It is well-known that Tim Tebow is a proud Christian. Well, now he’s here to play in the New York City market.

“I’m concerned that the fans are hospitable,” said Pastor Terry Smith, head of the Life Christian Church in West Orange, where he says ex-reciever Jerricho Cotchery is just one of the former Jets in his congregation. “But he’s not as vocal about it as Tim Tebow is. I like both styles.”

Smith in confident that Tebow will find a way to fit in here, even with the NYC spotlight.

“Who we are does not change. It doesn’t what the geography is,” he said.

Since Tebow’s geographical location has changed, he may need a new church to attend, and Smith has extended an invitation.

“I’ve already Tweeted to him,” he said.
