Ed Young welcomes Debbie Lee, Gold Star mother of the first fallen Navy SEAL in Iraq, Marc Alan Lee, for a special Memorial Day weekend experience at Fellowship Church.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Grapevine, TX, May 26, 2015-

Pastor Ed Young and Fellowship Church welcomed Gold Star Mother, and founder of Americas Mighty Warriors, Debbie Lee for a unique weekend service honoring the fallen men and women who have perished in the line of duty. In anticipation of Memorial Day, Debbie Lee spoke about the loss of her son, Navy SEAL Marc Alan Lee, and her desire to serve other families who have experienced similar losses. 

In the words of Fellowship Church Senior Pastor Ed Young,

“Debbie Lee is an absolutely amazing patriot; and her son, Marc Lee, is a true American hero. To have her share her story and Marc’s story with our church not only reminded us of the cost of our freedom, but also challenged us all to continue to fight for the freedom we have and honor those who have gone before us. It is a true honor to be able to call her our friend.”

Debbie Lee founded America’s Mighty Warriors after her son Marc was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in Iraq on August 2, 2006. In Marc’s Last Letter Home, he asked for friends and family to “pass on the love and kindness and precious gift of human life.” Since then, America’s Mighty Warriors has been fighting to support our troops, the fallen and their families and to work with like-minded organizations to do the same.

Fellowship Church is honored to serve the families of fallen military heroes alongside America’s Mighty Warriors by providing an annual week-long retreat at Allaso Ranch Retreat and Resort Center.

Fellowship Church services are free and open to the entire community. They are also streamed live each weekend at FellowshipLive.com. Times and locations for Fellowship Church weekend experiences can be found on the church’s website, FellowshipChurch.com.

Fellowship Church Commemorates 25th Anniversary with a Community-Wide Celebration … and Gives Church Attendees a Chance to Win $25,000

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ed Young and Fellowship Church hosts a community-wide celebration as they look back at 25 years of worldwide impact and influence.

GRAPEVINE, TX, FEBRUARY 24, 2015-

Fellowship Church has become one of the most attended, most influential churches in North America. What began in 1990 with a group of 30 families in Irving, Texas has grown into a church that embodies 10 locations internationally and welcomes thousands of people in weekly attendance.

This weekend, the church celebrates all that has happened over the last two and a half decades by uniting all of its Dallas/Fort Worth campuses at its central location in Grapevine for a church-wide event.

When asked about where the church is today, Pastor Ed Young says, “People ask all the time if I planned for Fellowship Church to look and feel like it does today. I tell them, ‘I’m the most surprised person here!’ When we began, our only goal was to reach people far away from God with a message of hope and healing, the message of Jesus. We didn’t know what that would look like 5, 15, or now 25 years down the road. What you see today and what we experience every weekend at our many locations isn’t because of anything we’ve done. It’s because of what God has done through us.”

The weekend celebration, which is a family-friendly experience, will include games, food, and some of the most creative elements the church has ever done. Also during each of the three weekend experiences, someone will have a chance to win $25,000 by making a half-court basketball shot.

“This is the most important weekend in the history of our church,” Pastor Young says. “Because of that, we’re pulling out all the stops! The creativity, the fun, the excitement will be on a level people haven’t experienced here before!”

What Would Jesus Say to Kim Kardashian, Ellen DeGeneres, LeBron James and Other Famous—and Infamous—Personalities? Pastor Ed Young Plans on Finding Out

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Pastor Ed Young of Fellowship Church launches a new series unpacking the words Jesus would share with some of culture’s most well-known and recognized cultural icons.

Grapevine, TX, January 4, 2013–  

Beginning January 5th and 6th, Pastor Ed Young of the multi-state Fellowship Church will begin a new series entitled, “What Would Jesus Say To…”  In this new series, Pastor Young will take an in-depth look at some conversations Jesus would have if he sat down one-on-one with celebrities like Kim Kardashian, LeBron James, Ellen DeGeneres and more.

While Pastor Young recognizes that it may seem presumptuous to claim to know what Jesus’ conversations would be, he said in a recent article with ChristianPost.com, “if you look at the Gospel to see Jesus’ interaction with people 2,000 years ago, it can be paralleled with the celebrities that we admire today.”

Celebrities are the center of so much of today’s culture, and that has been the case since the time of Christ. Because of that reality, Ed and Fellowship Church are confident this series will strike a chord with everyone attending.

In the Christian Post article Young says, “There have always been people who were more popular or better known than others,” he said. “The people who were well known were successful in business, or in the political or military slices of life. They had athletic competitions back in the day; they had beauty pageants, actors and acting. Maybe not to the degree we have now – due to technology, it is at a whole new level here.”

Experience times for the series are available on the church’s website, FellowshipChurch.com.

Pastor Ed Young Appears on Fox News to Offer Hope and Perspective in the Wake of the Shooting in Newtown, CT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Ed Young, pastor of Fellowship Church, reminds viewers of the presence of God in a tragedy like the shooting as well has hope on how we can move forward.

Grapevine, TX, December 20, 2012-

Pastor Ed Young of Fellowship Church appeared on Fox News this past Saturday afternoon to offer a message of hope and perspective on what is now known as the nation’s second deadliest school shooting.  Interviewed by America’s News HQ host Kelly Wright, Pastor Young spoke about this tragedy.

“It (the shooting) hurts the heart of God, it hurts our hearts, and I cannot even think about what people are going through, the families and loved ones of those little children and adults who were taken. And you know, the question is ‘Why?” And that’s a tough question.” explains Young at the beginning of the interview.

When asked about the President’s use of Scripture in his own response to the shooting, Pastor Young said, “I think it was awesome for him (President Obama) to quote Scripture. And that’s what we need to do. We need to be in prayer… and we have to realize too that those little ones are in heaven with the Lord himself.”

Pastor Young goes on with a word of hope for our country and an answer to the question, “Where was God in this?”

Young said, “God’s always where he’s been.”

In the interview, less than a day after the terrible incident, Ed Young reminded people of the need to not blame God, but instead to turn to him for healing. “We have to move, after this grieving period, from ‘Why?’ to ‘What now?’”

In a final statement of hope and perspective, Young made a reference Romans 8:28 by saying, “And the Bible tells us that God will take even hellacious things like this and use those things for His purposes.”

The interview ended as Pastor Ed Young reminded viewers that the choices we make not only affect ourselves, but also others. The complete interview can be seen on the Fellowship Church website.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Christian Life Ministries is using Elevate’s E Leadership program to train up the next generation of leaders in Uganda.

GRAPEVINE, TX, NOVEMBER 05, 2012-

Fellowship Church, lead by Pastor Ed Young of Grapevine Texas is excited to announce that they are providing Elevate to Eve Senyonga from Christian Life Ministries tools and curriculum to support children’s character training in a Ugandan orphanage this summer. As the country’s economy slows and HIV rates rise, the need for future leaders is great. According to UNICEF statistics, the percentage of children who attend primary school drops from an average of 82% of the population to 17% attendance in secondary school. Christian Life Ministries wants to change that statistic.

“We want to partner with Christian Life Ministries in Uganda because we believe in what they are doing. We believe that every child can be a leader, no matter their age or background,” said Pastor Mike Johnson, Executive Producer of Elevate.

Elevate sent the E Leadership Program, complete with leadership videos, study questions and awards, to be used at the school orphanage run by the Christian Life Ministries (CLM). This school, unlike other orphanage schools, is also open to children in the community. The CLM currently provides schooling for over 900 Ugandan children. Children will watch the leadership videos during their morning assembly, and get the chance to put the leadership principles into practice throughout the week in their classrooms.

“I’m so excited for them to get this character training in their lives and develop them into leaders,” Senyonga said.

CLM’s vision is to transform these kids into the future leaders of Uganda. “When someone told us about this program developing the characteristics that we want these kids to have, we were so excited. This is what we’ve been looking for because we’ve been doing all the other things you should do for children, but have been having challenges developing their character. So this leadership program is going to help us achieve our goal,” said Eve Senyonga, Co-Founder of Christian Life Ministries and Orphan Director.

Ed Young Discusses Sex and Intimacy in Newest Book

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pastors Ed Young and Lisa Young tackle difficult subject in newest book.

The Texas and Miami-based pastor Ed Young discusses sex and intimacy in New York Times best-selling book “Sexperiment.”

Grapevine, TX, August 1, 2012-

In their latest book SexperimentEd Young and Lisa Young tackle a subject that is thought a lot about, but that we don’t often think deeply enough about—sex.  Specifically, this book looks at the power and purpose of sex within the context of marriage. Through this book, readers discover the blessing and design of sex done God’s way. Because when sex is thought about the right way, couples can discover how to do it the right.

As Ed Young plainly states it, “Sex is between the ears before it’s ever between the legs.”

But cheating has become more and more the norm, as companies are profiting by making a business out of what has been in the past almost inexcusable behavior.

As website founder and owner Noel Biderman has stated in the past,“More couples fighting over finances and unable to afford divorce, they look to stray. The entrepreneur said starting his web site was a business decision because there is a marketplace for the service.”

Even with the decline of happy, healthy marriages, Ed Young believes that so much difficulty in a marriage is a result of an intimacy issue between couples, and that a healthy sex life strengthens the bond and increases communication. “Sex isn’t just physical. It’s relational, emotional, psychological and spiritual,” says Ed Young.

Sexperiment (Faithworks/Harper Collins) is the newest book from Pastors Ed Young and Lisa Young. Other titles by the authors are available at CreativePastors.com.
