US Pastor gives fashion tips to fellow church goers.

Washington, May 22 ( ANI ): A pastor, who oversees Fellowship Church based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Miami, is giving fashion tips to the clergy and congregation.

Pastor Ed Young even launched a blog called to make them more fashionable.

"People have asked me for a long time 'where did you get your clothes,' said Young. The inquiries led the fashionable pastor to launch a website called," ABC News quoted him as saying.

The pastor, who says he has loved fashion since he was 2 years old, said, "I think people that are followers of the word should be the most creative people on the world."

"We should be at the forefront of fashion. I think we have the ultimate message and should dress up with the times," he added.

The pastor said that he has advised hundreds of people about the latest in fashion. And, people throughout the country ask the pastor if they can send text messages for help on what to buy such as coats, ties and suits.

Young's blog, which was launched earlier this year, advises pastors and members of the clergy on what to wear, and what not to wear and offers fashion tips about the latest trends. The idea is to help keep God current by avoiding fashion-victim status.

Young states, "You need to make the cover as good as possible so people will read the book."

In a blog post titled 'From the Runway to the Pulpit,' Young writes, "pastors aren't typically known for their fashion. Most people don't think of the runway leading up to the pulpit. But why not?! Why can't the men and women of God set the standard for the rest of the world in fashion as well as faith?"

That's what he sets out to do in blog posts that range from "Do You Wear the Right Collar" to "Skinny Jeans and Testosterone."

He says people have been receptive to his blog for the most part. However, "you're always going to have people that don't understand," Young said.

"If people take a step and think about it they would see it. God created color, God created design. He created things that look nice and we're simply doing what he wants us to do. Being a follower of Christ should be cool because God is cool, God is hip. We should live that out," he said. ( ANI )
