Former Liverpool Striker Roberto Firmino Becomes Pastor

Former Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has been ordained as an evangelical pastor at the age of 32. The Brazilian footballer announced the significant transition in his life through his social media accounts, marking a new chapter beyond his professional football career.

Firmino, along with his wife, was ordained at the church they founded three years ago in his hometown of Maceio. The dedication ceremony took place last Sunday, and Firmino shared a heartfelt message about his journey to this point. He mentioned that becoming a pastor was not an initial goal but rather a mission that emerged from his encounter with Christ.

“Since our encounter with Christ, a longing burns in our hearts… that people may know this love that has reached us. Now we have another responsibility… To be pastors according to the heart of God and to cooperate with the Kingdom,” Firmino stated.

Despite this new role, Roberto Firmino continues his football career with the Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli, where he played 34 matches in all competitions last season, scoring nine goals and providing seven assists.
