Church Tips Pizza Delivery Driver $700

Jeff Louis, 22, was clocked into work early at Gionino's Pizza in Ohio to deliver pizza to Life Point Church. He went in thinking it would be just another day at work, but Pastor Ken Wright had something else in mind.

The pastor told WKYC, "I just thought, 'Let's just tip him $100. It's the holiday season.'"

But when they called Jeff up onto the stage to receive the tip, something even bigger happened.

Jeff explains, "The most amazing thing happened. This whole church came up and gave me over $700 for a tip!"

In tears, Jeff recorded his own reaction to the generous act on his cell phone later and explained the money helped him in more ways than they expected.

"I've been having such a hard time lately just struggling to stay clean and everything, and I'm just trying to get my life back. It just really truly amazes me that people who don't even know me just wanted to help me out that much."
