Here's a surefire method for attracting Easter churchgoers: Have Tim Tebow speak at your service.
The New York Jets quarterback drew 15,000 people to Celebration Church's Easter on the Hill prayer service in Georgetown, Texas. Pastor Joe Champion interviewed Tebow for twenty minutes before his main sermon.
"In Christianity, it's the Pope and Tebow right now," Champion said while introducing the football star. "We didn't have enough room to handle the Pope."
So, what did the devout Christian superstar have to say to loyal fans?
"It's OK to be outspoken about your faith," Tebow insisted while addressing the large crowd.
Certainly words the quarterback lives by! Tebow never shies away from talking about religion—he's even made the ‘Tebowing' prayer pose a popular sideline staple.
The athlete also admitted he's proud of the attention ‘Tebowing' has garnered because it means people are talking about prayer, "It's being talked about," he said. "That's exciting."
As for what needs to change in America?
Well, Tebow has answers on that as well, "First and foremost is what this country was based on: one nation under God. The more that we can get back to that," the quarterback insisted while drawing applause from the crowd.
Although the sexy football star was all smiles at the service, he did have some criticism for other athletes who claim they are not role models, "Yes you are, you're just not a good one," he retorted.
What a special Easter service for fans of the hunky role model!
No word on how many stuck around for the sermon after Tebow finished speaking.
