BRADFORD, Pa. — A northwestern Pennsylvania pastor inspired by the popular reality TV series "Duck Dynasty" is encouraging his congregation to come to church in camouflage clothing on Sunday. The Rev. Chris Terbush tells the Bradford Era he's hoping to attract new members to The First Wesleyan Church of Bradford, and to celebrate the state's outdoors heritage before deer-hunting season opens Monday.
"Ultimately, the major goal is to draw new parishioners," Terbush said. "I thought it'd be neat if nothing else to show the community who we are."
"Duck Dynasty" chronicles a family known for their long beards and camouflage clothing that has made a fortune making and selling duck decoys to hunters.
The 30-year-old pastor and outdoor enthusiast is a native of Indiana and a life-long hunter.
