A Church Tipped A Pizza Delivery Guy $700, But It Meant More Than They Realized
December 3, 2015
When 22 year-old pizza delivery driver Jeff Louis brought an order to Life Point Church in Mentor, Ohio, he probably didn't expect an experience that would shake him to the core.
That's exactly what happened after the congregation gave him a tip of more than $700, inspiring him to film an impromptu reaction outside the church that he posted to his YouTube channel.
According to WKYC.com, Life Point's pastor Ken Wright came up with the idea of tipping the delivery driver $100 in the spirit of the holidays. "Yeah, I just thought let's tip him $100. It's the holiday season," Wright told the station.
The congregation asked Louis to take the pizzas up to the stage and then, one by one, tipped him.

"You know, the most amazing thing happened," a teary-eyed Louis says on the video. "This whole church came up and gave me over $700 for a tip."
"You know it was spontaneous. It just happened," Wright said. "They started lining up one by one with their own cash tips."
But for Louis, who is in recovery, it was more than just a generous tip — it was a restoration of hope.
