They are big and bad.

The pair of former professional athletes visiting West Corinth Baptist Church are also believers.

Former NFL player William Green is one of two members of the Strength Team slated to share the word of God this weekend. Two members will be speaking Sunday at 6 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

"They will be able to grab your attention," said West Corinth pastor Seth Kirkland.

Breaking bricks and boards along with bending bars is sure to make the audience sit up and take notice.

"The things they do will definitely capture the attention of kids," said Kirkland. "It opens the door for them to share the gospel and give folks a chance to be saved."

Mike Hagen started the group of former professional athletes, who are all ministers with the specific gifting of evangelism.

"The Strength Team remains submitted and flexible to outreach," said Hagen. "We have seen thousands come to know Jesus."

Green, the 16th pick of the Cleveland Browns in the 2002 NFL Draft, rushed for over 900 yards during his rookie season. He joined the Strength Team following a five-year career in the NFL.

"Not too many first round draft choices have come to Corinth," said Kirkland. "Hopefully, William's resume will attract folks to hear his testimony."

This is no cost to attend any of the services. An offering will be taken each night.
