‘Pastor’ Tim Tebow To Preach Easter Morning Service In Texas
Crowds in excess of 30,000 expected
Tim Tebow will deliver the Easter sermon on Sunday at the Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, and the expected turnout is one more indication of Tebow’s enormous popularity.
The church told local TV station KVUE that it’s erecting bleachers on its 60-acre outdoor space for what it expects to be a crowd of as many as 30,000 people.
“Obviously it’s our Super Bowl,” said Joe Champion, pastor at the Celebration Church. “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.”
Tebow recently got a mani-pedi (first time I’ve ever typed that phrase) to get himself ready for the festivities, but Pastor Champion wants to make clear that it’s not all about glorifying Tebow.
“There will be the sacredness of Easter,” Champion said. “It’s not a Tim Tebow show. It’s not about a celebrity. There’s really only one celebrity that we are going to honor and highlight.” source – NBC Sports

Functioning more as an evangelist than a quarterback, Tebow brought revival to Denver and made John 3:16 one of the most re-tweeted topics since Twitter began at 9,240 tweets-per-second. So now he has been traded to the New York Jets and will be a daily fixture on the back cover of the News and the Post.
