The "Super Bowl of Preaching" was held Saturday evening at Crossroads Community Church.
Pastors Brian Tome and Chuck Mingo went head-to-head in a light-hearted preaching competition complete with pre-game tailgating, a halftime show and commentary.
Each preacher got two nine-minute quarters with a random phrase and video clip that they had to work into their message.
Those in attendance had the opportunity to participate in the service's halftime show turning church into a spectator sport.
Crossroads will hold the competition again tomorrow at their Oakley, Mason and Florence locations.
