Willie Robertson’s speech at Odessa’s Crossroads Fellowship


Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson said the secret to his family’s success is keeping priorities in line regarding faith, family and in their case, ducks, Sunday morning at Odessa’s Crossroads Fellowship.

“We don’t measure success by how much money we have,” Willie Robertson said.

“We judge our success really through our family…we measure success by having the platform now of being able to go all over the country and talk about things that are important to us.”

Willie Robertson spoke to more than 5,000 people during three services Sunday, Crossroads Fellowship Lead Pastor Griffin Jones said.

“You might think it’s weird for a church to host one of the stars of a backwoods reality show,” Griffin Jones said.

“But we’re thrilled to do that because you probably know <<Duck Dynasty>> is the most watched show on cable of all time. It’s a cultural phenomenon now.”

Willie Robertson said one of the main reasons the show is so popular is because it appeals to all ages and lacks profanity, making it parent-approved.

“You guys who watch it and support it are so important to the show,” he said.

“It’s not to make us famous or richer than we are, it’s to make a difference in the entertainment we watch and the kind of entertainment our children are watching. Isn’t it nice to be able to sit down and watch a show with the whole family and not have to worry?”
