New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow says he welcomes the attention to his Christian faith.

Tebow told about 15,000 worshippers at an outdoor Easter church service in Georgetown, Texas, that it’s important for Christians to be outspoken about their faith and for athletes to be positive role models.

Some at the “Easter on the Hill” morning service drove more 100 miles to hear Tebow speak. The service took on the feeling of a rock concert with more than 100 school buses shuttling people to the megachurch campus.

The service was peppered with Christian rock songs, and Tebow hit the stage to cheers from those who could see him while others watched on massive video screens.

Tebow sat for a 20-minute interview with the pastor, who joked, “In Christianity, it’s the Pope and Tebow right now. We didn’t have enough room to handle the Pope.”
