In Your Corner is a 501 (c) 3 not for profit teaching ministry to help others do what they were put on earth to do.
Host Kerry Pharr is an author, inspirational speaker, and former professional boxing trainer devoted to helping others improve their lives by introducing them to his Lord and Savior. Kerry pulls no punches when he speaks of overcoming addictions and adversities, because his life was literally turned around by the power of Jesus Christ.
The victim of sexual abuse as a child, Pharr also grew up fighting with an angry spirit. A self-described juvenile delinquent, he found redemption in the awesome power of the Lord. He turned his fistic prowess into a successful career teaching young men to box. He rubbed shoulders with such boxing greats as Muhammad Ali, “Big” John Tate, Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas “the Hitman” Hearns and George Foreman.
Pharr became a beacon of light in a seedy sport that famed writer Jimmy Cannon once called “the red light district of sports.”Former lightweight champion Sean O’Grady once said that “Kerry Pharr is one of the good guys in professional boxing.”
In 1997 Pharr wrote the inspirational book Fight The Good Fight, which details his touching story of personal redemption and how he survived and even thrived as a professional boxing manager, trainer and promoter. He relates how he survived setbacks, tragedies and failures and moved on even while contemplating suicide after the death of his wife to cancer.
His life-changing work consists of a weekly TV show entitled In Your Corner, evangelistic outreach programs and motivational speaking on overcoming adversity. He regularly speaks to college students, civic clubs, business meetings and churches to spread the wisdom and power of the Word of God.
The purpose of the “In Your Corner” television program is to direct men and women to Christ through the unique and amazing testimonies of professional athletes, world champion boxers, veterans of war, and other men from various walks of life.
