Tebow Talks Faith to Thousands at Vegas Church

Ad Feedback

These days it doesn't take much for NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to draw a crowd, and this past weekend in Las Vegas was no different. 

Some 20,000 fans stood in line to see the Denver Broncos star, this time off the gridiron and behind the pulpit at Canyon Ridge Christian Church.

About 4,000 people managed to cram inside the church's auditorium.

For 45 minutes Tebow spoke about his faith, how he seeks divine wisdom and words in every situation, and the playful teasing he takes from his teammates.

In a candid moment, he even took time to teach Senior Pastor Kevin Odor how to "Tebow" -- the one-knee prayer pose he's known for.

"I'm pretty sure I'm not the first athlete to get on a knee and pray," Tebow said. "It's funny, I've been doing this same exact routine for the last seven years and for some reason this was the first year that people started talking about it."

Tebow said he does the gametime prayers to humble himself and thank the Lord for each opportunity to play the game he loves.
