This weekend’s Sunday morning service at New Creation Church may have more frying pan curling, soda can crushing and phone book ripping than usual. Made up of former body builders, NFL players and Strongman contestants, evangelist John Jacobs’ Next Generation Power Force strength team is set to perform Sunday as part of a Christian mission to spread the word of God in churches across the world. “I have one guy that can wrap a six-foot-long steel bar around three times, and others that can rip two license plates in half like they’re sheets of paper and rip phonebooks in half like it’s nothing,” said Alex Morales, a Miami-based pastor who works as the team’s administrator. And in between the seemingly impossible stunts, Morales said the members tell their stories.
