Ed Young Welcomes Military Hero Chris Kyle


Pastor Ed Young welcomes American Sniper author and military hero Chris Kyle to Fellowship Church.

Fellowship Church is hosting a special 4th of July event June 30-July 1.

Grapevine, Texas, June 22, 2012—

Ed Young and Fellowship Church are known for big events, and this 4th of July is no exception.  As part of this Independence Day weekend event, called Freedom Experience, Ed Young will be interviewing Chief Chris Kyle, decorated military hero and author of the New York Times best seller American Sniper.

With a documented 160 kills, Chief Chris Kyle is the deadliest sniper in American history. Chief Kyle, a Navy SEAL and the recipient of five Bronze Stars and two Silver Stars, served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and elsewhere.  While serving in Iraq, he earned the nickname “Al-Shaitan Ramad” (translated The Devil of Ramadi) from insurgents, but among his Navy SEAL team, he is known as “The Legend.”

Ed Young and Fellowship Church are excited to welcome this decorated hero on this special holiday weekend.  Chief Kyle’s story of family, country, and the cost of freedom is both interesting and inspiring.

“There is no better way to celebrate our country and honor those who have paid so dearly for our freedom, than to hear from an American hero who has been on the front lines,” says Ed Young, Senior Pastor of Fellowship Church.

In addition to this special guest, Ed Young and Fellowship Church will be having a huge outdoor, family-friendly event featuring a fireworks show over the lake behind the church, food and other outdoor activities. Food options include local vendors and food trucks, and several bounce houses will be on site for kids to play in.

The event will begin at 6:00pm, with the fireworks show starting at 9:00pm. The entire event is free and open to the public.
