Pastor holds 1-minute service to make big game

When you have to choose between church and football, sometimes football wins, even if you’re the pastor. This hilarious video shows pastor Tim Christensen in Butte, Montana, leading a 1-minute service before exposing his San Francisco 49ers shirt. The San Francisco 49ers fan held a full-length service right after.
