The Duck Commander, Phil Robertson, made an appearance at Hal Henard Elementary School on Saturday evening to give his personal testimony before an overflowing gymnasium of more than 3,300.
Robertson and his family have become popular nationwide in recent years for their A&E cable television reality show, Duck Dynasty, and their multi-million dollar business making duck calls.
Mt. Zion United Methodist Church's Outdoor Ministry sponsored the event as part of their annual Wild Game Dinner outreach.
"You can only be who you are, and all you can know is Who you belong to," Robertson said in an interview prior to the event.
"The proudest thing I am is that I have a great hope one day of being raised from the dead because of Jesus of Galilee.
“That's the greatest hope I have and that's the one thing I'm more proud of than anything I know."
