Tim Tebow Delivers Easter Sermon
The New York Jets NFL star is set to bring a little extra Easter cheer to Georgetown, Texas this Sunday when he delivers the holiday sermon at Celebration Church. In preparation for the athlete’s weekend talk, the church tells local news outlet KVUE that they will erect bleachers outdoors on its 60-acre grounds to accommodate an expected crowd of 30,000.
“Obviously it’s our Super Bowl,” pastor Joe Champion told KVUE in Austin. “Easter is the resurrection of Christ, which we celebrate in our faith. We feel like it’s going to be a testimony to the community. We want it to be a family event.”
Set to speak for 20 minutes at the 10 a.m. service, Tebow, 24, was not originally scheduled to chat with parishioners on Easter Sunday, and pastor Champion is unsure as to why his church was chosen as the one Tebow would visit.
“There will be the sacredness of Easter. It’s not a Tim Tebow show,” argued Champion. “It’s not about a celebrity. There’s really only one celebrity that we are going to honor and highlight.”
