Fellowship Church to Attempt World Record with a 17,000 Square Foot Chalk Drawing of Jesus


Ed Young and Fellowship Church will be attempting to set a world record as children and adults work together to draw the world’s largest chalk portrait of Jesus.

Grapevine, TX, April 14, 2014-

On Wednesday, April 16, the parking lot of Grapevine-based Fellowship Church will become the world’s largest canvas. In preparation for their Easter church experiences, Fellowship Church is attempting to set a world record for the largest chalk drawing of Jesus ever done.  

Beginning at 7:00am, participants can arrive at the church’s Grapevine location and begin coloring in a 17,000 square foot portrait of Jesus. The event is open for anyone to participate. When participants arrive, they will be given chalk and can begin filling in the color-by-numbers-type portrait.

The portrait, based off an original painting by Senior Pastor Ed Young, fits into the theme of Fellowship Church’s Easter experience this year, “The Art of Easter”.

Pastor Young says, “­­­­­­­­­­­­Easter is always a time of celebration, reflection, and renewal. This giant chalk drawing on our church’s parking lot is just a great way to connect with so many people and to remind us what this week is all about. We’re excited to do this as we attempt to make history by pointing to the greatest story in history!”

In addition to the giant chalk drawing, the church is also planning another community-wide event later in the week as it hosts the 2nd annual “Good Friday in the Park” at Klyde Warren Park.
