Packers Ty Montgomery spends bye week at Germantown church

NOW: Packers Ty Montgomery spends bye week at Germantown church

NEXT:

It's bye week for the Green Bay Packers. Running back Ty Montgomery spent his weekend with parishioners at Life Church in Germantown. 

"There's a ton of players who would do this or that and he's like 'no, I need to rest up but if I have an opportunity to share my faith with people who need to hear it. I want to utilize my platform,'" said Ryan Coggins, Executive Pastor at Life Church.

The church was packed with people eagerly waiting to hear what Montgomery had to say.

Montgomery, a Texas native, is a devout Christian and grew up going to church. But it was his own self discovery that helped him build a relationship with God. 

"Continue to be an example and plant seeds. Sometimes we don't have to say something to convict people of what they are doing . Sometimes just the way we live out life and us not speaking, we allow God to speak," said Montgomery. 

This is the second year Life Church has brought in a Packers player as a guest speaker. They've found that their attendance of the events nearly doubles and they hope to continue it next year.
