    Tim Tebow is scheduled to deliver a Easter Sunday speech this Sunday in Texas.

    Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is to speak to an expected 20,000 people at a Central Texas church on Easter Sunday.

    Tebow is scheduled to address the Celebration Church in Georgetown, north of Austin.

    Church spokeswoman Tara Wall tells The Associated Press that Tebow reached out to the church about a month ago and said he wanted to speak.

    People attending the non-denominational service will sit on lawn chairs and blankets. Wall said Friday about 1,100 volunteers are involved in running the event.

    Tebow  is well known for his strong Christian beliefs and often addresses religious congregations.

    Wall says Sunday's service will be like "an outside concert event."
