AUSTIN, TEXAS – Want to hear Easter Mass from the man formerly known as the Mile High Messiah? You’ll have to fight to get a good seat because Tim Tebow’s Easter service at the Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, is expected to draw more than 30,000 people.
The Denver Post reports that Tebow is scheduled to speak during the Easter service this Sunday at the Texas church.
Joe Champion, who founded the church in 2000, said:
“As the son of an NFL coach, and also someone who came to know Christ thanks to two NFL players who were willing to share the Gospel with me, I am extremely excited to have Tim Tebow with us this year. We believe this year’s service will impact the lives of those who would never enter the doors of a church.
The Celebration Church’s Easter Sunday Service is called “Easter On The Hill” and is held on the sprawling 110-acre Westinghouse campus in Georgetown, TX. It is the first time the church has held an outdoor Easter service, according to a press release, and comes on the heels of the church’s 12 year anniversary.
Pastor Lori Champion said:
“It’s a great time to use the property that the Lord gave to us several years ago and it’s always been our vision to see people worshiping out on that hill. On the heels of our 12th year anniversary, it’s going to be amazing.”
Do you think Tim Tebow will be a distraction at the Easter service?
