Their Q&A will be live at Elevation's Blakeney campus Saturday at 5 p.m. and then again Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. On Saturday, it'll be live on screens at the church's Matthews and Lake Norman locations; on Sunday, it'll be live at Blakeney and on screens at all the other locations.
Smith attends the fast-growing evangelical church, according to Elevation spokeswoman Tonia Bendickson.
And Pastor Furtick is apparently a big Panthers fan: He was spotted at the team's pre-playoff game practice last week.
The guest spot by Smith, 34, was announced by Furtick, 33, via Twitter and Instagram. He said the duo will talk about "Passionate People."
And maybe, we're guessing, they'll bring up Smith's now-famous quote: "Ice up, son."
