What a week for Kansas City! How fun it has been celebrating with our entire community! I want to tell you quickly about my favorite Kansas City Chief. It’s not Patrick Mahomes (shocking, I know). It’s Mitch Holthus, the radio voice of the Chiefs. I love this man so much and have such deep admiration for him.
Yes, he’s great on the radio! But more than that, I value his friendship, his leadership at Christ Community, his faith, and the beautiful ways he strives to connect his faith with his work. As one of our elders, I get to spend a lot of time with Mitch and he is one of the most tender and genuine people I know.
He’s spent the last several weeks on the global stage and has appeared in more than a few articles and posts. Below are a few highlights. May we all, in each of our roles, no matter how big or how small, connect our faith to our Monday lives a bit like our good friend Mitch!
“The thing that I love about the Chiefs Kingdom the most is how unifying it is. …You’ll have a person who lives in the inner city fist pump someone who is rural in the Midwest…The Chiefs Kingdom to me is the most unifying thing that we have in this region.”
“Make sure the light shining in you is brighter than the light that shines on you.” Chiefs radio announcer Mitch Holthus
