He has the biggest Assemblies of God church in the United States, and he's using his resources to honor the unsuspecting. Case in point: A pizza delivery driver, who stepped on stage recently without a clue to what was about to happen.

"We at New Life Covenant realized that this element of honor has been missing in our culture," Pastor Wilfredo De Jesús, aka Pastor Choco, says. "And a lot of the problems that we're facing in our culture, if you really get to the root of it, is because of this lack of honor."

To demonstrate, De Jesús ordered a pizza and blessed the delivery driver with a $100 tip. But others followed his example.

The move caught Franklin Graham's attention, who posted the story on Facebook.
