Tim Tebow, who has been open about his Christian faith , is planning to spread the word at a controversial Texas church.

According to the  First Baptist Dallas church's official website , Tebow is listed as a “special guest” for two services on April 28.

The outspoken New York Jets backup quarterback is scheduled to speak during the 9:15am worship and at 11am.

He will join forces with the church’s pastor, Dr. Robert Jeffress, who has previously come under fire for speaking out against gays and other religions.

In a July 2012 sermon posted online, Jeffress said, “Homosexuality is a perversion.”

The pastor also made the shocking claim in a 2011 interview that Islam and Mormonism are from the “pit of hell.”

The topic of Tebow's speech hasn't been released.  He previously spoke at Arizona’s Impact Church and to 30,000 parishioners at the Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas.
