Evangelist John Jacobs is known for his “powerful” presentations, combining athletes and a gospel message. His Next Generation Power Force will appear at the First Assembly of God, 601 Patton Road, Great Bend, at 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 16.
Pastor Dwight Dozier invites the public to attend these “powerful” services. Admission is free.
As the founder of Strength Evangelist Concept and Power Team, and now the Next Generation Power Force, John Jacobs has held more than 3,000 crusades in 40 countries. He says his passion is to see the lost saved, the broken-hearted healed, the depressed being encouraged and Christ getting all the credit.
John Jacobs’ Next Generation Power Force bills itself as a group of world class athletes who have performed the world’s greatest exhibitions of power, strength, speed, inspiration and motivation throughout the United States and internationally.
These giant men, many weighing over 300 pounds, can blow up hot water bottles, snap baseball bats, lift telephone poles, rip phone books and license plates, and smash walls and concrete. Jacobs and his team have been endorsed by governors, senators and congressmen for their positive contribution to the lives of America’s youth.
In 1976, Jacobs founded strength ministries by utilizing feats of strength to communicate positive messages to audiences. Jacobs and his team have been featured in People Magazine, the Saturday Evening Post, and on the television show “Walker, Texas Ranger.” He has also been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN. For over 10 years Jacobs had his own television show, “The Power Connection,” viewed by millions around the world.
Jacobs and his team have performed in over 30,000 school assemblies over the past 30 years, professing that inspiration plus motivation equals academic and personal achievement. They tackle the tough issues of drugs, alcohol, violence, abstinence, peer pressure and suicide.
