First Baptist's Robert Jeffress may be the marquee name among Dallas evangelicals, but Jeffress has never brought a live lion to his Easter service, spent 24 hours with his wife in a bed on the roof of his megachurch, launched a blog doling out fashion tips to his fellow clergy or written a book titled Sexperiment. That was Ed Young, founding pastor of Grapevine's Fellowship Church, who did all of the above in the course of about four months this year. If such antics strike you as a desperate, toddler-like ploy for the attention, your understanding of scripture is woefully unsophisticated, because Young has the evangelical chops to back it up. He has a master's in divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, and his father helms Second Baptist Church in Houston, one of the country's largest. Besides, he's entertaining as hell.

Proud to be part of a church and have a pastor that reaches outside of the walls the way @edyoung does! He makes church fun (yes, it can actually be fun)...and without that kind of message, I'm not sure where I'd be today!

All one has to do is realize that @edyoung has positioned himself to be criticized, ridiculed, and shredded by the religious communitty as well as the anti-church folks, to see that what he does is a heart felt passion to creatively share The Truth of the life changing message of Christ. He stands in the middle of the road as a target of both groups for the sake of others. Good 4 U @edyoung, and good on you Fellowship Church for supporting him.

 @edyoung  is on a 'Hole Nutha Level! Nothing like using the creativity that God gave you to REACH the lost!

I couldn't agree more! It's refreshing to see a Church being creative and innovative in order to communicate what it believes to the world. It's also a class act move on your part to show @edyoung some props for the excellence that he and Fellowship Church use to spread the word. A great Pastor and a Great Church. Thank you!

@jefftruitt Ed Young is the Kanye West of Pastors. Each step is eye rolling, but when you look back collectively, maybe he is a genius.
